Weather

Loj-

Showercap on the sun Friday and Saturday at the loj :/

Friday 74

Saturday 76

Sunday 83

Boston-

Friday 69

Saturday 73

Sunday 77

Sometimes there is smoke and darkness in the middle of the day

Blood rain CAN happen and it’s not actually blood but it is red (it’s a fungus) (is that better?)

Raining fish happens all the time, at least once a year and sometimes it rains frogs or octopi in China

Spider rain in Argentina and Australia and Brazil

Raining cats and dogs came about because in London they used to get caught in the gutters and die and fall out when it was raining?

Charlie is on trip grants and you can be too

We need trip grants committee people (especially who are here during the summer)

Undergrads can get funded to go on trips if they plan and propose it

Examples are dog sledding and hiking part of the Appalachian trail

Schedule for proposals on Nuhoc website under trips

More weather

It rained meat in Kentucky (pork or bear) but it was maybe vulture puke
