Where's Coyote?

As most of you may know, our company privately operates public parks.  Just before Memorial Day, our largest contract (which covers a lot of our overhead) was shut down by a fire in the Sedona area.  Since that time, our landlord the US Forest Service has announced it is going to keep all of these locations closed indefinitely out of fear of flash flooding (fire-damaged hillsides create a lot more runoff in eve light rain due to loss of ground cover and chemical changes in the soil that make it less permeable).  I think they are over-reacting, but it is not my decision to make.

The result of this is I have been in total operational scrambling mode and may remain so for a while, reducing the amount of blogging I do.

    wow, talk about a black swan. Good luck buddy.

    We read about that fire, but it was impossible to figure out where it was in Oak Creek canyon and how much damage it really did. Seems like it did quite a bit, then.

    I understand you have a business and all, but you *and* Ken White taking a hiatus is a bit much to bear!

    Seriously, though, good luck in the cleanup.
