Spotted! Hordes of children (Class of 2027) descending upon Penn to frolic atop the Button. Now isn’t that just adorable! (as is this) We wonder if this is their parents’ way of preparing them for the ‘the talk.’
Ah, Thanksgiving Break… Turkey leaking a steady drip of tryptophan into your system, all the women fighting in the kitchen over who gets which leftovers, the boys crowded around the TV catching the big synchronized swim meet, and Aunt Lisa passed out on the couch.
But first, a half-week’s worth of things happening on campus:
UA Airport Shuttles
Who: The Undergraduate Assembly
When & Where: Tuesday and Wednesday, Upper Quad Gate
Why: If you have to ask, you must live in New York.
It’s the question on everyone’s minds: will it rain during Fling? We consulted our meteorological department, who then checked several different weather websites to give us some aggregate predictions. This is real science, so you should trust everything we say.
The bottom line: the average prediction for Friday is a 25% chance of rain, while Saturday is at a 55%. For detailed forecasts, check after the jump.
Yo, the weather is seriously whack in Philly. Earlier, we received a heat advisory email from Facilities Services, and the next thing we know we’ve got hurricane-force winds blowing stuff down everywhere. If the rumors are true, pieces of DRL’s roof have flown off and live squirrels were being tossed around. If you have pictures to confirm that (or more tornado tales) send us what you’ve got!
Just in case you haven’t been compulsively checking the weather forecast to find out what this Fling may bring (and why the hell not?), we’ve got you covered.
There’s some good news and some bad news. For now, keep your plans to skip class on Thursday afternoon and sip some punch on your porch. And if you don’t have that on your schedule, you may want to set aside some time, since that’s the best that it’s going to get.
…but apparently not hot enough, according to Penn Housing Services. It seems like only days ago we transitioned to fire hazards heating, but now we’re back to craving the A/C.
However, the College Houses won’t just let any old weather inspire central cooling; they have some complex formula that must be adhered to in order to give us relief.
Read the whole explanation email after the jump, but in the meantime, enjoy the solidarity with Hill residents.
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.
