It is cold and breezy out, with the temperature about 45 degrees. There is 1% cloud cover, and the sun is shining in certain parts with shady spots under the trees. The entrance to a building at Waynflete school is behind us, along with a green trash can next to it. There's also a walkway behind us with Granite rock slabs and cherry trees along with some other unknown tree species. We are standing in a parking lot, and to the left of us there is a blue Honda CRV. Next to the green trash can behind us, there is a drainage vent, and to the right there are 3 metal poles. In front of us, there's a mulch garden with a fence with about 6 species of plants that are unknown to us. We are 150 ft. from Storer St. in Portland Maine. The air smells fresh, and birds are chirping, along with the sounds of students talking.
