despite some mildly serious wind and rain, Sandy pretty much missed Philadelphia. i had been bracing for the power to go out (and stressing out slightly about the absurd amount of perishables we had stupidly bought on Saturday night), but it never did. however, the power at work went out on Monday and never fully came back on until this evening. so, outside of my one class in Wilmington on Wednesday, i spent the entire week working in the studio. which made me wish i could do that full time.
