Winter storm to dump massive amounts of snow, everyone already losing their shit
Vox is excited to go out and build her second snow man tomorrow
Update 10:55 pm: Vox has stopped doing homework since classes are officially cancelled for tomorrow!
Update 4:49 pm: According to a HOYAlert, the University will be closed at 8 p.m. Classes that start before that time will end at 8 and classes starting at or after that time will be cancelled. The message did not yet say whether the University will be closed tomorrow.
Original post: The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the District from 8 p.m. Wednesday to 3 p.m. Thursday. Heavy snow and sleet is predicted to hit the D.C. area with 5 to 14 inches.
The Washington Post reminded everyone not to get their hopes up too high, even at the promise of 5 to 14 inches: “The snowstorm Wednesday night and Thursday is still roughly 36 hours away, which can be an eternity when a 30 mile shift in the storm track can be the difference between a moderate snowfall and paralyzing dump.”
Those are some choice words, Post. After reading that, Vox wasn’t so sure she wanted a winter storm after all. Then Vox thought of frolicking in mounds of snow and was more okay with the phrase “paralyzing dump.”
Considering the fact that Maryland and Virginia have both already declared states of emergency, Vox is seriously getting excited (and already planning on not doing homework).
As Provost Robert Groves’ campaign against snow days is still in its infancy, a campus closure will most likely mean class cancellation on Thursday. Hopefully, Georgetown will be able to celebrate one more snow day before that fateful decision goes into effect.
