Already this year semester school has been cancelled about a half dozen times (even as I write that it seems like an exaggeration to me but I think that it is accurate). School was cancelled yesterday at 12:30 pm and it is closed today. Why, you may ask. What sort of catastrophe could cause the University to miss at least one day every week so far, you might wonder. Well, it has been terrible. It has been almost unbearable. Right now the entire city of Memphis has come near complete stand-still because there is so much snow outside. I mean it, folks, right now there are almost two whole inches of snow outside. Seriously – hide your kids, hide your wives, and hide your husbands, too – it is end-of-times bad out there. I don’t know how much more of this intermittent snowy weather I can take. If you don’t hear from me, assume the worst. I am holed up and might perish if this weather doesn’t improve.
Here are a few photos to illustrate just how terrible we have it here:
I know that some of those pictures might look beautiful, but don’t be decieved – it is really cold stuff. And those photos that look like fluffy cotton – it is SNOW. Please, pray for me – I am not made for this sort of horror.
