"But with four of them in the class, they turned into total jerks*!"

No good for the grad students who came to learn!
Umbrella unfurls and hood goes up as misty drizzle turns into real rain at mile 2. The W&OD pathway is virtually empty as we start at scientist-named Michael Faraday Court for a brisk out-and-back walk. Result: soggy socks, wet windbreakers, and wonderful conversation!
* "jerks" isn't quite as, uh, spicy as the actual word Mary uses. Trail talk!
