Though I only officially came on board with Volano Solutions this past Monday, I’ve had the pleasure of spending the last three weeks here in the Volano compound. I couldn’t be happier to be part of such a great team; everyone here is tack sharp, in wit and knowledge, and has made me feel welcome right from the beginning. I’ve finally found the place for which I’ve been searching so many years!
However, I must apologize for the unusually poor weather over the past 3 weeks. You see, the last time I came from Florida to Omaha was in 2009, when my presence triggered the 14th-snowiest season on record. Needless to say, I was not at all surprised when my first night of 2013 here in the Big O yielded (what seemed to me) about an inch of snow less than three weeks ago.
For I am the harbinger of long, cold, and bitter winters.
(I’m also a staunch supporter of the Oxford comma!)
So while I bring with me simply the worst winters you’ll ever have to endure, I hope you keep in mind that I really like being here. After all, what’s a little frostbite when compared to someone else’s happiness?

Several years ago, I was working on a product that required some attention from the software product teams. This happens to all software over time because a user’s needs change, features need to be added, and bugs happen (naturally). The undertaking was large enough, so our team agreed it would be ideal to talk with […]
