A lot of people have been worried about me, if the calls reaching home are an indication. Many people in Australia hadn’t known exactly where I was staying, but everyone’s fears have been settled. I’m safely an hour or so away from the disaster, in Islandia, which is right in the middle of Long Island.
I’ve just been told that everyone in my company has been accounted for, which is great news, seeing that CA does have an office in downtown New York.
I’m due to fly out of New York for LA and Sydney on Friday night (NY Time), but at the moment, the airlines are still sorting things out: every plane in the US was grounded as soon as the problems started, and haven’t flown since.
