    My Engineering buddies in New Mexico and Kansas have reported and the news is mixed. My buddy in Kansas indicates that he's really busy with public sector work but slow with private work. His outlook is neutral to up. A few States over, my New Mexico buddy is telling me that he's slow overall and his outlook is neutral to down.

    So updating my Economy and Engineering Work Poll we get:

    • NJ Engineer #1 - UP
    • NJ Engineer #2 - NEUTRAL
    • CA Engineer #1 - NEUTRAL
    • KS Engineer #1 - NEUTRAL
    • NM Engineer #1 - NEUTRAL
    • Me - UP

    It seems likely that NJ Engineer #1 and I are experiencing a "blip" in work right now but based on the NEUTRAL readings, its hard to tell if we are teetering on a recession or not.  Who knows but work might just pick up all of sudden for all of us, which is usually the case.  We're either overly busy or overly slow!
