I walked in today along the canal. It's a clear cold day (-3C right now), a relief after all the dreary overcast days of late. The canal had frozen and I could clearly see a hexagonal structure in the ice, like enormous frozen snowflakes.
I've spent most of this week working on a techinical report. I'm glad it's finished and I feel good about the work. Doing the analysis, and getting statistically significant results, was nice (when I reviewed other work for the Related Work section I was rather surprised how few authors do any proper analysis of their results). I hope to turn it into a publication soon.
