They opened the pilot windows of the jet and stuck flags in special holders while it taxis into position. Nice touch. I've never seen that before. I wonder about the hardware they use and the aerodynamics at 500 MPH.

Edit: On second look, they may just be sticking them out the window.

I will be in the Emergency Operations Center as a Liaison. I still have no idea what I'll be doing other than using the wifi.

Daily rush traffic is WAY down this morning as people have started taking off work and have left for mini vacations.

Same thing happened here, according to the papers. I wouldn't know, because I took 2 vacation days and ran errands around home.
