There's snow and subzero temperatures in the forecast, but not today. Today was warm and sunny, the calm before the storm.
I spent a couple hours with Olive. We did a little groundwork, practiced riding in a group and went for a short off-property walk. It was a pleasant, low key kind of morning, the calm before the storm.
The rest of the day has been spent getting ready for NaMoPaiMo. I have a really ambitious painting plan for my pony, so I want to be able to start right away. Fortunately, he's this close to being done. At this point, I'm mostly picking nits, the calm before the storm.
I'm also spent some time on the adminstrative side of the event. I've talked to Ryan and the rest of the staff about what we need to do tomorrow, saved and edited a multitude of entrant photos and refreshed the NaMoPaiMo Live Stats page at least a dozen times, the calm before the storm.
There's no telling what tomorrow bring, but today has been warm, quiet and productive. The calm before the storm.
