Unexpected weather

"Footprints mark the snowy sidewalk as a student makes her way toward the Union garage Wednesday afternoon. The snowfall was the first of the semester and forecasters called for 2-4 inches to be dropped on Towson throughout the day. Sophomore Kanzas Gray said she didn't mind the snow. "I wish they canceled classes, though," she said. "It's a mess and no one likes walking to class when it's cold and slippery.""

The last couple days have gone by very fast. So fast that I had no idea that it was going to snow.

As I packed up my gear and books this morning I noticed light flurries outside my window.

I thought nothing of it. At the Ravens game on Monday it snowed nearly the entire game. Nothing stuck or made a mess of the roadways though.

On my commute to class there was still nothing. No snow. The flurries had actually stopped.

Fast forward. As I walked to class I noticed the snow becoming steady and sticking, not only to the grass, but to the sidewalks and side streets.

Everyone was bundled up and a lot of students had entire snow suits, boots and thick gloves on.

Here I was in khakis and a light coat.

The minute I walked through the door of my class, I checked the weather forecast. I was in for a surprise. Forecasters called for 2-4 inches to be dropped on Towson throughout the day.

I knew right away that: The cover would now be a snow feature, I was going to freeze walking around in less than appropriate attire and my drive home would be a pain, even though I have a Subaru with all wheel drive. I need new tires.

Thankfully, I made it home safe. Additionally, I was cold and cover transformed from a construction story to the (above) snow feature.

The semester is wrapping up. I just finished a challenging multimedia project and I have two more papers to write by Monday.

In the meantime, check back for an update from the Big Apple: New York City. I'll be up there from Thursday to Sunday. I'll be back just in to time for the Ravens vs. Colts game Sunday night.

I love that red umbrella. And at the perfect angle, too.
