So if any of you have been watching the news lately, you'll know Juno just hit the Northeast. Much snow was promised (and received) and First Years from warm climates (like me) rejoiced and shivered aplenty. I've skied before, so I'm not a stranger to snow, but the snow is usually on the ground already when I go skiing. Snow actually falling from the sky so much it blocks the bottom 1/4 of your window? Not a common sight.
At least we don't have to shovel the snow away - we have great Facilities workers to be thankful to for that (I'm constantly seeing snow plows and blowers pass by my room clearing the walkways).
I've kept my blinds up all day to see the snow outside and watch other people do their shenanigans in the snow. The dining hall staff even stayed in hotel rooms at Babson College so that they could get here to cook for us.
And yes, I know I mentioned shenanigans. Snow just seems to bring out the crazy (and awesome) in people. Because of all the snow (and the travel ban for Massachusetts), a snow day was declared (my first ever!). I walked out of breakfast (brunch?) this morning (afternoon?) and saw a lot of people gathered at the top of the stairs going from the great lawn to the O. Turns out, they turned the stairs (which you couldn't see under all the snow) into a sledding track. I've never sledded before, so I joined in and promptly got a faceful of snow. Sorry I don't have pictures of that for you guys - my phone stayed nice and dry indoors.
