Second highest point in Prov, after the Scili

In case you have been living under a rock or winter in south Florida, Providence has become a bit of a winter hellscape wonderland in the past couple of weeks. Though the cold really is a pain, the extraordinary amount of snow has given us some opportunities for fun. Russell Carey ’91 MA’06 wrote the best email ever. The Pyramids of Giza showed up on the Main Green. Every bottle of peppermint schnapps on the East Side was purchased and consumed in the span of 24 hours last week (probably).

You see? There are plenty of fun ways to beat the cold. Now we want to know how you brave the New England winters.

The weather is... awful. How do you like to spend time when it's this snowy?

#winterwonderland… Providence version.

It’s November, which means a seemingly endless onslaught of heavy precipitation at temperatures just above freezing has begun. In the past few days, I’ve heard a myriad of terms used for the absolutely awful weather that most recently visited us on Monday.

So what is it? A wintry mix? Sleet? The Worst Thing? Let us know. In the meantime, we at BlogDH just wish it would snow already. Time to move to Buffalo.

What do you call that really unpleasant semi-solid precipitation we get so often?

It’s easy to long for something more while you sit at your cubicle at your summer internship. That “something more” is an exciting coming school year at the most incredible place with the best (read: sexiest, smartest) people.
