We appreciate this particularly dire depiction of the nasty weather we’re in for this weekend, especially the red-outlined gerund. While we would have preferred STUPIFYING, INCAPACITATING, or BENUMBING, we still suggest you bundle up for Major Winter Storm ’10. While you’re at it, think of a good name! Why should hurricanes have all the fun? Leave your best suggestions in the comments.
Congratulations on surviving finals week, dear readers. For now, we leave you with some pictures of Penn at its snowiest to tide you over until you’re back on campus (classes officially begin January 13, lest you forget). Thanks to DP photo editors Pete Lodato and Maanvi Singh for the Quad snowball fight pics, and to tipster Dave Dobkin for the ones of campus looking all pretty.
Freshmen were out in full force celebrating their first real Penn snowfall! Quad-dwellers took a break from being some of the only people left on campus (way to go Math department) to have good, old-fashioned snowball fights and make good, old-fashioned snow nipples. Miss out? Apparently another fight is scheduled to go down later if you’re itching to douse someone in snow.
More pictures after the jump!
Our first snow pic comes to us via star tipster Jayme van Oot (mad props for the Button cameo!):

If you’re stuck in a windowless study spot like some people we know photographed, you might be totally oblivious to the fact that it is snowing right now. Snowing a TON. We’re about to don our mittens and head out to bring you some photos from campus, so check back soon.
In the meantime, prepare your sleds. We’ll see you on that slightly elevated hill behind Gregory.
While we all trudged to campus in the snow, classes were canceled for students in the College of Liberal & Professional Studies (the artist formerly known as CGS, as it were). The decision was made at about 2 p.m. today, after the brunt of the storm. Lame, but considering that a lot of LPS students commute to campus, understandable. (We’re not jealous of the LPSers, just bitter that College kids slummin’ it in LPS courses got a day off.) Check out the e-mail, after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
