Just saw the tentative schedule. It looks more like it's going to be a five week block. As I said though, they're so critically understaffed that if ANYONE leaves the team it could cause problems.
@ grim, down here in the o-hizzle it hasn't been unseasonably warm too much. DEFINITELY warmer than usual and barely any snow, but not really unwintery. Also I'm in the Columbus microclimate which is a solid zone 6, occasionally pushing 7. They got cryptomerias and cunninghamias and sciadopityses all up in this bitch.
... Granted, when I was down near Cincinnati a week ago, the car thermometer thing was reading 77F, although that might've been from car exhaust because ENDLESS FUCKING TRAFFIC JAM.
