Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain

I awoke to streaks of blue sky and to sun shining through the breaks in the clouds. But it didn't last, and soon the gloom and rain were back. The day got colder and wetter and wetter and colder. It was 60˚F at 10:50 a.m. At 5 p.m., it was only 49˚F. We are told we get sun tomorrow, after a foggy morning. It's been raining here since before Christmas. And it rained almost every day in December.

Whether or not we actually make it out into the field tomorrow will depend on the weather.

Today, we went to my mom's and washed clothes (and there was trip to Bass Pro Shops for tick repellent and to WalMart for socks). We'd not been to my mother's since the 11th. We got dinner from Milo's. I spent much of the day studying aerial photographs and reading about the Selma Group and Cretaceous mollusks.

Last night, we finished Mars. Very good.

Oh, and for my part, if people wanna do the Bird Box challenge, I say Netflix shouldn't fret over it. We call this natural selection. As of this morning, there are almost 7.7 billion humans on Earth. We can spare some of the dumber ones. (Also, awful, awful, stupid, sadistic movie.)
