Where are they going to put all this snow?
Because Juno wasn’t enough, everyone please welcome Winter Storm Linus. Linus has already ripped through the midwest and is headed straight for us. Boston is predicted to get up to a foot and a half of snow, while Providence is slated to receive only a meager foot, starting tonight through Monday evening, at the latest.
A wintry mix later tomorrow means more ice–as if it wasn’t already impossible to walk at more than a glacial pace (see what I did there?????) on Providence’s nicely salted and shoveled sidewalks.
There’s been no word on class cancellations (we’re looking at you, Russell Carey), although I have already received emails from two professors about potential cancellations. Two snow days in a school year is unlikely, but not unprecedented following Winter Storm Sandy in 2012, which cancelled two days back to back. And even if the university remains open, be sure to check your email for individual class cancellations if professors can’t get to campus.
And, in a cruelly ironic twist, tomorrow is Groundhog Day. I guess that’s a good thing because the groundhog definitely won’t be able to see his shadow tomorrow. That being said, Providence is expecting snowfall two more days this week. Happy February everyone!
