Right across the street from my office building. I could see the smoke over on 8th Avenue. Our HR manager and CEO made the executive decision to close the office and have everyone evacuate. I hope everyone is alright.
We have not had much luck in this office location. In the last 2 years, we have had to evacuate 2-3 times for fire-related reasons, and another time due to a blackout in the building. (I’m not counting the blackout of ’03 in this total.) Time to move back to Flatiron, methinks?
On the running front…
Nice evening last nite, got in 2 lower loops-pretty much the safest part of the park after dark since there are usually a lot of people around. They’re already starting to set up the marathon finish line and all that jazz. And being a Tuesday nite was packed-with all the groups out in full force last nite (and blocking the rec lane…grrrrr. I almost got hit by bikes several times due to having to run on the main park drive-and i was wearing light-colored clothing!! ok rant over.)
tonite’s a going-away party for another teammate of mine…damn, they’re all dropping like flies.
Now the forecast for Sunday says a high of 71. i think it was a blessing in disguise that I deferred.
