Notes There was almost no ice on the river, only a few pieces here and there as it was very warm the past week.
After my experience a month ago doing this survey when I left my clipboard with all the information on it at the penultimate stop, I was aware to pick up the clipboard and take it to the car at Croton Dam. However when I got to the last stop and went to enter the final weather data I could not find the clipboard again in the car. I surmised that I must have left it on top of the car in order to take out my car key and put my scope in the trunk. Sure enough when we went back it was exactly where we had parked! Talk of most of us most of the time life semi-automatically, without awareness.
