Hoo boy has it been a Day. It started out with chaos
and confusion, because someone had the wrong schedule
out, and nobody noticed until it was time to have
people come in.

Chaos followed, in the form of phone goons lined up
with nowhere to go as the schedule error was fixed.

The day was random, long, and rather scary. I almost
cracked a few times.

Fortunately for me, everything calmed down by 5:30,
and I was able to snag my second break
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
