Harvard Today: April 1, 2014

Happy Tuesday, Harvard! And happy April Fool’s Day!

Or not so happy, depending on who’s the better prankster—you or your roommates. To be honest, it feels like we’re all getting pranked with terrible weather, midterms on midterms, that How I Met Your Mother series finale last night, long-lasting cases of PSBD (post Spring Break depression...it’s a thing), and did I mention the terrible weather? But hey, you know what they say: April showers bring May flowers. And that’s something we can all look forward to. Hopefully.

IN THE ATMOSPHERE
If you can believe it, it’s actually forecasted to be sunny today! Literally, there’s a 0% chance of rain. Couple that with a high of 51 degrees, and you’ve got yourself a pretty great day. April Fools? We certainly hope not...
