    Hello and Welcome to the Temporary Friday Afternoon Club

    Hello and welcome! It sure is nice having a back up FAC, don't you think?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Made this because last night, after optimizing the database, there was a little bit of database corruption that made the FAC inaccessible. That's fixed now, but I'll just leave this here for today before moving posts back into the normal FAC.

    Temporary Turn-Arounds. Yep, permanent.

    Temporary Detention Ponds. Yep, also permanent.

    Temporary parking surface. Permanent as hell.

    You forgot -

    Temporary portable signs.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see. Dust in the wind; all we are is dust in the wind.
