Return From Flight

Thanks to all who expressed their condolences.

Found myself awake at 4 AM, so at 4:30 AM I turned on the news to check on the status of Discovery. Rainy weather at the Kennedy Space Center forced the shuttle to miss the planned 4:46 AM landing; they're planning to try again for a 6:22 AM landing. (All times are EDT.) If I'm still awake when they start the descent at 5:15 AM I'll keep watching.
