Ithaca has been pounded by snow over the past two days.
I have lived in a variety of “lovely” places (Buffalo and Chicago mostly) and I have seen sideways rain, heat waves that have been dangerous to drive in, lightning during a snow storm, and so on. This recent Snownami has been in the top 5 weather shenanigans I have witnessed.
And it just keeps coming down! As steward for my fraternity, it is my job to ensure food is delivered on Friday nights. I had to call three different places before someone would pick up a phone and deliver to us! Cornell even canceled classes on Friday (although, it was only anything before 9:30am. I don’t know if there are any classes before 10:10 on Fridays…)
Greek Peak (our local ski spot) has been incredible. So (I have heard) was the all school snow-ball fight that occurred yesterday. And as poor college kids, a few of us got garbage bags and went sledding on the hill near our house. (Note: a highly controversial school rule prohibits sledding down the slope. This photo was NOT taken on the slope.) It’s a beautiful scene here in Ithaca!
