Its raining in North Michigan

It's raining non-stop here at the Northern Michigan University in Marquette. Had my first day of lectures here which went off really well! Talked about puppetry to three student groups today: nursing students studying public health, education and communication students. Tomorrow, among the classes is one for Public Law students, where I'll discuss puppetry and it's role in prison reform. The flights getting here yesterday were serious, first a small jet from Toronto to Minneapolis and then a small turbo-prop to Marquette. For those who haven't flown turbo-prop recently, it's a painful experience, both on the ears and the stomach! But it's really a great experience being in small town America, where the people are friendly and the Uni is cool!
PS. I have tickets for Avenue Q on Broadway for Saturday night!
