When there's nothing else to talk about, talk about the weather
Ernesto is scheduled to blow through here tomorrow. We aren't especially worried. It's more an inconvenience than a threat. The thing that sucks the most is that where I work we were supposed to have this coming Friday off, but since we're not going to be able to work tomorrow, we're going to have to work Friday instead, as a makeup day. It sucks when your employer can shuffle your days off so that you have the crappiest ones off and have to work on the nice ones. But there you have it. It's a paycheck. And the fact is that we're way behind our factory schedule (due to strong demand for our products), and it's probably true that we can't afford to miss a day of production. Not for something trivial like a tropical storm. Ah, the price of success.
