Snow Daze


Yesterday morning it started blizzarding and barely stopped until 6 P.M.! All classes were cancelled today, which probably hasn’t happened in a decade. My campus is covered in igloos and snowmen.. it’s fantastic.

A few weeks ago during a snowstorm I was waiting at night for the bus to get to campus when another route came by, about 20 minutes late. I realized that my bus would probably be similarly tardy so I flagged the bus down and it pulled over to pick me up, even though I wasn’t at a stop scheduled for the route. The snow was so bad that the driver offered to drop me off on campus in between stops– whatever was best for me.

People in small towns are just ridiculously nice, it seems. I love being able to walk down the street and smile at passers-by.

As an added bonus.. in the summertime there is a kickass farmer’s market where I once found flowers as big as my head!
