For newbies, thirteen new permits at the end of the week is huge. Normally I can count on about six to eight new permits on a given day. When one hits double digits, it's a pretty big day, but thirteen permits on a Thursday is huge. If this trend were to continue, it would put us well over 2,000 new permits this calendar year. Right now, we are on track for 1,914 new permits for calendar year 2011.
