I have an interesting variation on this. I currently live in the northeast BUT I'm in the midwest for work-related stuff. I was supposed to get back tonight, and after a bunch of cancellations and an airline switch, I'm scheduled to get in tomorrow night (hopefully things have cleared up by then!).
Waiting for me is an Empress Multidrive that arrived hours after I left. Aside from seeing my wife and kids, not being able to play with it is the thing that's KILLING me!
