Just a quick note to let you know that the second part of Nancy's series on the microbe biosphere project is a bit delayed due to weather. Nancy is currently without power in her area of the country, and isn't able to publish her post as a result. We'll have it up for you as soon as possible and in the meantime, let's all think happy, warm thoughts for Nancy and her family!
Annie--thanks for having my back! We had a big snowstorm that knocked out our power for about 20 hours. Luckily we have it back and we're all safe & warm. For those wondering about Part 2 of our series, the make-along microbe biosphere, please check in here and thanks for your patience!
