YES! Another snow, well Ice, day!

Woke up this morning to go to work at 6:00, got ready, went outside and there was a 1/4" of Ice covering the ground and my car. I broke my scraper last week during our ice storm when we got over an inch of ice, so I came inside to get my fiancés keys, and was like, I better check the SIUC website. Sure enough, classes canceled. Last week was the first time they canceled an entire day since 1984, and now we got two in a week! I'm going to grab a beer...

Here's some pics of last weeks nightmare, took me over an hour to get the ice off my windows!

Why spend an hour scraping that shit off, when you could start your vee-hick-el and turn the heeter on.

hmmmm

Maybe you should be in college.

That was with my car on, if I waited for the defroster to melt an inch of ice off my windshield, my car would have probably ran out of gas considering it was already on E when I started it that morning.

Yeah, that really sucks. A large section of the Midwest is seeing that storm. Thankfully it should stay south of Chicagoland.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I remember waking up a few years ago in Lewis Park to go to class and seeing a scene just like that. That was the only day I walked to class as I couldn't get into my car

I miss college

This storm isn't very far from us. Kankakee might see the edges.


We are getting a bit of lake-effect snow right now.

It just continues to rain down ice balls, it's pretty cool. At least we got another day off.
