After several days of questionable weather and a gray start, yesterday turned out nice in the afternoon. Now get ready for a repeat today, tomorrow, the day after, the day after, the da ... you get the picture. Yep. Another long, sunny, dry stretch coming up with temperatures improving a few ticks each day. But starting yesterday and today on the chilly side, coming in yesterday in the high 50s and today in the low 60s. Mid to upper 60s tomorrow.

The rain from Tropical Storm Nate on Oct. 9, made it impossible to perform our annual fall fertilizer and weed control application on that day. The application is rescheduled for today. Since the application could not be performed when there were no scheduled classes, it will be modified from the original posting. The application in the common areas and around buildings will consist only of fertilizer. There will not be any weed control applied around buildings or in common areas. Weed control applications will only take place on and adjacent to our athletic fields. The athletic fields should be completed early in the morning and can be accessed as soon as they are dry. The common areas can be accessed at any time.  The entire campus-wide treatment should be completed by 11 a.m.
