Last night the weather channel assured me that it would be sunny with thunderstorms in the early evening. Apparently that’s weatherman code for “quarter inch hail by noon time”. I, of course, parked downtown and saw the clouds arriving. Luckily I work with the greatest people on earth, one of whom drove me to my car to close the sunroof, and the car suffered only mild water damage. After that I used the parking garage, so when I got out I didn’t have to schlep the fifteen minutes across campus.
