IT’S SNOWING! Is anyone as excited about this as I am? There could not have been a better surprise to walk outside to after a long day in the library than the east quad full of snow! And not just flurry-do-nothing snow. Real, stick to the ground, make everything beautiful and white, snow!!

Last week saw the first official snowfall in Chicago! Not as excited as I am about this? We should consider ourselves lucky. Here in Chicago we had some big, wet flakes that did not stick to the ground. I got a text from my mom around 11:00am. It was a picture of my house back [...]
