2016 Monthly Status Update: August

smart-grid-update-1312pg

August is over, I can hardly believe it. Before you know it will be the dreaded tax season again. I’m gearing up for one of my busier times of the year anyways since I audit towns, which for me usually means less reading. I am hoping to at least keep it closer to even this year since I haven’t been reading much lately to begin with, I’ve been so busy there’s hardly been time. August overall was a good month though, I feel like I got a lot done and I had a lot of fun this month!
