geese in the gusts
Thursday, October 17 2019
This morning on the drive to work, the sky was full of wild angry clouds that seemed to be whipped around by strong winds, though, initially at least, these winds didn't reach the ground. I saw a flock of geese heading southward, and they apparently kept encountering sudden downdrafts that would make a section of the flock appear to dive in unison. They'd quickly recover and soldier on, only to hit another patch of uncomfortable air. I don't think I've seen geese battling such irregular winds before.
Another big improvement to the reporting component was a tabbed navigation system similar to (but better than) the one I'd developed for the reporting system on the Mercy For Animals CRM.
It was raining again on the drive home from work, though it had largely stopped by the time I got home. This meant that I could go do more work on the stone wall. The recent rains had softened up the ground enough to let me extract a number of conveniently close-by rocks that had resisted my efforts in drier conditions.
This evening the old Mercy For Animals IT Department diaspora had another of its occasional videochat happy hours. There wasn't much new news. Cameron had recently run a whole marathon and is now using a dating app called Hinge (though his date tonight didn't work out), Dan is in the final month of his wife's pregnancy, and Allison is contemplating a possible move to Washington, DC, though this would require finally separating from her unhygenic boyfriend, Pickle Matt. "There are other pickles in the sea," I pointed out. "They might be smaller, but they're probably cleaner," she and Dan agreed.
