    Lots of cancellations but they are improvising. Music is amazing - in the Meijer auditorium on the second floor.

    Yup, I'll be shoveling out first as well. Everyone, no rush & be safe :) Kumar, I should chat with you about my intentions on a new computer. I will be getting a variety of opinions for this.

    I will get there when I can. I have much more snow shoveling before I can leave my driveway.

    I still plan to target being there by 10, parking for free at Ford Museum. [masked] I don't expect everyone to be there at that time w/weather-roads.
