    Well, I spoke a bit too soon. I met up with some of the folks involved and we all agreed I should still show up and interrupt the meetings to force the discussions. In a Lyft on my way to do that now.

    Wow, to say that the VP I wanted to really confront wasn't happy to see me was a bit of an understatement. Wouldn't even look at me.

    I showed up where the meetings were taking place but they had some external consultant in for the first 2 hours doing HR stuff so I'm hanging out at Starbucks waiting to head back in but he did agree to put me on the agenda. I'm getting texts from folks in the room that things are good and on track.

    Well, it all worked out. After seeing the VP in the morning and by the time I got on the agenda, he had come around and was glad I was there to push the discussion that needs to happen. All went well and I was asked to stay for the rest of the meeting for other topics since my contribution was so well received.

    ie: *phew*, it was worth it, not a Cunt Like Move.

    Good job!

    When I recently resigned, the director dodged me (for a week) and wouldn't even say goodbye. It got to the point that he'd see me coming and suddenly change direction. Good riddance.

    Actually just got a text from the VP thanking me for coming.

    Trust your gut, HairyAss.

    Exact same thing happened to me last week. Quit my job of 13 years and my manager never even made eye contact with me, let alone thanked me or shook my hand.

    It’s weird how some managers act when you decide to leave. I had to fly out to Portland, OR from Halifax for one job I’d been at for about 6 years. My boss basically ignored me while I was there and then left 2 days before my last day without even really saying goodbye.

    I'd rather get a burger on any of the other 51 weeks of the year and avoid the crowds :o

    I did 3 burgers in Fredericton...crowds weren't much of an issue, but plowing down burgers a few times a week seems like a bad idea. Buddy of mine did 12 of them in 3 weeks...none of them were small burgers lol.

    Don't go on the weekend then...

    Been going out of a few with co-workers (work downtown) and none of the places we've gone have been busy at noon.

    I think the longest I waited was maybe 10-15 minutes in line. Darrell's was really quick with getting the burger out. The British Bulldog Gastropub in Cole Harbour was only like a 10 minute wait in line, but the food took a while. The place was packed. Clay West Bar & Grill we were right in!

    Special weather statement in effect for:
    • Halifax Metro and Halifax County West
    Significant snowfall to affect portions of the province on Monday and Monday night.

    A low pressure system from the Great Lakes on Monday will track southeastward to lie south of Nova Scotia by Tuesday morning. Snow is expected to develop over western Nova Scotia Monday morning and slowly progress eastward to reach eastern regions that evening. Southwestern regions may see a change over to pellets or freezing rain and then to rain briefly before precipitation ends Tuesday morning.

    Total snowfall amounts exceeding 15 cm are possible. Strong southeasterly winds could also reduce visibilities in blowing snow Monday afternoon and evening.

    Travel may become difficult due to rapidly accumulating snow and reduced visibility.

    Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NSstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NSStorm.

    3:39 PM ADT Sunday 07 April 2019: SNOWFALL WARNING in effect for Halifax Metro and Halifax County West
    [​IMG]
    Snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.

    A spring storm will see a return of winter weather for a majority of mainland Nova Scotia Monday and Monday night.

    Snow will begin Monday morning over southwestern Nova Scotia and spread eastward throughout the day reaching northern parts of the province Monday evening. Over southwestern Nova Scotia the snow will changeover to ice pellets and freezing rain before tapering off to showers Tuesday morning. For Halifax, the valley and south shore areas the precipitation will remain as snow throughout event with the possibility of ice pellets developing overnight Monday night. Snowfall amounts of 15 cm are expected by Tuesday morning.

    Conditions will improve on Tuesday with the snow tapering off due to the departure of the storm.

    Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.

    Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.

    Cool. I just got into making shooting, editing, and making public legal education videos for work. I'm pretty new at it, but really find After Effects and Premiere really interesting.

    Sweet. AE can be a beast to get into but a lot of fun. Look into Motion Graphics Templates if what you mostly want titles / etc out of AE - lots of nice pre-made stuff available for sale on things like Adobe Stock.

    Yeah, I live on MotionArray.com. I love the things you can do with templates. I am trying to convince management to get a Stock account - it's a total pain in the ass to find the exact free stock commons images you need sometimes to convey something. Music's worked out pretty good though - there's a good selection on MotionArray.
