If there was ever a roller coaster year, 2011 was it; big highs and big lows. We began the year the same as last... in the wet. May, 2011 was a rainy cold, miserable month. We tried to get out and do some exploration, but alas it was too wet to even think about driving out most days. As it turned out , the rain wasn't completely bad. All the indoor time gave me the opportunity to finish a good deal of the interior finishes to our new building and prep lab. I wasn't able to get everything done as I liked, but the final result came together nicely.
