This message is largely a follow-up to what I posted last October 27. First, temperatures are more normal, especially since a warm front came in early this week. Second, I am finally seeing the kind of fall color I missed last time; better late than never.
Since Tuesday we have gotten just over half an inch of rain, thanks to the warm front. Now a cold front is approaching from the west, and the weatherman is predicting severe storms will arrive tonight at 8 PM. We’re also getting high winds, in the 20-30 MPH range. Some central Kentucky communities have called for Halloween to be postponed, so kids can go trick-or-treating when the weather is more favorable. So far I haven’t heard of any postponement in Lexington, though; storms are appropriate in horror movies, anyway.
On the job hunt, I have gotten an astonishing number of e-mails and phone calls about a temporary job in Austin, TX, which I assume are all about the same job. They peaked yesterday, and I was also contacted about another job in Columbus, OH. The part I found odd was that every one of those recruiters was a pushy guy of Indian ancestry; why are they the folks contacting me? Then this morning I got an e-mail announcing the exact same job that I had interviewed for, four weeks ago. Needless to say, I applied for the job again, but I don’t know which of the following happened:
1. It’s the same old job, the e-mail was sent in error.
2. The company decided to hire for more positions.
3. The first person hired didn’t work out; he might not have shown up on the first day.
Any guesses as to which case it was?
