November is upon us and I am not sure what happened to October.

 As we are putting away our ghost and goblin costumes (or in my case a Queen Bee costume) and attending playoff football games, we are looking ahead to the Holidays. For me it means I get to see my family who are scattered across 4 states, an immense amount of baking, and trying to get my teenagers to start telling me what they want for Christmas.

This year, Thanksgiving is at our home and we do not have to travel. For many, traveling for the holidays is a given whether you are going across town, across the state or beyond. The ritual of watching the weather and dodging deer all in anticipation of a huge meal and seeing family is only superceded by the ritual of watching the weather and looking for deer in anticipation of a years worth of venison in the freezer.

I would like to wish all of you the following:

  • Happy Halloween
  • Go (insert favorite football team here)!!!!
  • Be Careful Driving
  • Good Luck Hunting your Buck
  • and most of all Enjoy your Family!


Now for ASHRAE business.  I missed the October meeting but I am told we had a great turnout and presentation. I am looking forward to the November meeting regarding energy modeling. We have local engineers coming in to share their expertise, so please show your support by joining us the meeting on Nov.10.

The Winter Conference is in January and open for registration on line. Please take a minute to review all the conference has to offer. Attending the technical sessions is a great way to get the majority of your continuing education credits. The Chapter has funds set aside in the budget to reimburse members for some travel/hotel expenses. Funds are limited and will be reimbursed on a first come first serve basis. Please contact a board member for information.

I look forward to seeing you all at the chapter meetings.

Thank you.
