Thanks for the update here, Peter.

Alex and I have been trying to find a way for one of us to make it to 
the F2F, but given the coming weather (risking delays and cancellations) 
and some family obligations we both have, it looks like we will not be 
able to attend.

Please accept our regrets.  We will attempt to join the discussion 
remotely, though I think everyone agrees that there's no substitute for 
the time we spend face to face.  Safe travels to everyone.

Regards,
Sid and Alex
