100 paleontologists from all over the western U.S. showed up as part of the Western Association of Vertebrate Paleontologists annual conference to help us break in our new projector, automated screen and audio system in the Great Room. Fingers crossed, everything working great so far. Beautiful day, 83 degrees at 11 a.m. and chuparosa, brittle bush, and fairy duster all in bloom. How can this still be winter?? Where are you, El Nino?
