Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 5:47 am: Continuing march to graduation

Maybe it's just that they are more aware, what with all the photo taking and discussion of AM observations. But the Dawn Joggers think that it's been a particularly long build up to end of the year/graduation time on the Stanford campus this year.
This morning they saw that the portable storage containers had started to arrive near the Governor's Corners dorm area. Each will get a student's name attached to it, and some will reappear next September. Note on Lake Lagunita conditions: it's continuing to fill, and the frogs are still hopping about. The DJs conferred with Judy, and all agree that they don't ever remember such a long "frog season."

hiya, been reading Chris' blog for a while and was pointed here. A good read !
What are these "portable storage containers" for ?

Yes, we were just in London and enjoyed the early dawn. The portable storage containers are used either in a move or for short term storage. In a move, people put their belongings in the containers and they are delivered to the new location. In storage, which is probably the case for the college students, the belongings are stored for the three month summer and then delivered back to campus.
