You're not really here Christmas Eve, are you?

You aren't really looking at Unit 9 News on Christmas Eve, are you?

Go check NORAD's Santa tracking instead. Sheesh.

Looks like the state veterinarian, and at least one press person, were also at work Christmas Eve:

California State Veterinarian Dr. Richard Breitmeyer has granted a 24-hour permit waiving all brand inspection and health requirements for nine reindeer slated to visit California on the evening of December 24 and the in early morning hours of December 25.
Whew. Some of us never even thought about the health and regulatory implications of those reindeer flitting hither and yon on Christmas Eve. Thank goodness Dr. Breitmeyer is on top of things.

Unit 9 people *often* work holidays, nights, and weekends, contrary to whatever their bosses may like to believe!

Merry Christmas to all!
