Thatching and hiding from heavy rain

The thatching exercise this term started off under cloudy and cool skies. Shortly after class began, a curtain of water approached rapidly from the east. The photos were as much a form of attendance taking as documentation of the activity.

Conditions were ideal in the parking lot: cloudy and not hot

Then the rain arrived. Note that the razorback ridge to the east is completely gone

Initially the class attempted to shelter under the overhang of the top roof

The wind, rain, and amount of water coming down forced the class around the corner

The rain did not break off

Cramped conditions and located in an area of pedestrian traffic complicated work

Marigold, on the left, proceeded unfazed by the location. Nemely works on her piece.
