What's next

There is a major Job Fair scheduled for this area on Monday. Dozens of employers will be gathered in one place, taking résumés and conducting on-the-spot interviews. If this is like the last one I was at (fifteen years ago) there will be some goodies to be gotten, too. Too bad the local casket manufacturer closed down - last time, they were passing out casket-shaped keychains.

I'll be meeting a friend of mine there who got cut at the same time as me. We're trying to help each other cope with this situation. Being unemployed isn't as easy as it looks.

This is all assuming the Job Fair doesn't get cancelled. There's a bit of weather expected over the next 36 hours or so. Starting tonight we are forecast to get heavy rainfall which will continue through Sunday night. Overnight Sunday into Monday morning it is expected to turn into snow. How much snow is hard to say. Early estimates had it at up to 12 inches, but the latest reports are calling for one to three. That won't be much more than a nuisance, if it turns out to be true.

This weather is still putting a major crimp in my home improvement Must-Do-By-May-31 plans. Subfreezing temperatures and heavy rain are bad for both laying concrete and laying down paint. I sure hope the weather gets nice soon - I've got work to do before I go back to work!

I hope the weather starts to cooperate and that you have the best of luck finding a new employer at the Job Fair.
