Well the conference is in full swing, despite the fact that a big percentage of folks who registered either had to stay home or go back home to deal with the wrath of Sandy. Others couldn’t get here because flights were canceled. Some may have to stay a day or two longer because they cannot get flights back home until after the storm has passed.
Those of us that here are holding down the fort and trying to stay focused on the speakers; but you have to know that saying hurricane to emergency management folks is the equivalent of saying squirrel to dogs. Everyone here is keeping abreast of the developments and communicating with colleagues in the affected states.
I share some photos today from the conference, but mostly I send out to my affected colleagues a message of support as they start to get Sandy’s impact. Stay safe my friends – stay safe.
