So, my first winter here in Frostburg is proving to be an interesting one. Growing up in Germantown as a kid, snow was a know-fact of winter, but most of the time a rare occurrence and never more than 6 inches; the exception was the infamous blizzard of 1996, where we got smacked with close to 3 feet. In general, whether it was a snow dance right before bed, listening to the radio desperately, or simply hoping
, every kid wanted lots of snow. As Bill Watterson had Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes
(Though we weren't THAT desperate.)
So coming out here, it's been both a snow dream and worst nightmare come true. We were just starting to thaw out from the last round of snow we had (from mid-January, right around my birthday) when we got hit again
this weekend and had 28 inches dumped onto the town.
My buddy Vince (aka my Spain) and I decided on Saturday to go sledding, though it proved to be MUCH tougher than we expected. We snapped plenty of pictures and in general acted like complete morons. It was a lot of fun, if a bit arduous.( Holy crap so many photos!Collapse )
That's all for today- classes are cancelled, may as well enjoy the day! :D
