I can't help but wonder if m.v.a.'s were cars going to or coming from THE PACKIE. I did notice that it didn't continue all night. There was enough to do.

Thank you for the updates, Bobby. Some of us have jobs that require we must show up for and having a live time update gives us the safest way in. Wish I could take a snow day.
