Philosophical after the first day's launch attempt

Oh well, the Sun sets on an earthbound New Horizons at least one more time. The first day's launch attempt was a strange experience in retrospect.

Well, it was a nail-biting morning and too bad that New Horizons didn't go but these things happen pretty frequently.

What will happen just after New Horizons' launch

I'm at home on a Sunday morning, five days before leaving for the Cape (assuming the current launch schedule, with the first launch opportunity on January 17th, continues to hold).
