It rained grass on the landing harbor today. And to prove it to you I took a picture. See? It looks like all the ships are sitting in a grass field up to the top of the water level on their keels.

I don't know how many times a month this is going to happen here, but it's new. No one on the team knows how to deal with it, since it hasn't been previously recorded as a weather phenomenon.

Hopefully, all that green stuff that fell out of the sky will not corrode or otherwise "eat" through the ships overnight! 'Cause nobody is planning on doing anything about the situation today. Besides, it'll be impossible today anyway, the agendas haven't been cleared for this unforeseen event.

If the ships do dissolve they will have to send new ones to us from earth. And that could take a while. In the meantime, we'll just have to learn to "swim" in this green stuff we got falling down over here, I guess.

This is Sam, signing off for tonight. Hope you all down there on planet E are fending okay for yourselves! Talk to you tomorrow. Chow
PS. Will send an update on the green stuff tomorrow. We should know how toxic it is by then!
