State of Flux

There are a lot of changes going on at work, some good, and some not-so-good. Since our career field is combining with liquid fuels, we've been integrating our management. It's definitely a time of growing pains, but I think, in the long run, things will be much better. Everyone is still way behind in our training, but that's really the least of our worries.
The long-term plan is for my shop to move to the other side of the flightline. We're currently housed in a very old building that sits at the start of the running path. We like it because we're away from the rest of the squadron, and nobody every comes over to bother us. But apparently, certain people can't leave well enough alone, and they want to move us into a big garage. It has no windows, no utilities installed, and is currently being used for storage by the power production shop. We've told the bosses that if they want to move us over there, they'll have to fix it up nicer than our current shop. So far, they say okay, but we'll see what happens when the time comes for them to spend some money.
Also in my shop, we've been trying to make things easier for weekend duty. The idea is to keep us from having to constantly turn wells on and off, thus prolonging their use. Our Italians changed a lot of stuff around this week, and since I'm working this weekend, I'm kinda the guinea pig. Luckily, things seem to have gone off without a hitch. Of course, the second I publish this post, I'm going to get a call saying the fire department is flooding or there's no water in the dorms or something.
