Time Marker: Phone call from Boeing

This is actually being posted at 12:47 am on July 14th, but I thought it vital to mark in my journal when I got the call from tygerr and heard more about the state of the launch than the major news sources (CNN Headline News on in the break room at work) knew.

It'll be interesting to compare timestamps on when these things get released, y'know?
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?
