Every day is different out here at the NOAA Boulder Atmospheric Observatory outside of Erie, CO. Yesterday Andy Wagner (UW-Madison) noticed that the sun shield for the High Spectral Resolution (HSRL) LIDAR was torn from strong wind gusts, so today we needed to fix it. Duct tape and some pieces of wood from Home Depot did the job nicely. While we had the sun shield off we also cleaned the glass covering the HSRL. It was pretty dusty. Guess those theory guys are good for something other than forecasting where the pollution is!
