I have class tomorrow morning so I'll make this quick.

Baltimore is currently a wreck. They had put aside $60million for clearing snow this year, and before the last storm even hit, they'd gone through $50 million of it. People have been out on the street with shovels, and I haven't seen a snow plow once since this whole mess started. Even better, another storm is supposed to hit tomorrow evening bringing another 20inches of snow with it.

I was off of class today, but tomorrow supposedly MICA will be open again. After the storm hits though, I can't imagine we'll have class the rest of the week.

Just to give you an idea...


That's me standing in the middle of an intersection on Mt Royal (basically the Baltimore equivalent of Rout 12), and for anyone familiar with the MICA campus, that's Bunting and Fox behind me. No cars, no plows, and snow up to my knees in most places.

Holy crow! That's an incredible amount of snow right there!
We're supposed to get about 12 inches tomorrow and I was incredibly pissed off about the idea of that but now I don't feel so bad about the prospect of only 12 inches...

haha well apparently this is way more snow than Baltimore usual gets.. from what I've been told (it's my first winter here), they only see a few inches. Usually.

12 inches is still a decent amount though. Hell, ANY amount of snow can be a pain in the ass.
