A lot of unexpected things have been happening on campus over the past couple of weeks. On Tuesday night of last week, gastroenteritis, which came to be known on campus as the McVirus and the McPlague showed up unexpectedly. (In our college campus bubble, not many people were aware that gastroenteritis had been going around Carroll County for a couple of weeks.)
This week, something more delightfully unexpected happened: yesterday at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, the College announced that we would be having a snow day today in anticipation of several inches of snow. While many people on campus had been expecting snow for a couple of days, none of us expected McDaniel to declare a snow day so early.
To celebrate the snow day announcement, four of my friends and I went to Denny’s for “second dinner” yesterday evening before the snow started falling. It was nice to go out, since I hadn’t seen much of my friends because I had been sick, and I ordered enough food to have leftovers for today so I wouldn’t have to go outside to get lunch.
Though the snow ended up being not as dramatic as we thought it would be, having a snow day today has been nice. I spent a lot of time sleeping today, so tonight I have to work on returning to reality by getting some homework done. Fortunately however, since the school is closed, I don’t have any activities to go to tonight, so I still have plenty of time to accomplish things!
