The Strang Institute didn’t escape today’s snowfall that hit the Midwest U.S. (somebody — not saying who — forgot to turn on the Anti-Climate Electro-Bubble). Everyone was pretty crabby when they showed up for work and the Institute garden, where we usually eat lunch, wasn’t the balmy seventy-six degrees it normally is. I thought it looked nice, but then I didn’t have to shovel.

Here’s a view from the side entrance. It’s normally green all year round on this side of the fence.

This is Bijou, the Institute mascot, braving the weather. The sun peeked out for a bit and the two of us had a romp in the snow.
