Power Outage in Newark Creates A Crazy Morning for Me

It was a pretty normal morning for me until I reached New York Penn Station at 7:30.  I looked at my cell phone and recieved a text message stating that a power outage in Newark affected several buildings at NJIT including the Central Avenue Building which houses the Van Houten Library where I work.  Luckily I hadn't boarded a New Jersey Transit Train.  At that time the announcement said that the buildings would open at 1 PM.  I decided to come home and take a half a vacation day if necessary.

I took the subway and arrived home at about 8:45.  At about 10:20 an announcement was made that the affected buildings would be closed all day.  It turned out to be a "snow day" on a sunny spring day.
