All week, Liberty University students, including myself, had been waiting with anticipation to see what would become of this snow storm coming up from the south. Last night around 5pm, we got the announcement that there would be no classes today (Thursday, February 13th)! Guys on my hall were elated and students all over campus started playing in the snow that started falling at a rate of 2 inches an hour. From about 3pm when the snow started falling and overnight, about 10 inches of snow fell on campus. Snowball fights involving hundreds of students and sledding down the various hills on campus were some of the activities that students enjoyed. For some students, this was the first time they’ve ever seen a snowfall like this before. I, being from Syracuse, wasn’t really impressed, but it was a beautiful sight to see the white stuff that used to accumulate up to 5 feet sometimes while I lived in Upstate New York.
Today, my girlfriend and I are at Panera, eating lunch and doing our homework. It just started snowing again so maybe we can get some more classes cancelled tomorrow? It might be just a prayer, but no matter what happens, seeing this snow makes me feel at home.
UPDATE: No classes tomorrow!
