It was a long day at work today. Both by the clock and as the work progressed or as it turned out, didn’t. We are testing this week and really have acquired enough data to meet our minimum requirements, but once you start testing, inertia tends to take hold and it becomes hard to stop. I need more data! This is especially true, when you hit a road block, as we did today. One of our instruments was giving us bad data and not for the life of us could we figure out why. We eventually had to pack it in and move on. It made for a very frustrating day. I actually got to do some physical labor today and not just sit in front of a tube all day. We took the model apart and then put it back together again. It was such a long day that I had to beg off Jay’s invitation to spend the evening with them. We had a late dinner, but our numbers managed to swell to four at the table. The mountain came out today. Its sightings are always a rarity. I’ve only seen it three times over the years that I have visited Seattle and two of those times were this week, including today. It lifts one’s spirit to see something so majestic and to know that it is so far away. I went up to the eighth floor of my hotel and peered through a laundry room window to get this picture.
