So Long, August

'Twas a good month, but holy cow was it busy. We finished the month with a bang at work, accepting nearly a quarter-million in grants and sending out proposals for more than $100k. This three-day weekend is much needed; I haven't had a day off (excepting weekends) in a very long time.

But workload aside, campus is abuzz right now with the arrival of the freshmen next week (some were briefly on campus a couple days ago) and of the new faculty this week. The mood is a happy one, and it's fun to be part of it.

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
