The center of once Hurricane, later Superstorm Sandy passed over Baltimore Tuesday morning. We were thankfully spared the kind of devastation seen elsewhere.

Others on the Atlantic Coast, in our nearby mountains and in one of this country’s greatest cities were not so lucky. Our thoughts are with all those suffering from the storm.

Johns Hopkins University was closed Monday and Tuesday of this week. Please allow us a little extra time to respond to your inquiries, process materials and to simply count our blessings.
