Oh Sandy!

Sandy has gone, (if she would have looked like this I’d be a lot more upset about the brief time we had together) the power is on, and the Internet connection is working!  Damage is limited to trees that were snapped off, a shingle here or there, and some flashing around one chimney. 

My office is closed, I’m not sure if it has water in it or not – the only thing between our building and the East River is the FDR and a helipad.  And since there is no mass transit running between CT and Manhattan I have some time on my hands.

I was actually feeling motivated to paint some Russian’s again and had planned on finishing up my Russian Guard Jagers, when disaster struck!  In my earlier rush to paint these I forgot that the Russian Guard Jagers had Orange facings, not Red like the ‘normal’ Jagers.  O.K., no problem, I can paint over the red… except I can’t find my orange paint.  Given the number of trees that are still down and stores that are closed I really don’t feel like making a run to the hobby store.

Maybe next weekend I’ll some photos of completed figures to post.

So much lead, so little time.
