    Yeah, looks like it. That's a little more hands-on attention than I'd like to have to give to this thing. Every time the temperature drops, or if it plans to snow overnight, I have to think about...

    I think it's reasonable for me to sit down and discuss their plans with them before they do any work tomorrow. They're coming early, between 7:30 and 8:00, so I'll get some questions ready tonight.
