Chapter 2: May 2011
There was another grad student from another department living across the street. That guy never even lost power! For awhile, I had a 100 foot extension cord running over to his house, so I didn’t have the use the generator all the time. He was a cool dude, but moved out not too long after this photo. He said it was “too distracting” and in some ways I wish I would have come to the same conclusion.
Sometimes, people said they were amazed that only some of my windows got broken. I tried to tell them, almost every single one had holes.
I went to get some more bottled water, and they also gave me a case of MREs. I still have some peanut butter leftover from those.
Also, remember those 1×4 boards that Home Depot so graciously had stacked and ready to go for me? They had a lot of mold.
Also, chicken and dumplings hot lunch today, courtesy of the Red Cross!
