I'm just in from the field. Scooter, the intern, is still correlating the data. Dang! This year was worse than any I've seen. Daylight Savings Time is so hard on the turkeys. They are always so stressed. However, this year it was much, much worse. I don't know if it is Global Warming, or The Sequestration, or Meteor in Russia. These birds were messed up.
Poor Scooter, he was trying to get temperature data from one of the gobblers, and I think he got his arm pretty well tore up. That gobbler saw that temperature probe coming and . . . Oh well, we got plenty of good data beyond that. One of these days folks are going to look back on this groundbreaking work and realize this was when the full effects of Daylight Savings Time were finally realized.
I know a lot of you have been out there helping to collect data this weekend. We're getting a lot of traffic on the Institute's FTP site as the data keeps pouring in. Thank you for all that you are doing out there. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
