Before there was even any snow on Monday night, we got the news that we would not be having school Tuesday due to anticipated road conditions and winter weather. I was surprised that they made the call so quickly considering how it has been handled in the past. Last year, they made the decision to call of school too late and many students had to stay in the unions until the streets were plowed and buses were running again. They say that before we were freshman, school had only been cancelled due to snow a few times. But since, it has been cancelled many other times. I have heard that we have been at Mizzou for 8 of 13 or 10 of 14 cancellations. Either way, I’d say that’s a pretty good ratio!
On Monday night, our new Chancellor put out a challenge to see who could make the best snowman that looks like him! Paige, Amye, Taylor and I got to it. I have to say that most of the snowman wasn’t created by me, but I did take the pictures (except the one of the four of us) so that’s gotta count for something, right?
Sadly, the powder-y snow kept this snowman from standing up!
I also had plenty of time to try out a new recipe: teriyaki chicken. I thought it was as good as hy-chi and probably much healthier, so watch out!
Tuesday night, we heard via twitter that school would also be cancelled on Wednesday! I was pretty stoked about this because it meant skipping the class that I have to walk over a mile to. I stayed up late and enjoyed extra quiet time.
It was beyond gorgeous yesterday – so glad I got to snap a few photos. The one below is where icicles had melted, dripped to the ground below and then re-frozen in spheres. It was the neatest thing.
I think we got about a foot of snow altogether.
If you had a few days off, I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
