Mountaineering

(no subject)

I worked a total of six and a half hours at the client site today. Five of the hours were between 8:45 pm and 1:45 am. I think the client is pretty stoked that I'm happy to work nights at my regular rate so that his factory's productivity is not affected by my work.

EMS

Listening to the state police scanner; they reported a 911 hangup in one of my towns. The dispatcher called back and got voice mail.

That's often a bad sign.

The police dispatched a trooper to go up there. The trooper was pretty far away; it took him about a half hour to get there.

I anxiously waited for him to get there; if it was a bad scene, I'd have to go.

Finally the trooper got on scene. A young girl, the daughter of the homeowner had called 911.
