It’s amazing how disruptive the holiday season can feel. It feels like it is difficult to get work done with coworkers taking vacation, traveling to see family, and prepping for events.  I was tasked with cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving this year and immediately regretted my decisions on a last minute brine.  The internet suggested it was easy and would make the turkey taste better.  Of course the website was right and the bird was delicious, but it didn’t prevent the 24 hours of worry until I cut into it.

But even after all of the worry, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have mattered if the food was bad because I got to sit down to a meal with family, and I am thankful for that.

This rolls us into our December meeting where we spend a little more time than normal sharing drinks and conversation before we get to the presentation.  Cameron Klein has invited back Dan Dettmers, who I’m sure will provide a presentation no one will want to miss.

We will also be featuring Research Promotion at this meeting and honoring last year’s donors and discussing our upcoming goals for the year.  Alex Bakel has been hard at work coming up with raffle prizes and all of your donations will go toward supporting our RP goal for the year.  I know I have said it before, but the Madison ASHRAE Chapter gets more out of research promotion and it is well worth donating.

Happy Holidays
