Today was our first official day of training. We spent the bulk of it watching videos on a variety of subjects. Holiday has a very extensive training program with excellent information. They have gotten everything down to a science with operational issues. We really like Paul and Rosemary, the managers here....they are great teachers. They are originally from Pittsburgh so native Pennsylvanians like us. We have another day of watching videos tomorrow and then on Tuesday we'll start learning the operational side of things.
It was so hot here yesterday and even worse today. High 90's and very high humidity. I think someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that spring comes in before summer. I think they skipped it altogether....It's only the beginning of May. Not the time to have temps in the 90's just yet. Right now....at 9:30 at night it's 85 degrees. How's that for hot ?!?! Yikes !
My daughter Becky flew to Nashville Saturday morning to visit with some friends from the Recording Academy office down there. She got there in time for all the serious flooding that has been taking place. A state of emergency has been declared. Opryland hotel was evacuated today. She said it is so bad down there....roads all around where she is staying have been closed. Poor kid can't even get out to sightsee.....many of the streets are under water and things are closed. She's not even sure if her flight will get out of there....all flights today were cancelled. :(
Tonight Linda's daughter Stephanie came over, after work, and they shot some pool after supper. Linda got her butt whooped so then the three of us sat down and played a game of scrabble. A good time...
