At 11:05, I was casually strolling in late to my 11 am class, annoyed with the cold and unimpressed by the sparse flakes lazily dropping on our awkwardly placed bleachers and city-owned-but-Wesleyan-maintained sidewalks. I spent the next hour looking out the window, watching shit go down (literally!) and learning less abstract algebra than I was hoping to, which is pretty much the story of my semester, but anyway, yeah, snow!
If you like the snow, take it as sign of holy solidarity in the light of last night’s election victories with you. If you don’t, now you have an external excuse to stay in your room today without betraying your political ideologies. If you’re a freshman who’s seeing this for the first time, congratulations! Skip class and listen to this album in your room all afternoon. (That’s how I spent my first Wesleyan winter. Or at least, how I prefer to remember spending it.)
Click through for a bunch of my friend’s facebook statuses, if you’re into that kinda thing. (You are.) Pictures’ll be added as the day goes on. In the meantime, the Wesleyan facebook page is in top form and already has an album of snow shots from around campus. Look at it, giggle when you see your friends, etc. etc.Presented without comment:
Normally, snow is a thing that just…happens in this part of the world, but in the last couple of years, apparently the weather has become a pretty big fucking deal. The more you snow:
- Images from January 27, 2011, the first snow day since…forever?
- And check this out from Halloween 2011, where (unlike this Halloween) campus was hit full force by both a power outage and condensed cloud pieces. More under this tag and this tag.
