Good and not as good 

Woo hoo. I got my first raise in 6 years or so. I really have not done anything different, but they reviewed ranges and paired me with the engineering manager. I am appreciative, but feel I  should be more excited. 

On the other hand a large project I am trying to get out of the starting blocks is in danger of stalling. I only slept about 3 hours Tuesday night, largely because I was fretting. But in true basic optimist fashion I spent yesterday trying to pull together information that could support  (or not) continuing forward at my pace for presentation at a meeting this afternoon. There is a regulatory deadline involved, but we only got one response to our request for consultants. So the question is whether they are the correct company. 

Enough about work. 

About the only snow left on our block is the reclining snowman. Temperatures are in the 40s and it is pouring.  Hard rain. 

Next natural phenomenon for the region should be flooding.  Melting snow and now an inch or two of rain. 

But as I sit in the car while my carpooler gets coffee I am reminded how much I like the sound of rain on the roof.
