I miss sleep. It's the second day of fieldwork, but it feels like a reenactment of orientation week (read trying to sleep every chance I get), but I'm sure I'll be able to catch up sometime. Other than that, it's been cool, except we really haven't started the fieldwork at all yet. Right now, we have 18 seismometers sitting in a basement picking up the music and dancing that is happening next door. (I have no idea what's going on there, but a lot of violin and cheering, it sounds pretty exciting). We're testing all of the instruments that IRIS sent us. So far, I think everything is looking alright. We did have one seismograph that doesn't work because the pins in a port are bent and are looking unfixable. Also, we did not recieve any mounting brackets for the solar panels, but we sent some of the team to the store to come up with something to get around that problem. We may start our first installation later this afternoon, just digging a hole and laying concrete. I would be overjoyed to get a nap in sometime before then, it would improve my enjoyment of everything significantly.
a good haiku came to mind
