Soggy Exam and Campus Landscaping

We had the first of our 4th year exams today: "Relativity and Electrodynamics".

The exam itself was ok, not particularly easy but it had the scope for being spectacularly difficult and wasn't so not too bad in that respect. The conditions were not so great though. It was raining when we left Redfern and the exam was in the Westwood games hall. By the time we got half way it was a torrential down pour. My trousers were thin and take up water very easily and my shoes are like sponges. I managed to keep them at least from filling with water by jumping puddles until we got to the entrance to the hall to find a 3m long 3" deep lake with a sheer wall and fence either side… damn. So most of us sat there for 3 hours completely and totally drenched and the games hall is not the warmest palce in the world. Still, sht happens…

Also, I noticed on the way that the only part of campus suffering from flash floods was the brand new shiny landscaped bit on the way up to university house. The ornamental 'rivers' (of mud) were over their banks, the grass area had turned back into the paddy-fields it seemed to be during construction, and the road where the large speed bump thing is had filled to a good 5" deep. Excellent design effort there, really a job well done!
