It has been the longest and busiest week yet since I last posted a report. Many big time-takers but not too much in the way of news-makers since my last bulletin. Spent a weekend off campus, which was great, but life on campus has been busy, bottom line. Very much looking forward to Spring Break, which lurks just two weeks away.

During our week, no day looms larger than Thursday and it's 5 hours of class. This rainy Thursday follows a late night, thanks to a 3-2 volleyabll victory over SUNY Purchase upstate. However, we can look forward to another weekend of NCAA tourney action (and Heat Balance) to drown our sorrows.

It was a long one here at Webb - 5 hours of classes to drown out the opening day of NCAA Tournament time. By the time the carnage had ended, the Big 10 had lost 3 teams and Rowen had outlined a weekend of heat balance. Just one more day until the weekend!

It wasn't earth-shattering, but a shift of gears to talk yachts was a welcome change this morning. Now, an afternoon on the clock getting paid to do some tank testing should round out what has been a pretty avant-garde day for Webb.

Thesis topics and offshore oil drilling ruled the day. Then volleyball practice, some homework, and anticipation of more work to come as the projects and lab reports stack up took care of the evening. Tomorrow will be a day of special interest as we have a special guest lecture about yachts for our NA 6 class.

Mondays are great. An hour of class, an hour of lab, an hour of class, and thanks for coming. Now I've got an afternoon full of administrative this and recruiter that and tonight is volleyball game #3. The days are just packed.
BTW: For those of you who haven't seen The Patriot, I highly recommend it. Although it is somewhat violent, it will make you so proud of your country you'll want to puke.

With actual warm bodies across the net, volleyball gets a whole lot harder, Confuscious say. Keeping that in mind, don't be too disappointed in Team Webb's 1-3 loss to John Jay on Saturday. After the game it was off to the President's home for pizza and dessert - friends of the program, Webb Institute style.

Week 2 of this semester is in the books - more snow than we've seen previously and an inexplicable lack of both excitement and work. Another volleyball game is on tap for Saturday, but other than that the weekend is wide open. Perhaps a Sunday trip to the city? Only time will tell.

Team Webb's first volleyball victory tonight! It was a fairly unconvincing forfeit over the absent SUNY Purchase squad. But, a W is a W, right? The snow that has been the focus of our lives lately has largely melted, so life here on the island is more or less back to normal. School rolls on, too - NA 6 design project and ME 5 heat balance are on the table, so our lives are busy once again.

What a great weekend on the hill! Two fantastic days with super snow under sunny skies. Toss in short lift lines and plenty of good terrain and that spells a really good time. This week begins with all of the Northeast anticipating a 50-year snowstorm. Webb, however, didn't cancel classes ahead of time like New York City Public Schools. Rats.

Webb awoke this morning to a layer of fluffy white snow tinting the world bright white. Could a better omen have arrived overnight for the ski-trippers who depart at 1500 for Killington? I think not. Looks to be a great trip - HoooWAH!
