... arch until Chester came with the key to let us into the barn. As soon as we got in there, Johnny came in to tell us it was a false alarm (found out later something got burned). Then it was back to finish the test. Now I really really really have to pack; Huber is inspecting us first tomorrow, between 12:30 and 1, and I have to be all done by then. And of course tonight is the last American Night!
... We saw them this morning, and they are perfect :) It's also extremely beautiful out right now - snow on the ground, mist in the air, sun in the sky. The moats look quite frozen over, too, but I highly doubt they're any stronger than yesterday.
