Blizzard plus no school equals…what?

Blizzard plus no school equals…what?

As you may have heard, DeKalb got hit with a little bit of a blizzard between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. How did the near-record 18.7 inches of snow affect you?

Well, it didn’t stop me from going out on Tuesday night (which was a bad idea), but I am going crazy staying inside. I need fresh air and some real nourishment besides dorm food!

I was in complete shock from the blizzard. I remember looking out the window and thinking “Oh my God, is this really happening?” Anyone who had any common sense probably stayed warm and safe inside. But let’s be real, the biggest snow storm couldn’t stop college kids from going out. Walking home at 4 a.m. in snow up to my waist was definitely not fun.

The blizzard definitely set me back a few days in my schedule with personal time, but it did give me time to do homework and hang out with friends. I was happy school was cancelled two days in a row so I could have time to relax and rejuvenate for the upcoming week of classes. But I must say, DeKalb plowmen did a horrible job of plowing. Thanks for blocking everyone’s cars in and forcing them to dig themselves out of even more snow.

Snowpocalypse Now snowvided me with an insane number of snow puns. For awhile I was caught in a bad snowmance with Snowtorious B.I.G. His snowformance was The Fast and The Flurriest. He left me for a snowmosexual. To take out some anger, I played some football with Snow Namath and Tony Snowmo. After that, everyone got slizzard because it rhymes with blizzard. Thank you for all the Facebook status updates, Snowmageddon 2011 survivors.

This week’s blizzard told this university who’s boss. We, the students, have been demanding a break for a long time now, and it seems to me like it has finally been heard. When it came down to school versus nature, nature clearly walked away as the undisputed champion. Take that, homework.
