    Some rain today courtesy of Michael. Supposed to clear out by lunch and be sunny with highs in the low 70s and lows in the upper 40s for about a week. Seasonal trails open in Pisgah on Sunday so a ride might be had.

    And they did *everything* to ensure success prior to launch.



    Morning. WFH to deal with inspection of new heating apparatus which is not happening because the contractor cancelled it in the last minute because of his family emergency. Heating works but I cannot call the gas company about heating rate reduction (30% cheaper) until the work is officially finished. Next attempt - Monday. In the mean time - work, bikes, windows, yard.

    Good Morning!!

    The rainstorm gonna rainstorm. They heard we like rain, so they decided to rain on our storm so we can be wet while it rains.

    We had an event scheduled with the 3M graphics training team inside their cool mobile wrap studio, but they cancelled today...because, rain. :homer:

    Heading out later (because rain doesn't melt me) to meet a customer who is opening a Jeep dealership and has a ton of graphics to get installed inside - which is awesome, because there's a good BBQ joint over in Durham that I haven't been to in awhile that I can hit on the way out.

    Y'all be good to each other while I'm gone.

    I saw Hans in the canyon this morning on the way down (Hans is our nickname for this nut who skate skis up the mountain a few mornings a week). It looked like he was trying to hitch a ride but his arm was just outstretched resting on his ski pole. It was still kinda slushy so I figure he wanted to bail & is hitching a ride. He wasnt. He was just resting but it looked like he was hitching. Chatted for a minute. Happy dude. He was having fucking fun lol

    Probably.

    :mad:

    Seriously, though - it just took almost 30 minutes after a fresh reboot to get Outlook, Skype, and CA-PAM apps to a point that I could use them for work.

    30 fucking minutes...

    Piece of shit. :rant:

    All my marble for the kitchen countertops and backsplash arrived today. First the installer forgot to install the sink and then called me and told me the sink did not fit and I then had to remind them it was and undermounted sink. Then there was a huge amount of blemishes across the large backsplash by the cooktop. God damnit I am getting tire of the renovation project.

    Next week it water heater and decalcification install it will be fun to learn what will go wrong with that :-)
