Snow…

So, the weatherman was correct for once and the supposed 6-10″ did indeed happen. Now it wasn’t one of those blissful snowdays where the snow just peacefully floats through the air until it gently kisses the pavement. No, no no. No. This was the type of snow that just gathered on the trees and weighed it down so much, that throughout the course of the day just began to destroy trees by the sheer volume. It began to snow last night, and continues to snow even to this minute.

After waking up this morning, I went out to my car to scrape all of the snow and ice off of my windshield. I was greeted by a sudden ‘crack’ and turned around just in time to see half of this huge tree across the street just fall to the ground. It reminded me of a bomb because as the branches hit the ground, the snow plume around it was in the shape of a mushroom cloud.

As I was walking around campus, the scene around me was evident of some horrific battle as all of the trees (or a majority of them anyways) were just destroyed beyond belief. There were so many branches that littered the streets and sidewalks. These weren’t just the wimpy branches either, these were the kind of branches that you could hear breaking off from all the way across campus. Some areas of campus were even taped off to the public which just happened to make it look like a crime scene. Haha, so I definitely got what I wanted. (Snow that is.) But the crazy thing was…the university decided to stay open. Why???? It’s supposed to stay cold for the rest of the week. It’s not even Halloween yet and it already feels like Christmas…

And yes, those are photos from around campus. The actual school that I go to.
