GQ w/ Kyle Martin '12, best a capella performance of the day?

I’m never trusting forecasts again.

The weather today was cool, cloudy, and pleasant when I awoke at 6:30 AM. At 7:30, I saw my first snow of the year, and promptly expected things to go downhill from there.

They did not.

  • By 10:30, there were bits of blue against the horizon; the snowflakes had long since vanished.
  • By 11:30, clouds and clear skies were interspersed.
  • At 12:30, I had to put on my sunglasses in advance of the Stone Hill trip; students were lounging on Paresky lawn, eating lunch and enjoying each other.
  • The weather at 2:00 on Stone Hill was a wonderful backdrop for the 8 groups who sang; I’m told the seniors who ventured out to Stony Ledge instead had the most beautiful weather they can remember.
  • At 4:47 as I write this, there is not a cloud to be seen in the sky.

You can see some low-res Stone Hill photos from Professor Frank Morgan here.

Without a doubt, today’s weather was the best yet in October. I didn’t need anything more than a long-sleeved shirt, and Mountain Day was a RESOUNDING SUCCESS.
