As I prepare to walk into work, I glance out the window and see rain has settled in. Most of my summer field season is spent mucking around in some form of aquatic habitat including lakes, rivers, bogs, fens, and marshes. It isn’t too much of a stretch to say that almost every day of my summer I am wet, so a little rain on my walk shouldn’t deter me. I grab my wide brimmed hat, pull the collar of my coat up, and ready myself for the trip. Exiting the house, I am met with both tiny droplets and a little breeze that drives the rain into my face. There always seems to be some form of wind here in northwest Ohio, so that bit isn’t unusual. I lower my head slightly to provide my face with some protection from the rain and start my daily commute.
