We decided to cancel. I have to admit it was tempting just to fly because plane tickets dropped down below $99 one-way which was a HUGE savings from what we paid. It was hard to tell the kids, but 2 of them live in the moment and took it in stride, my oldest (who looks forward to things more) was kind of figuring that we might have to cancel. Either way, things could always be worse.
A very responsible decision and a teachable moment for your kids.

You did the right thing. My 89 year old mom lives by herself, I'm designated relative to feed her, she been starving herself unfortunately, hopefully things will work itself out.

I removed an off-topic rant and reply regarding FL (and AL) becoming a "hot zone" like NY. This thread has run its course and is locked. See: Personal Consumer Issues
