Off the Grid

October 31, 2012

Because of Hurricane Sandy, Tikalon has been without electrical power since Monday, October 29, 2012, as has most of New Jersey. It may take a week before power is restored.

Sandy is a familiar version of the name, Sandra. Sandra is a principal character in my book, Mother Wode. I guess Sandra didn't like her character development!

Hurricane Sandy has been called the New York metropolitan area's Katrina.

Will such storms become a common occurrence?
