Yesterday Humboldt County welcomed me with its amazing weather--drizzle and rain all day long. There were some tentative plans to go camping that got called off because of this excessive precipitation, but it did give us plenty of time to run errands and grocery shop in Eureka. On our way to WinCo Michael took a wrong turn that routed us to the south end of Eureka (not quite where we were aiming for), but it was a great scenic detour to see some farms.
Today I went to campus to get things sorted out for the class that I will be the TA for. Lectures will be online from WSU, and lab will be in person here in Arcata. There have been a lot of difficulties getting the Humboldt students access into the WSU system, but hopefully we've gotten closer to solving those problems. Everyone I met today in my quest to fill out paperwork and get myself established was very excited to get this project up and running, though they all acknowledge that it's a very novel situation and may be quite difficult. But I'm prepared for that! I now have a copier code, and keys to my office, and lab scheduled for Tuesday afternoon!
