It’s all fieldwork, all the time here. Tuesday I got some nasty sunburn on the tops of my knees from wearing shorts, and yesterday I think I almost died of hypothermia, despite wearing 5 layers and a wool hat. The sunburn of course then spoiled my hot shower whilst trying to warm up. Thanks, spring weather. Not sure what I’m going to plan on for today; how does one prepare to be struck by lightning during a frogstorm?

Spent today climbing over my dam, going through three layers of sunscreen and sweating through an almost 80 degree day.
Tomorrow I’m going up into the mountains with my snowshoes to monitor some ice problems on a much much different dam.
Hopefully I’m able to successfully switch modes and not show up in the snow with flip flops and a Hawaiian shirt.
My computer was acting funny at work. In the course of trying to figure out it’s problems, I discovered that my graphics driver hadn’t updated correctly in over a year. Only about 36 versions out of date. Might not solve my problems but, like I said, it can’t hurt anything.
This is the first time I’ve had to wear a jacket in three months!
