BlogDH Panel: How we spent our snow day

I spent my snow day(s) in my room catching up on work and singing along at the top of my lungs to this during my multiple daily showers, but apparently there were actually entertaining things to do over the weekend outside of the 4th floor of Champlin. For those of you who spent your weekend like I did, here’s a chance to live vicariously through the snow day adventures of the BlogDH panel

Julius Caesar Marcus Aurelius spent his snow day riding a horse. How original.

Snowball Fighting and Sledding
Lily and I hobbled around the Main Green, I with my fractured toe and she with her sprained knee, for the epic snowball fight. Then we went sledding at India Point Park. Once I regained feeling in my extremities, I made some peppermint hot chocolate and then traipsed back through the knee-deep snow to a whiskey potluck. The next day was more of the same, plus free Ratty and sledding down the awesome hills at Moses Brown. Definitely some of my favorite days so far at Brown, and only in small part because of the novelty of a snow day.

Makeshift Downhill Skiing
My friend Brady decided to ski down the staircase on Meeting Street and go off a jump he fashioned out of the hood of a partially submerged car. This video has already racked up 60 likes on his Facebook, so he is killing.

BlogSnowyJamz: Nemo edition

We suffered through a brutal weekend of 18 inches of snow, power outages, and crazy Ratty mobs. Here’s our Nemo soundtrack:

Jam of the Week – Chromeo – Don’t Turn the Lights On
Dear people who live on Thayer St, sorry your power went out.
Love, people who live on Governor St.

Alternative – Oh Land – White Nights
Oh Land  was a professional ballerina when she broke her back…. so she casually became a beautiful singer. NBD. (via her wikipedia page). This song is such a snow frolicking song!

3 episodes of The Simpsons students in blizzards should watch


The last blizzard this big to hit Brown was so long ago, the Simpsons weren’t even around. In honor of my favorite show, and for the many closeted The Simpsons fans out there, the remaining time you have in this snow weekend for you to reminisce about the good times with your favorite yellow family. Get under some blankets, drink some Duff, and enjoy these three Simpsons episodes that are most appropriate to watch in this snowy ambiance.
