Things have been pretty hectic in Fredonia and it's mostly due to the weather. This past tuesday evening we had a pretty bad ice storm. It caused the power to go out for about 7 hours starting at 5 in the morning. Unfortunately, the building that I was in is so old that the wiring gets screwed up easily. The power outage didn't help at all and, starting at 545, the building's fire alarms went off for two hours. We were only outside for about 10 minutes of it and for the rest we were inside losing our hearing. It was not a fun day. We had classes canceled until noon, but unfortunately had classes afterwards.

In the past few days we've accumulated near 2 feet of snow I would imagine. It's ridiculous outside. It literally never stops snowing. Of course this weekend has been when I have a million and one things to do around campus. So what would normally be a 3 minute walk is now a 7 minute walk after attempting to trudge through the poorly plowed sidewalks. I'm not usually a complainer about snow because Fredonia gets significantly less snow than Syracuse does, but come on! At least in Syracuse they plow immediately when it starts snowing. Fredonia let's it build up in attempt to get rid of it in one fell swoop.

Let's hope it stops snowing soon.
