Delay of the Last Mission of Endeavour

I was looking forward to witness the last mission of Endeavour today. Much as I wanted to go closer to Kennedy Space Center area, the thought of 750,000 expected crowd made me stepped back. I already set up my best spot in the place of our friends backyard by the lake here in Orlando. We still can see it as long as the sky stay clear. This week was stormy specially in the Southern part of the US. In fact the other day, Tornado touch down made a horrifying casualty in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia. See the weather yesterday in Florida (below picture) from NASA website.
Just few hours ago, NASA announced that there's a delay of the launch due to technical reasons, something about the heaters in the shuttle's auxiliary power unit . It will be re-scheduled to launch not later than Monday at 2:33 PM. I am hoping by then, everything will turn out alright.
