Comfort and Utility: Favorite things round up

Posted on November 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Last week was full of apprehension, shaking windows, and relentless rain as I rode out storm Sandy with millions of others. Thankfully, D.C. was spared the full force of Sandy’s wrath – I didn’t even have to break out my flashlight.
