Cuba Cancelled

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

My previously scheduled talk for tomorrow night, Thursday, November 1, on Birding Cuba for the Brooklyn Bird Club has been cancelled due to transit issues and the continuing closure of Prospect Park where we usually hold meetings. It will likely be rescheduled in early December.

Update: The new date is Thursday, December 6 at the Litchfield Villa in Prospect Park. See you there!

I’m Alive

Just a quick note for anyone who cares (and still has Internet themselves) that Hurricane Sandy has so far not materially affected me or my family. We’re all fine. Power, water, phone, and Internet all remain on in the apartment.

Those of you who’ve visited me at home know that we live on one the highest points in Brooklyn several stories up. According to the evacuation maps, we’re good through at least a Category 3 and maybe worse. We have plenty of food and water. Cancelled subway service will eventually become problematic, but for now we’re just riding it out.
