snow, and other random thoughts

It snowed today. It didn't stick, and I'm not sure it snowed lower in the valley, but it did snow up at the U, where I work. Here are some pictures (sorry, taken w/my cell phone so not the best quality!):

Here's the view from the courtyard I can see out the window by my bench in the lab:

Laboratory humor - the temperature control in the various buildings is, well, primitive at best. They are old (40-50 yr?) and university budgets are not what they used to be. Anyway, someone in the microscopy core had a little fun mocking the extremes in the hallway and various microscope rooms. Actually, it's not much of an exaggeration, come to think of it. Enjoy!

And finally, while the weather leaves a bit to be desired here, it IS very beautiful. This photo was taken on Saturday when I was timing our club race at Daybreak, in South Jordan.

At Bradley, the rooms vary wildly; some are icebox chilly; others are sauna like. This past semester, I alternated between shivering and roasting.

PS: no snow here, but it was in the 30's and windy.

Heal up!
