Today has been a good day. I am currently sitting in a coffee shop, enjoying a wonderful cup of chocolate almond coffee, listening to one of my favorite symphonies, staring at my beautiful wife as she is masterfully completing a cross-sum sudoku puzzle that is above me. I am studying for a midterm in the philosophy of geography, and thinking that I may write my test essays in a blog for you all to read. Maybe not, maybe, we’ll see.
It is a windy day here, but pleasant, and the trees are beginning to show some color. I’ll take some pics and post at a later date. Don has read my thesis unbelievably, and I am sure he will have some challenging questions for me later. Don: beware, you will be in my domain asking questions about rivers….unlike global warming, where I am as much a spectator as you 😉
Speaking of which, I need to call my grandma and wish her a belated birthday, I hope it was enjoyable, maybe ribs at J.J Norths? Friday was an interesting day in Open Channel. We are learning about backwater curves, which I will not go into, just suffice it to say it is fun stuff. We went into the lab and ran the flume to study different curves, and how the water surface reacts to perturbations in the flow. Now the interesting part about all this, is that I have it lucky here. In Texas, we couldn’t just go into the lab next door to run a several thousand dollar flume at will. Plus, the curves we are studying were developed in the lab we were in, cool stuff.
Alright, that’s enough for now. I will think about posting some more later.
