Y2K plus 10


.
December 31, 1999, it is hard to believe a decade has passed since then. It all seems like such a short time ago. New Year’s Eve spent at work, safeguarding the potable water and wastewater systems, waiting to see if the computers of the world would cause a sociological meltdown at the stroke of midnight, contingency plans in place for potential equipment failures, anticipating possible acts of terrorism or vandalism. The world was on edge.

My thoughts exactly. None of us was allowed to be out of town and we were all staged and scheduled for the transition into the 2000's. The good news is that nothing interesting happened. It's hard to believe that ten years has passed.

Happy New Year to all!
