Out in the West Texas Town of El Paso

I probably won't fall in love with a Mexican girl.

I'll be heading down there today to give my 4th and final presentation about what we think the spring runoff season will look like. I gave the presentation last Wednesday for co-workers, kind of trial run. I then presented to the public on the next day. That had about 40 people in attendance. Then I gave it again yesterday to water managers from different agencies. Finally today I present to the southern irrigation districts. This is a bit of a shitshow since I rarely deal with these folks. There is a water manager down south that could probably do a much better job, but there is a pissing contest that has been going on for a few years as to which office makes the decisions. For years the El Paso office was given a lot of autonomy. Then the head manager down there started acting like he was in charge, so the manager up here decided to put him in his place by forcing decisions to come from this office. Like I said, a huge pissing contest. So I will take a day off to travel and do my little dog and pony show.
