Well, I live ten minutes from the event, have not managed to make it to any
SCA event since my first one, Candlemas '95, and I am not stirring outside
this house even if Saint Bridget herself were coming.  Too many people here
-- including myself, I should say -- don't really know how to drive in this
stuff.  The Austin and surrounding area world is pretty much shut down,
with schools, many businesses and several overpasses just plain closed.
And it's supposed to get worse, not better.

If the event is still happening, or if folks are beginning to travel now, I
advise *extreme* caution.  I don't mean to put a damper on things, but I
don't want anyone to get hurt.

I'm so sorry to hear that!  I hope you don't have long to wait...
