Phenology Talkbacks, May 17 2022

By the Great Horns of the Owl, it's been a busy week. Spring is busting through the seams, and 11 student reports are hardly enough to contain it! This morning, those fickle technology gods passed over John (for once) and instead visited Heidi with a plague of network connectivity issues. A quick reboot seemed to solve the problem, and the show went on! John showed much more patience with Heidi's technical difficulties than he ever does with his own, but that's a topic for another day (and maybe a therapist). As always, we start off with the northern end of the state and work our way south: let's get to it!
