Harvard Today: February 25, 2014
It’s been a long and hard week so far...and unfortunately, it’s only Tuesday. It's hard to even believe that's possible. I guess it’s clear already: this week is going to be rough. At least it isn’t snowing again...for now.
IN THE ATMOSPHERE
Tomorrow’s high is a decent 31 degrees. There is an absolute zero percent chance of snow or rain, so take this opportunity to bust out the non-waterproof shoes and jacket, because who knows when you’ll get the chance again.
