    If you’re a Goob, it means you get a paid vacation at taxpayer expense. If you’re a contractor, you get a paid vacation out of your leave. And if you don’t have the accumulated leave, well, it means Leave Without Pay.

    Been there and done that.

    BTW, Nice sunrise/sunset pic.

      It’s barely rained in about a month. I don’t know of any RA issues that have affected water levels.
