Let it Snow Let it Snow

It is still started yesterday. Of course the campus didn't close today. All the public and parochial elementary, middle, and high schools are closed. But in true Franciscan form - Briar Cliff University NEVER closes!

Did I ever mention the college is situated atop one of the highest hills in the city? Of COURSE it is - the land was donated to the nuns 80+ years ago...because it is a HILL!!! I have to admit however the snow is beautiful. There are many many evergreens on campus and the edges tipped with snow...well it is a lovely scene. As I was passing one of the students outside on the sidewalk I said, "isn't this snow beautiful?" In his Texan drawl he said, "Miss Nancy I have different words for it but my mama wouldn't want me to share them with you." Of course he was wearing long shorts, a hooded winter parka, high top tennies, athletic socks and heavy gloves. I'm not sure any of the students from Texas own long pants...I'll have to think about that for awhile...

I also can't believe the number of students who complained about having to go to classes today. REALLY? You LIVE here - on campus! All you have to do - is roll out of bed - and go to class - in your jammie pants like you do any other day! KIDS!
