2012 was a GREAT year for me. I had a lot of fun, hiked a lot of mountains, made a lot of out of state trips with friends and family, had a better attitude, and work was good. If 2013 is better, I will be excited!!! Of course there are always low points, but overall it was a phenomenal year for me. I hope it was for everyone else, and same with 2013. Take care.

The last couple years weren't bad. It was 3-4 years ago that were frustrating as hell. If the water availability doesn't change soon here, my attitude may get bad again. By that, here is what I mean. In a climate like mine, where on the average we get 15"-16" of precip, and this year we only got 8", it is very difficult to get people to understand water rationing. With restrictions in place due to low amounts of water, that does not mean finding a way around the restrictions to keep grass green and lush. It means sucking it up, and understanding that we have limited water available, and accept the fact that our lawns will not be lush green. But..... that is for another thread. Merry New Year.

Gave my guys a few days around Christmas, and now it has rained for two days. I am BORED, and ready to get back at it.

For the new year we hired another Project manager, and I bought a new truck (f-350 crew cab long bed diesel). I also hope the new year brings a freaking flood along the highland lake chain so the yuppies will stop talking about crazy permanent water restrictions. My last hope is that some of the older irrigators that were the large companies in the area do better this year. Seems like they are having trouble adapting to the new age of tablets, scheduling software, smart phones, and are becoming obsolete bc they cannot stay profitable. Most of them are good guys, that do the best work in the area. I hate to see them fall to fast talking, iphone wielding, tablet in a man purse carrying "irrigators."
