Safety comes first.

With that understood; I may have a hard time rescheduling. I've got a
lot of travel in the near future. So, personally, if it's possible to
attend safely, I will be there. If the safety is questionable, I am
fine rescheduling, too. I'll wait to hear from KWLUG folks and let you
guys make the call.

As for question, please bring them. I will say that if we drift too
far off topic, I might request folks hold off until after the
presentation. We could even grab a coffee after if the presentation
location has to close up.

See you then (hopefully)!
