    I am so glad it was cancelled. I was in tears just hearing about the stories. I cant imagine having an event at this time. Resources of all kinds are scarce and they surely dont need more competition for them. I feel like I am in mourning rather, and I dont even live there. Emotions are running high and people are devastated.

    I am also so angry at how the warnings were either not given or not heeded. I read about a woman who lost her 4 yo and 2 yo due to not having a place to take refuge. The 90 mph winds dumped her Suv in a hole and swept away her boys. and how hospital generators were not working and decided so very late to evacuate people and babies who even depend on electricity to live. I feel so sad and so angry. So many people lost everything and some even their lives were lost. I cant understand what happened.

    We live close enough to Atlanta that we get their news. I saw on the news last night that several people from Atlanta were already on the plane and on the way to NYC when the marathon was cancelled.

    Some Australian competitors had already got there I think when it was cancelled. Obviously they were very disappointed but have stayed to help in the clean up efforts
