Of course you'd choose the airport that the furthest away. ;) What time is the flight?

I wouldn't say BWI is the furthest away. There's no direct route to any of the airports from us but the route to BWI tends to have the least traffic, which evens out the slightly longer driving distance in my experience.

Looks like they are calling for a significant snowfall starting Monday night. It probably won't significantly disrupt traffic by next weekend, but the parking situation might get interesting.

Meet is this Saturday! oh god I'm totally not ready yet why is it this week

If anyone is interested in coming and has not gotten the information yet, please send me a PM and I'll get it to you! For those who don't usually join us, we like to start around 1 PM and usually go out to dinner as a group around 6-7 PM.

I ended up getting about 3-4" of snow yesterday, which translates to fairly large snow piles along where I would ordinarily tell guests to park. I don't know how much melting will occur between now and the meet, but I would suggest both carpooling and perhaps bringing a shovel in case you need to literally dig yourself a parking space .-. I'll try to keep an eye on things and will post updates. Remember, do NOT park at the sales offices or you will likely be towed!

Oh yeah: if you are bringing console games, make sure to bring sticks or your preferred controller as well. The only consoles I have available here are PS4, PS3, 360 (JP), and SNES/SFC. I do not have SD A/V cables for the 360. I have two CRTs (one horizontal, one tate) set aside for SD consoles. Both TVs take S-Video and component (240p/480i).

I have a very important question: you DO own Garegga for the PS4, right?

Yes. Also, I found out that Radio Shack did, in fact, still exist and there is now a pile of wire, resistors, and other crap waiting just in case we feel like doing something with it.

The snow piles unfortunately have not melted, but I think you should be able to find parking along the side streets still. I tried to clear spots behind my house also, but at best we can fit two cars back there (and please do not park in the alley).

Might also be useful to have an s-video splitter; I'm not sure if I have one laying around. If anyone has one bring it please.
