After wavering for two days and several hours, Kongo finally caved and cancelled a trip to Washington DC scheduled to start tomorrow morning. He then spent a couple of hours on the phone canceling John his driver to the airport, flights, hotels, and rental cars and rescheduling for the following week. It’s not that he’s afraid of hurricanes (he’s been through several, both ashore and at sea) it’s that all those wimps on the East Coast cancelled all the meetings and headed out to “The Giant” or something to buy toilet paper, which is what they always do whenever a storm approaches the nation’s capitol. So, Kongo tips his wings at Sandy and decides to park himself in sunny San Diego next week and head east the following Monday which kind of jams him up because he’s off to Kiev right after that. It’s a jungle out there.
Travel safe. Have fun. Avoid bad weather when you have to fly.
