Stormy weather

Last night, severe thunderstorms on the South Side took out several campus trees, and the power in the admissions office. Students are surveying the damage as they walk to class on this deceptively sunny, warm day. So, some of our servers are down, and some images on the website may not be working. Austin and I are at the library, checking email and enjoying the working lights. Pictures to follow.
