persis: (On Top Of The World)
I have taken the plunge and bought plane tickets, so I am going to be at OVFF unless something drastic happens.

Depart Boston at 7:30 am, on Southwest, change at Chicago Midway, arrive Columbus 12:40 pm on Friday, Oct 25. Leave Columbus 6:35 pm Sunday, Oct 27, change planes Atlanta, arrive Boston 11:37 pm. Anyone needs more flight info, let me know.

As far as I know, wee Talis will probably be working that weekend, and has said she cannot decide now (she just called me from my Dad's in Jamestown, CO, and won;t be home til late on the 15th). I guess I will have to bring pictures.

Boy is it good to be writing here again.

I am ensconced in Columbia, MD until my rescheduled flight home tomorrow afternoon (first available when I was rebooking). The school closings lists for MA are unhelpful as the schools I am supposed to be assessing this week for PISA were not on the list this am when I checked, and now the lists have been reset and nothing is on them. However, when I called tomorrow's school, I got recorded sorrow, and left a message. I will keep checking my work e-mail... and call in the early am.

Flight last night from Columbus to Baltimore was delayed and delayed, because some political VIP was landing and all other flights had to circle and circle. My plane had to divert to Detroit to refuel, then come back to Columbus. It finally arrived about 9:30, and took off shortly after 10, arriving at BWI around 11:40 with a very bumpy landing.

OVFF was lots of fun, Interfilk Guests were the Blibbering Humdingers, a Wizard Rock duo who were loads of fun, both in concert and in filk circles. Auction went well, although my hot sauces and honey did not go for as much as I had hoped... but they were well received. It's hard when there are so many items for auction. Caught up with a lot of folks, but still missed spending time with some others. Talis was missed by many, and everyone could not believe how grown up she looked in her Not Back to School picture.

I am waiting for clothes to dry. I brought one carry-on bag; full of two computers, one printer, my work manual, some CD's and a bra (I was thinking ahead to this week as I was supposed to travel to Pittsfield today, and need that piece of undergarments).

On-line weather reports are very unhelpful, as they mostly contain wind and flood warnings. This am we heard than lots of vans were overturning on the roads down here. Spencer is driving home thru this, but has said that if the roads are flooded or otherwise closed, he will stop. Talis, Dakota, and Winnie are safely ensconced in the barn in Manchester-by-the-Sea, and David is at home. We will all weather this out, hopefully with less damage than feared. I am sure we will turn on the TV at some point to see what progress has been made. In the mean time, I have books to read, food to prep and eat, good company... and eventually I will get home.
