Does this mean the drought is over?

Posted by at 3:38PM

Someone please, please, please tell me there’s a perfectly rational explanation for this picture, taken by me at 1:15 outside of Encina Hall. By “perfectly rational explanation,” I mean one that does not include words to the effect of “Stanford feels the need to send guys out to water a lawn even as it gets flooded by a massive rainstorm.”

    Rational explanation 1 = Getting the leaves off the lawn
    Rational explanation 2 = Nobody waters a lawn like that
    Rational explanation 3 = In a fine establishment like this, we have sprinklers to water our lawn
    Rational explanation 4 = You are being sarcastic, but I highly doubt that

    I like #1 the best. Because raking the lawn is also something that happens with a hose.

    How about some sort of equitable distribution? That area of the lawn must not have gotten enough rain, so they are Robin Hood-ing it from the other side of the lawn so that part of the grass doesn’t feel left out. Some things are too important to be affected by budget cuts.
    Also, it’s very important that every blade of grass is healthy for Parents Weekend, because otherwise parents will stop allowing their kids to go to Stanford.

    Stanford attempts to be Chuck Norris by continuing with standard operating procedures despite any obstacle, especially the weather.
