Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry for my recent silence. We are reaching the point where every day is insanely busy and at least 14 hours long. With under fifty days to go, the pressure is really building. It's going to be close right up to the end, so our work is even more important. We have all of our staff now, so it's a straight through sprint until the end. I'm learning the charms of managing four other people through this maze. At times it reminds me of teaching, which is both good and bad. Well, back to work now. Less than 1200 hours to go.

It's Time

The ridge line was covered in snow today and our numbers just got a lot bigger. Time is starting to get short and the feeling of things is changing. The pressure is getting upped, and I think people are ready. Everyone knows that this will be a fight right up to the end, so the feeling is "let's do this." My friend who's working back east said that he was bringing out his box of wine for nightly conference calls, so it must be time to get moving.
