Merry Christmas!

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and at LDB,
A SPIDER was scanning, cared for by Bill and me,
Cyrogenic detectors, superconducting,
Still stuck in our highbay, behind walls obstructing
Her view of the cosmos, the microwave sky,
Waiting for the balloon that will carry her high,
And the night shift is quiet, St Nick too far north,
So I watch SPIDER move, back and forth, back and forth…

We got some snowfall tonight, so Bill and I had some fun decorating SPIDER and photographing her in the snow.
