day 1 : snow past your knees.
cross-country skied to pyramid point.

day 3 : arrived back in the STL to temps in the 50s.
this is crazy-making.

I love hand-made gifts! Thanks, E!
(p.s.--you can't really see it in this pic, but I am holding a clipboard and ruler in one hand--all fieldwork style-- and 2 (two!!) purses in the other hand. This woman knows me well...)
Current contents of my purse:
- Tylenol sinus
- 5days-to-lift-off Zpack of burly antibiotics
- Sinus Rinse nasal irrigation bottle (free from the clinic!)
- hot toddy. kidding, that's at home.
Current contents of my brain:
- lots of arcane facts about detecting vegetation with satellites
- things about radars
- the macroecology of Australian frogs
- graphs and charts and power point presentation slides

Ah, good times.
