Work is Falling from the Sky

    It is a beautiful time of year here in central New York.  The weather is getting cooler and the leaves have turned from their summer green to vibrant shades of orange and red.  In the northernmost areas, the leaves are already falling.

    In contrast to the tranquility of this seasonal change is the feeling I have toward its outcome – raking leaves.  I hate it and I dread it.  Fallen leaves may seem harmless, but if left, they smother the grass and prevent sunlight from penetrating the grass during its fall growth season.

    The way that I get through the leaves is the same way I'm going to push through this year's fourth quarter rush.  For those of you who experience it, you know that there is a lot to accomplish at the end of the year in a time period shortened by holidays and office gatherings.

    On my own priority list I have thermal product evaluations to attend at customer sites, research paper deadlines approaching, internal thermal product testing to conduct, and industry conferences to attend. The only way to handle it is to do it a little at a time and stay on top of it.
