From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
See, down at the zoo things aren't going so well. There are floods, sleet, heat waves, hail, and all sorts of crazy 10-plagues-like weather happening.
But Luke still has to run the zoo. (At least it's on a hill, right?)
Luke's house is even higher up on a hill, in a turret. He can look down on everyone from there and be comforted. Right now, the view outside of his turret isn't so comforting anymore, so he has to take an Alka-Seltzer to get sleep.
