This morning at 5am we were awake and up and checking airlines on t'interwebs. My American nephew has been here visiting and was due to fly out at 8am to New York. As we suspected, the impending storm/hurricane sandy was closing down the Eastern USA and his flight was cancelled, so he will be flying home, hopefully, tomorrow. Either way he remains here in England until he can return safely.
I hope that those people in the path of Mother Nature showing how she rolls, are safe and stay that way.
