Did you hear that the largest particle detector of its kind has failed to turn up any hints of dark matter, despite searching for about a year?

And so dark matter continues to be elusive and remains a mystery.
Maybe I shouldn't say that, because that implies dark matter exists.
It's possible that the observed effects are from an as yet unknown cause other than matter.
If we're overly confident in, and focused on a cause that may or may not exist, we can easily miss the true cause.
The effects attributed to dark matter are very puzzling, but we'll figure it out, eventually.


I hope you're ready for some hot weather. It was over 100 degrees here yesterday, and we're moving into the mid 90s again today. Our weather usually moves your way.
Storms are forming all around the area as well. Uprooting trees, blowing off roofs etc.
So far it's pretty quiet in my immediate area, but I can hear all the rumbling off in the distance.

The temps have been up and down here too.
Right now we're getting some rain.
I did some work about a week ago to try and fix a spot where water was seeping into the basement. So far it looks like it worked. I have 2 other places that are a problem during a downpour. I'll start working on those next week.

We hit the 80's today. Tomorrow we will be sixty something and Thursday in the 70's. It is going back and forth all May. Hard to dress appropriately. Usually you wake up one morning and it is 80 something by noon it is over 90 and that last for days. At least this year we have Spring.
I love Summer. I can handle the heat and we have air conditioning. Endless humanity can be tough.
