May 31, 2013
The dreary weather of last week has disappeared and the early summer heat has returned with a vengeance. Many of the bright flowers that so captivated visitors’ camera lenses for the past few weeks have already surrendered to the overwhelming assault of green, and the sun has unleashed its most unforgiving rays, indiscriminately bestowing sunburns on unsuspecting noses and shoulders and necessitating the use of sunglasses. Quite appropriate then, that yesterday’s staff meeting focused on safety precautions and heat stroke awareness. Integrated Resources Program Manager Greg led the group in a nail-biting emergency simulation involving hypothetical groundskeepers Lars, Olaf, and several unfortunate events that befell them; ie., heatstroke, ladder mishap, eye poked by vicious lilac branch. Remember to slather on the sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and always have your cell phone with you before setting off on your next visit to Weir Farm National Historic Site!
