Snowmageddon 2009: The Snowmanator!



Winter has returned to Duckford, with a frickin' vengeance.  The drive home from the Duck U Bookstore took me nigh on 25 minutes instead of the usual 10-12.  About half of the trip was done blind; the snow was coming down so heavily that, when the wind blew just right (i.e.: at all), I could see maybe past the hood of the Duckmobile.

I'm glad I made it home, but I feel fearful for the ducklings back at Duck U.  This is Finals Week, y'see, and there were quite a few scheduled tonight.  Hopefully, the kids realized that their safety is more important than their grades and called their professors.

Still no word on if Duck U will be in session tomorrow... snow days are even better when you're an adult.

1 So a lot of the students there don't live on campus?

2 About 250 out of the 1000 or so full-time students.  Duck U has always had a heavy commuter student base... I was one for half my time there, for example.

There's a lot of little farm towns around Duckford, so not only do a lot of the commuter ducklings have to drive 30-40 miles to get here, but it's through open fields and secondary roads.  Safety becomes an issue on days like this.
