So today was the first time I had ever experienced having a snow day, and let me tell you, it was quite different from what I had thought it would be.
For some reason, I pictured a snow day where I would wake up with lots of snow on the ground, and someone would yell, "Snow Day!", and I would put my coat and shoes on as fast as I could, and everyone would be outside playing in the snow all day long and then we would drink hot cocoa with marshmallows in it. Sounds reasonable, right?
Except not. Basically we got an email this morning saying that the university was closed until noon. Which didn't totally affect me, seeing as how I had nothing on my schedule until 1pm anyways. But nevertheless, I went to the gym and got breakfast (thankfully, both places were still open!). Then I went to my 1:1 at 1pm and then my internship at 2, because everyone was back again. So THEN, I get another email at around 2 saying that the university is closing again at 4:30pm and all other classes and activites for the night are cancelled. Hooray for getting out of class!
But see, the weather wasn't even nice enought to celebrate! There was a decent amount of snow on the ground, but not a ton. And then it starting raining and sleeting in the late morning and afternoon, which turned into ice and made it extremely hard to walk anywhere. I slipped only two times, and luckily once no one was around to see me. Stupid ice!
So basically it was a half snow day in Dayton with some weird rainy/snowy weather. I'm holding out that the next snow day (if there is a next one!) will be a lot more picturesque! Now I'm off to read for class tomorrow...byeeee
