The Best Laid Plans

The best laid plans aren’t always perfect. 

This past weekend we were going to Austin for the Austin City Limits Music Festival.  Hurricane Rita was certainly a distraction.  We knew that we’d be OK weather wise and travel wise but should we take the possible risk of tornado’s?  20,000 refugees in Austin from other parts of Texas.  Bands were canceling.  Such a positive event shouldn’t be enjoyed on a downer type weekend so we canceled on Thursday night.  Such a drag but there is always next year.

We had everything in place.  Kids were taken care of.  My mom came up and watched the crew so we could still check out of town and we did.  We took to the East End of Long Island which was just glorious weather wise.  There is really nothing like checking out of the craze for a few days.  We are now recharged and raring to go.

Alas, the best laid plans are not always perfect.
