C-BASS in the rain

I spoke too soon about the weather! It does rain here...

and when it does it is pretty severe. With thunder and lighting and massive raindrops. To be honest, we did know that there were going to be afternoon thunderstorms, but they are pretty exciting when they come through. We had to quickly cover C-BASS up so that it didn't get wet. Until the receiver goes onto the telescope, the feedhorn is open to the elements and could fill up with water if we are not careful.
