The Huffington Post has video from a segment on today's edition of CNN's "American Morning" in which a Memphis woman talks about being out of work and living without electricity for nearly a year. Jacqueline Mosley was among Memphians who had their heat temporarily restored during last week's severe cold snap. Before that, she used a propane heater at home and and spent mornings at the library to warm up.
Mosley, who is in her 60s, moved back to Memphis from Maryland to care for her mother, who has since died. She says her struggles with poverty have made her a more humble person. She also appreciates the way the city has helped out; after her power was restored, a pipe burst in her kitchen, and she lost her water service. However, the city told her a crew would fix the pipe for her.
