Sorry I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. I was preoccupied with something. And the day didn't really lend itself to posting much. It's funny how that works — some days it's easy to post a ton, some days it's impossible to get one post up. Generally, if there's a lot of side tracking and not as much direct testimony, it's easier to post, but I also often have to work on other things while I'm here since it takes up so much time, so that gets in the way as well. And also, sometimes I just don't feel like writing any more than I already am. This stuff gets TIRING!
Anyways, yesterday's testimony was pretty intense. Lot of details on the electric department, lots of details on the PILOT agreement. My stories should be posted online soon, if they aren't already.
This morning we're starting off with cross-examination of Roger Klemens on his supplemental pre-file testimony about the amphibians he believes might be on the site after he surveyed the land around it in April. It was put off because the document was submitted right before he testified, so O'Connell wanted people to have time to look it over.
It's interesting going back to the environmental issues after a week of testimony about the financial issues. A whole different group of people is here today — several people from Adirondack Wild and Protect.
Also, a quick amuzing anecdote: Judge O'Connell takes roll every morning to see who is at the session for the day. This morning when he called out "Protect the Adirondacks," Dan Plumley started listing himself and Dave Gibson. Then he stopped in the middle and said, "Oh," and snickered. The rest of the room had a good chuckle, too. Both men used to be part of Protect but are now representing their new group, Adirondack Wild. Now I don't feel so bad about mixing the groups up myself here and there!
