Abbot and Costello

Forgot to mention that at the meeting yesterday with the engineers that we slipped into a little bit of the famous Abbot and Costello routine "Who's on first" regarding lighting. Apparently there is a new energy czar (engineers' words, not mine) that has mandated less power be used in Durham commercial settings, but he doesn't take into account what the Electrical inspector requires, who doesn't take into account what the health department requires, which doesn't take into account what the energy czar requires....etc. These changes all took effect on June 1st, so we are apparently one of the first to have to navigate this problem.

Kinda funny until you realize this could potentially hold up the project if you don't get it right. Hopefully we got it right.
