The Sky is Falling

Well, maybe not the sky. With all the excitement of my new blog design, I forgot to blog about the little mishap here at work yesterday. Seems that a section of the ceiling over the bookstacks in the corner came tumbling down and made quite a mess. A couple of the maintenance guys and the building manager think a combination of vibrations (mostly from the heavy truck traffic on the street), drying out of the plaster, and general age of the building (it's well over a hundred years old) combined for the collapse. At least it happened early enough so no one was in the area and therefore, no one was hurt by dropping plaster.

It's been that kind of summer. Just enough crap to remind us to appreciate the good when it's here.
