Hello, Harvard! It is Wednesday and although it snowed on Monday, the sun will be mostly smiling down on us today here in post-Ice Age Cambridge. Today, Drew Faust will announce the suspension of reading period for classified unknown reasons. President Obama’s daughter has also stated that she will be attending Yale University. Also, Kanye West will be invited to attend Battle for Yardfest. Anyways, have a fun April Fool’s today, Harvard – have some hearty laughs today!

In the Atmosphere

Today will be around 45 degrees and a mostly sunny day. That’s right, the sun will be making its presence felt, so get out of Lamont and enjoy it while you can. 0% chance of precipitation is also an added bonus. Enjoy it for today, because tomorrow and Friday will not be as sunny.
