Wet wet wet. Southern Illinois is wet today and has been either dark or wet (or both) for most of this week -- very different from the sky in the photo above, from March 5th. This weather makes it hard to want to do anything but drink coffee and read. Fortunately, the folks at Heartland News are predicting nice weather for tomorrow -- then rain again after that. Some respite from the clouds will be nice, even if only for a day. I'm sure this rain will pay off, though. You can begin to see the buds of trees trying to push their way out, and there are some blossoms at the university already!
