Following received from Jim W1QUO before the net : -
"Dear Bill,
We have experienced a severe ice storm and the power is expected
to be out for the next several days. We have evacuated our home and are
now living with Jim, jr. (in Concord Mass) Antenna may be damaged.
It will probably be some time before we get back on the air.

I missed this one.  Many thanks to Brian G3LUW for the following report :-
"A very noisy net on 80m.   We tried moving frequency to no avail. John EA/G4HMG was reasonably strong and was copied by Jim G4MVO,
Tommy G2FUU and Ralph M0BDI,  who had returned from Majorca last evening. He had had horrible weather, with only two sunny days out of twelve.
