The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow, Too
March 9, 2004 5:53 PM
The SF State campus flourished with activity today as students took time in between classes to enjoy the warm California sunshine.
Some students chose to keep working and thought about what they would rather be doing while others ditched their books and went out to play. And more sunny days are expected.
According to meteorology student Eric Gose: “The high pressure ridge over the Eastern Pacific is giving us the clear skies and warm weather … It should stay there consistently for the next five to seven days -- that’s if nothing drastic happens to it.”
Monday’s temperature of 82 degrees in San Francisco broke the 112-year-old record. Students Carrie Osterhout and Elinor Lumbang said they took advantage of the record-setting day by taking a trip down to the ruins of the Sutro Bathhouse.
“We were studying earlier today, but it was too beautiful outside, and we couldn’t focus,” Lumbang added.
As the temperatures hit the low 70s today and students appeared to be spending more time outside than in their non-air-conditioned classrooms, there were three students stuck in the muggy sub-basement of the campus bookstore.
While people were peeling off their clothing outside, Ben Dejesus, Sandeep Mukhedkar and Tomoko Morioka were peeling the labels off old boxes to prepare them for the shipping of unused textbooks, which will be sent back to the publishing companies.
Morioka, who got off at 3 p.m., said, “I think I am going to Irving this evening to sell some clothes … and get a Jamba juice.”
Luckily for these three clerks the Shipping and Receiving department is closed on weekends, so if the weather holds as predicted they will have plenty of time to enjoy the warm blue skies.
