So ... Weather, eh?  
Ice storms. They task me.

With a fairly nasty layer of ice already on the roads yesterday evening and more predicted for today, Delta canceled all flights out of Indianapolis (as did everyone else). Meaning, of course, that we were not going to be able to make our connection to the UK to arrive tomorrow (2 Feb). We thought we'd get an earlier flight scheduled to leave during this morning's gap in activity, but late last night those got canceled too.

So, the flight is put off until tomorrow and we will arrive on Thursday the 3rd, as usual instead of getting an extra day.

The animals are at their respective spas, as we took them thinking we had that early flight today. Not really cost-effective to go spring them from captivity for a single night, so we're having a pet-free couple of days.

The main event is scheduled to move through here about 1 pm and go for about 6 hours before stopping. We'll hope it can be cleared off the roads before about 3 pm tomorrow afternoon.

I wish you two the best of luck getting to the UK. If you happen to run into Stevie Mac and Katie, Tim and Annie, Talis, or Gwen, PLEASE say Hi and give them big hugs for me. Maybe some year we'll be able to join you guys.

Have a wonderful time and please have Brenda raise a cuppa nice tea for me.

Safe travel when you do get out.

The last 2 filk conventions I attended had plane delays.
