So, basically, everything is fine here. We had some very high winds last night and the power was out for about four hours, but that happens all the time, even without hurricanes...it is nothing like those photos of NYC, Atlantic City, Ocean City etc. here. We were lucky.
And in fact, extra lucky, because I had been trying to get hold of Mirah for more than a week in order to do a Philadelphia Weekly feature on her, and it finally came through late yesterday afternoon (it's due tomorrow, or at least it was before the world went underwater). Weirdly, I was on the phone with Mirah talking about her upcoming tour when the lights went out here. She was telling me about the older songs that she almost has to do, every time she does a live show, or else her fans get very disappointed. One of them, appropriately enough, was "Cold Cold Water."
I hope you are all well and safe.
