Here in New York City, the heavy winds started last night. The rain started this morning around 6:30. Hurricane Sandy approacheth. It’s already terrible outside, and the worst of it won’t even hit until tonight. They’ve evacuated some of New York City’s coastal regions. They’re expecting storm surges that will be the tallest in our city’s history. Scary stuff.
Regarding World Fantasy, it seems the track of Hurricane Sandy will bring the storm right over the Toronto area on Thursday, the day I’m to fly in. I’m keeping track of things via flightaware.com, a really good site for checking whether your flight is canceled or not. Right now, though, I’d say it’s not looking good for my arrival Thursday. Friday looks like it could also be bad in the area, which means there may not be flights that day either. There’s a good chance right now that I won’t be able to make it in for my panel Friday at 1PM. There is also a chance I won’t make it to World Fantasy at all if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
I’ll keep you posted.
