Yeah, this isn’t the best of weather. Not to mention that it isn’t the best of times for a winter wonderland.
Finals are on Monday and Tuesday. I can only pray and hope that the weather won’t have lasting effects for the drive on Monday night. When asked what would happen if bad weather came, my professor said that there was absolutely no back-up plan. But until then, shoveling – though it desperately needs to happen – will wait. Studying and work have to take priority.
But for those readers from South Africa – I wasn’t kidding about the snow. :)
