I'd really like to have had a more positive post to make here

I'm home, as safe as can be expected and physically OK. My office is closed, my city has advised everyone to stay indoors and shelter in place, an MIT police officer was shot and killed a few blocks away less than an hour after I walked through that area last night on my way home....

I think "physically OK" will have to do for now.

Thank you for posting. Hazy idea on the geography, so glad when I see posts of "Ok here!"

We actually have a few of those here in SoCal, small polities who stubbornly hold onto their city status though the megalopolis has amoebaed all around it on all sides.

Thank you--I love this kind of trivia as much as I adore cruising GoogleEarth . . .

During that water-supply episode, I resorted to biking over to the Harvard Science Center with 10 or 15 plastic bottles, and filling each one from the drinking fountain there.

Stay warm, cozy, safe. Hang in there.

I don't know very many people in Boston, but I am glad to hear from each of you and I will spare some thoughts for the ones I don't know.

Physically ok is about all that can be expected. *Hugging you close*

Glad to hear you're ok enough. I'm relieved my girlfriend is out of town.

I hear you, meus amicus.

*hugs you*

Really, really glad to see this post.

Thanks for making the post you made.

Thanks so much for letting us know. I can't imagine how it feels. David and I lived in Hudson from 1981 to 1985, and haven't been back since Noreascon 3, but every time I hear street names or look at a map, I realize I've been to those places. That's bad enough, but it's not my home any more, and it is yours. I'm so sorry.

P.

Edited to correct convention's name -- of course the spell checker wouldn't know it either way, so I didn't look closely.

I think I'm really glad to hear from you, and hold you close in my heart as you deal with "mentally okay". *hugs*

Glad you're OK - realistically I knew that the odds of anyone I know being hurt are very low, Boston is a big city, but it didn't stop me worrying a little.
