February is my least favorite month. Which might seem irrational because it is also the shortest month, but the weather is the worst.
I thought the groundhog said spring was coming early this year?!
Since the month started, several times a week we have been experiencing flurries and wintry mixes that accumulate to nothing but make walking around campus a pain.
I would like to give props to our grounds crew, however, for always making sure that the walkways and stairways are properly salted, sanded, and shoveled when necessary. I rarely find myself having to walk through even slush on my way to classes.
One morning we woke up and the campus was blanketed in a sheet of ice. Think McDaniel Ice Rink. Although we had a two hour delay that morning, by the time students were making their way to classes, paths were no longer a hazard.
I guess I should be thankful I am not at home and buried under the remains of winter storm Nemo. While my mom was sending me pictures of the snow and the yard, I was sending her pictures of rain and brown earth.
I think we’ve all had enough of the cold and it is time to move on to sun and warmer weather.
