To all of my Northeastern friends, please stay safe and warm during this blizzard.  It looks like we're in for quite the storm tonight!  I have my fingers and toes crossed that our power won't be out for too long.  My area is forecast to have up to 3ft of snow - I haven't seen that since the Blizzard of '78 - and that was a doozy! 

Take care all, and stay safe!!

Cyn

    Traveling today

    thanks. I took a chemo break and went to key west.am traveling today and all flights are delayed. Am at the airport now. Smartphones rock! 

    Being a stage iv cancer patient, not much stresses me out anymore but I have appointments at nih tomorroW. Worst case, they reschedulE.  Again, hooray for smartphones. I will probably watch yesterday's episode of downton abbey at the airport if we are really delayed.

    key west was great. The seawater was great for my chemo damaged skin/ feels soft again!

    Yes, be safe everyone

    Sadly, the only Blizzard I can get is from Dairy Queen (Midnight Truffle - Yum!).  We are in our fourth year of drought, and desperately need snow in the mountatins. So, if you could send some of your eastern snow back west, it would be much appreciated.

    It is ferocious but nothing

    It is ferocious but nothing Mags isn't used to.:-). Up to 3 feet expected but I am hunkered inside warm and safe. My niece is an MGH oncology nurse and went in to work prepared to stay a couple of days. I am grateful to the many who go above and beyond so others can be safe....

    Prayers for those for whom this storm is more than an inconvenience.

    Stay safe my Eastern side friends

    Please don't drive unless you have too, I'm sure you are all prepared with batteries, propane lanterns, snuggy blankies and hoping most of you have firewood and fireplace and gas stoves :).

    Will be thinking of you all and hoping you stay warm hunkered down.

    Hey Karin,

    Key West rocks, glad you had a good time.  And a perfect time for a little sun. 

    Hope your trip home was uneventful.

    thanks

    thanks - trip was eventful but I made it home on the same day. No major delays. I made my connections.

    So yesterday I"m having fun in the sun, and this morning I"m scraping ice from my car. D'oh! 

    Made it to NIH, got my scans. Was cranky having not eaten in 18 hours but all is well.  had coffee with a guy who was a 23 year survivor of kidney cancer. very interesting person. from researching him and his particular case, a couple of drugs were developed - I didn't understand the science but they apparently found some mutations on his cancer that helped others. Very cool. He was meeting the secretary of DHHS tomorrow. A photo OP, but still. 

    hope everyone else in our community on the East Coast/in the Northeast is OK. 

    cheers
