Coming up with a backup plan if MIT is closed, including wifi and phone lines, seems like a prudent prerequisite for proceeding.

An interesting bit from that article is a prediction of a foot and a half of snow for Boston...

So: we're set up to have the meeting start late morning on Monday, the forecasts predict 9h of sun for Sunday, and speculation about what else might happen won't help much at this stage.  I suggest that we all take a deep breath, and look forward to productive conversations next week.
