Decision was made this morning.

Staying at the pad during the storm is "unlikely"

horenz: Roll back is hoped to begin by 10am...

Who asked the last question about making a final rollback decision tonight - obviously he wasn't at the press conference? Sheez... Beat out the question before, asking what L- day we're at.

End of the briefing says no definite schedule for the next one. Maybe an L2 alert can be sent out when it's announced?

We'll do that here. We'll follow the Russian situation with Soyuz on L2.

I wish they would change the view on the webcams so we can watch the STS-116 boosters being taken on a day out.

Nice one. Wanted to see that 116 stack being moved. I'll copy that over to the 116 update section too.
