Sandy, Day 6. Finished reading Ferdydurke last night. Our neighbor, bless him, offered one end of a live extension cord to us. Orange drop cords run snake-like all through our house powering only the essentials: two compact fluorescent lights (for reading), modem, router, wifi, and various portable electronic devices. Most importantly, our deep freeze is working again.
LIPA trucks spotted in the neighborhood. Three on our street, but when they saw the downed tree, they turned around and drove away. We waved from the street corner looking as forlorn as possible.
Spent the day revising one of my works-in-progress. And wrote a new scene.
