“Dear Santa,
Overall, 2015 has been pretty good to the glass industry. All of us are busy, wishing we could find a calendar that would allow us to sneak a couple extra days into every week, or smoosh another week into every month. It seems, all of a sudden, the pent-up backlog from the downturn years was cut loose in the marketplace, and everybody’s scrambling to get their material delivered per schedule. Such a problem, right? It is a blessing, no doubt. If you have anything to suggest how we can stretch these good times out a bit, it would be most welcome.”—Chuck Knickerbocker
