Two million school children in 7 East Coast states are going to be home from school Monday because of the massive storm that is a convergence of Hurricane Sandy and two winter storm systems. reports that the federal government and a number of public transportation systems are also shut down for the duration of the storm.

On a personal note, your intrepid PNN blogger is within Sandy's reach - near Boston - so if the blog goes quiet, you'll know my power and/or Internet connection has gone out.  Here's hoping to see you all tomorrow!
