As many of you know my son stayed in Hoboken rather than come home before the storm. I had a chance to get him out even the night of the storm but he wanted to stay. He can not stay in his apartment so he was staying at his School which has power only in the Cafeteria but that is where he is eating and charging his phone.
Today we asked him again to come home and he still wanted to stay. We figured he and his friends since it was Halloween they would be having fun. Well both me and my wife were wrong. My son is now at Hoboken City hall Helping the town. I still do not know what he is doing there but I know he is doing good to help. We are worried he is going to get something from the contaminated water. I think my little buddy is all grown up.
He sounds like a nice and very considerate young man to help others.
I am surprised to read that the subway will be partially open already. I am sure that they know what they are doing. Good to know that everyone survived it but some with quite a bit of damage, regretfully.
We just heard from my son. He is charge of helping to distribute the Food to the people. Not sure if he is in one place where they go to City Hall or if he has to get the food to where people are living. I hope he is just staying in one spot. I do not want him walking threw that muck.
On Tuesday afternoon I was able to walk down the hill to the liquor store and replenish my supply. Wish I had known yuour were that close, we could have had dinner on Tuesday night.
We were able to fly out (from BWI) on our scheduled flight at 3:40 PM, 31 Oct and arrived at BNA around 4:30 PM (Central DST). We were home by 7:05 PM. Lucky!!
At that age you gotta get out and help.
I remember being the same way during Hurricane Andrew.
We went down there in the middle of the mess every day to help.
Luckily for us we didn't have flooding, but there were alot of people trapped that needed help.
Unfortunately couldn't do it anymore even if I wanted to.
Oh to have that youthful strength again.
Frank, your son sounds like a great kid. The mayor of hoboken is sure a feisty and plain spoken person.
