August 19th: Rain, Wind and Aphids

This morning, Team Echinacea was awakened by a text message from Stuart saying that we would be starting an hour later than usual. Then we were awakened 4 more times by texts from Danny. He wanted to tell us good morning and also that we would be starting an hour later. He also told us he was excited for the extra hour of sleep. Then finally, he apologized because none of those texts were actually meant for our group message.

It was raining really hard this morning, just like it has been for what seems like forever. Most people did computer work. Gina and I continued our statistical analysis on our aphid addition/exclusion data. The rain finally stopped around lunch time, so after lunch we were able to go out to the remnants and do demography.

We finished off the day by weeding the rest of the trefoil on the roadside near P1. Will discovered his love for the new tool called the garden knife. We saw a bald eagle while walking back to the Hjelm house at the end of the day and they told me I have to flog about it. So this flog post is dedicated to that bald eagle.
