Greetings from New Jersey in the aftermath of the superstorm

Princeton, NJ after Hurricane Sandy

The Parkinson’s Unity Walk staff hopes you and your loved ones weathered Hurricane Sandy safely and have fared reasonably well in its aftermath. We express compassion for all those who experienced loss or hardship during the storm and hold you in our thoughts and hearts.

The Unity Walk is held each year in Central Park but our office is in Kingston, NJ just north of Princeton. We lost power, like so many others in our area, and are grateful that PSE&G is working around the clock to restore power as quickly as possible. We consider ourselves lucky that the power in the office came back on yesterday. Most of us also lost power at home but for the most part, it has come back. We were relatively spared compared to the loss that others have experienced. Local schools have been closed all week. There are down trees everywhere, making many roads impassable. Traffic lights along major roads had been out and the lights are starting to come back.

This storm had a wide reach. So does the Unity Walk. Please let us hear from you and let us know how you’re doing.

We are back at work, grateful to be here, and busy planning for April. I can’t remember the last time I was that happy to be back on email! We hope to be receiving confirmation of the date within the next month or so. We’ll keep you posted.
