Topic: ASTRO Annual Meeting

Our Barbara is attending the ASTRO Annual Meeting, Boston for us:
https://www.astro.org/Meetings-and-Even … Index.aspx

I received notification from ASTRO that the weather situation is watched closely.  Don't quite know what that means because, according to their latest mail the shuttle buses to and from the conference have been cancelled. 
I hope for everyone to be safe.  Given the situation, Barbara may only have limited information to share with us.

Hugs,
Marion

Re: ASTRO Annual Meeting

Hello from Boston,
Yes the ASTRO Convention closed at 1:00 today, the buses are stopping at 2:00. I just got back to my hotel safe and sound. Attendance was down at the convention, but handed out information to those who stopped by the booth. Most of them being from London, Asia and India. Doing the best I can to raise awareness one person at a time. The wind is really howling in the city with a light rain.  Going to get worse later in the day. Staying put with a good book. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Wow, Barbara, glad you are safe and dry!  We are having an ONC Nurse's Conference in Phoenix in November, no weather problems here, I can swear to that one! We have boring weather, always sunny! Thank you though for your representation at ASTRO,

Received this a few minutes ago. 

Due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the Boston area, the live webcast of the Plenary Session has been canceled. The Plenary Session will be recorded and made available on the ASTRO website at a later date. We will contact you via email when the webcast is available.
