The Other Shoe

I'm just about finished another project, giving a talk tomorrow, and cannot escape the awful feeling that something really, really bad is about to happen.

Part of it might be the leak in the roof (discovered at 11:17 pm last night). Damage has been contained, but it needs to get fixed. Add that to the fact that as of right now, I don't have a batter on deck.

Further add that no one is looking to do any extraneous work right now.

Things have been going well, which means we are headed toward the inevitable down cycle. These things are good because they keep us honest, relatively idiot-proof, and priorities in check.

They're bad because while they will end eventually, as does everything, we don't know how long we're in for.

Girding for weather ahead. Because there is. And we're in for it.
