As Hurricane Matthew makes its way north, Miami is living in a state of limbo: Will school be canceled? Will you have to go to work Thursday? Should we all just pack ourselves into our cars and drive to Georgia?

The same goes for most events scheduled for later this week and the weekend: Organizers of the biggest gatherings have told New Times that most planned activities are still, well, planned — with changes and cancellations to be determined as the storm approaches.
