i went to the coffee shop yesterday, and started grading papers. long story short, my geography students need more practice with maps. also, i ran into one of my old geography professors at the coffee shop, and he was working on some research (you know, that's what they have to do). anyway, we talked for a while about geography,the snow pack, and teaching. it was good, it made me miss being in geography classes having similar discussions with other geographers. so if you are interested in geography, find me so we can talk about it.
