I am receptive to rescheduling, but I will be foolish enough to come in
if it's on for Monday.

I was foolish enough to be travelling to Toronto and back tonight -- the
worst driving was on the 401 between Toronto and Guelph. Rural roads
from Guelph to Elmira were practically bare.

Digimer: Where are you travelling from? I had this vague idea that you'd
moved to the KW area recently...
