I've heard that at least the southern parts of the state were going to start getting some tropical air moving back in, but no idea if that's actually happened.

Hey Jerry, ever get people at the college who stuff 20 pounds of junk in a 10 pound office? You can't even see the piano, let alone tune it? Had one of those today. Left a note on the desk "Are you using the piano" and left it at that!

Oh yeah! We had this one teacher, she's gone now, I kid you not, it would take you 20 minutes to remove all of the books and other junk she had piled on top of her grand piano just to tune it. I always requested she remove it. About 30 % of the time she did. About 30 % of the time, she got her piano tuned too.

Oh man. I have customers remove their stuff from the piano, especially the expensive looking items. Had one drop one once. I shouldn't have but, I giggled and said, PHEW glad that was you and not me! They looked at me funny and then started to chuckle a little bit themselves saying, yeah, that would have cost you a fortune!
