But it wasn't last night"

"Oh, it's just her!" Nicole called in relief, opening the door wide for me. I stepped inside WHOI's Shore Lab to find the two interns hard at work. A cart filled with computer equipment and note sheets stood in the wide entrance hall. Thick cords ran from the cart through a low opening in the wall into the cold room. As I examined the scene, Meghan emerged from the cold room, wearing shorts over her leggings and a headlamp on her head. Dressed for battle, I guess.

Outside in the hall, Nicole responded to Meghan's commands by starting the camera's recording software. By the time Meghan and I re-emerged from the cold room, there were tiny black dots swimming up and down on the screen - larvae.

I'm excited to see Meghan's data once all the experiments are finished! There should be very cool results!
