Proof of a Benevolent Research God

So... I need to run 4 different tests 6 times each, so I mark the snow sample holders how I want them, and put them into the cooler to chill before sample preparation, and look how they fit into the cooler:



Isn't that just awesome???

I think I need to go lie down.

Edited to add: Yay for Carl Hoffman, the father of Fairbanks Bluegrass!

Also, also:

NOAA sez:

...STRONG WEST COAST STORM TO BRING A VARIETY OF WINTER WEATHER TO THE INTERIOR...

A LOW PRESSURE CENTER LOCATED ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTH OF SHEMYA IN THE WESTERN ALEUTIANS IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY RAPIDLY INTO A STRONG WINTER STORM AS IT TRACKS NORTHEASTWARD TOWARDS THE ALASKA WEST COAST. THE STORM CENTER IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE IN THE SOUTHERN BERING SEA LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND MOVE TO JUST EAST OF ST LAWRENCE ISLAND BY SATURDAY EVENING.

STRONG SOUTHERLY CHINOOK WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP IN ALASKA RANGE PASSES EARLY SATURDAY AND CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY. WINDS GUSTING TO 75 MPH ARE EXPECTED IN THESE AREAS.

FARTHER TO THE WEST...SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 6 INCHES OR MORE WILL BE POSSIBLE SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY IN THE CENTRAL INTERIOR...UPPER KOYUKUK VALLEY...AND SOUTH FACING
SLOPES OF THE CENTRAL BROOKS RANGE....


Yay! Yay for warmer temps and snow!

Remember "Spider saved the Christmas"? One of your favorite book when you were a baby.

Drink and get enough sleep. Be safe.
