5 Inches Under

For the past few days it has been snowing fairly hard. To the effect of about 4-6 inches of snow everywhere (including covered portches!). This morning's snow was super light and fulffy, to the point of when I stepped out from the house on to the walk, a 'puff' of snow came up. It was so cool! I don't think I have ever really seen that...

I have greatly enjoyed walking to the bus these past few days. Very peaceful. A little slippery given the hills. But beautiful.

I have not enjoyed the bus situation the past few days. It has been absurd. On Tuesday I almost walked in to downtown (I ended up going about a mile and a half) just to catch a bus. Of the 6 or 7 stops I passed, the minimum number of people waiting was around 30 people! That is crazy! That should not happen! And of course everyone was on edge because of that... and everyone was wearing their snow gear, making the bus super humid and hot. The walls were sweating. Ugg... I need to move closer to school!

In other news, classes are going well, Ill do a full update this weekend about them. I am thinking this sememster is going to be sweet!

I also got a chance to talk to a few old friends, Bill and Alana on Tuesday and James and Jamie on Wednesday. All conversations were great, and just emphisised how much I miss you guys!

Well I need to get ready for class... Ill fill you guys in more later.


  1. I wondered how you were doing in the snow. The bus situation doesn't surprise me... too bad it gets so bogged down! It snowed all day yesterday and is now pouring down rain... not a good combination... I drove thru standing water over my hubcaps twice on the way to school, and because it was dark, did not see them and couldn't get around them in time! Not so fun! Can't wait to hear about your classes... How about "Mohawk Man"???

    PS ~ Going to the Men's GU game tonight :-)

  2. Item 1: Two syllables for East Coast snow... wussies.
    Item 2: Your mom can swim so she is safe driving through water.
    Item 3: Superhero name suggestion... Kilt Man. Slogan: It's not a bird, it's not a plane... don't look up, it's Kilt Man.
    Item 4: Good luck with the bus situation and getting to and from. Public transportation seems to be a much bigger deal on the right coast (if you're using the traditional North American centric map).

  3. I have never seen snow that light and fluffy either, Scott. I also love walking outside or walking to school when there is snow on the ground. Everything is a little more serene and quietly peaceful. Still. I love it.
