Survived the tornadoes that ripped through NC on Saturday afternoon. Just got power back this morning, but considering we were told not to expect service to be restored until Tuesday night, I feel very fortunate. Even more fortunate that my house is still intact. Several people I know were not so lucky.

Heard that flights out of New York were delayed and cancelled in some cases due to things being so messed up in the Southeast (love that domino effect) and at least one person missed seeing Frankenstein because their flight to London got cancelled. I can't imagine how disappointing that would be. She was saying that she and her husband were going to try to get day tickets for tomorrow's performance.

Now that I have my router back up and running, I can stop relying on the iPad to get online and do some of the work I need to do for the Undershaw benefit!

Wow. I've lived in Singapore all my life and it's like Washington and LA and suburbs and tiny slots of countryside and basically anything you can find in a country squeezed onto an island. I think a place like Raleigh, where everybody knows everybody, would be like...I don't know... like my office. Not the shops or anything, but my office alone. Haha.

I'm actually heading to DC soon too, mid May, for a work trip. But it's a whirlwind trip (meeting the regulators~) and I'm only going to be able to spend a day there, so I doubt I'd get to see much of the US. Pity. ;_;

Aw, that's unfortunate that you won't have more time there. D.C. is a very interesting city. The Smithsonian museums alone make it worthwhile. Growing up, I spent a lot of time at the museums. My dad used to own a security/alarm company and he helped design and install some of the alarm systems for the Smithsonian so we were there all the time. And because admission is free, I assumed that all museums must be free. Imagine my shock when I finally went abroad in my early 20s and went into the Louvre for the first time. I was like, "You want how much?!" LOL
