A Merry White Christmas
a couple hours worth of shoveling
from “5 feet of snow in 5 weeks” to “50 inches in the last month,” weathermen/women have been documenting the aftermath of 3 snow storms. and for once, they’re right. my arms and back tell me so after i shoveled out my driveway. but the exercise is good for me and keeps me warm, and the weather isn’t too cold. really, it’s just the wind that gets me, especially when it’s blowing right at your face when you’re walking to school. the wind’s much more effective than caffeine, and it wakes you up for free. no need for starbucks gift cards, beaner’s coupons, or even calvin’s own coffeeshop, the fishhouse, which serves fair trade coffee. during the semester, i’ll walk through my neighborhood to get to school, and there’s always this one street which is incredibly windy. i feel like a car in a wind tunnel, like this one:
there’s one difference though—wind glides by this car, but it doesn’t glide by me. i eat it. i really can’t complain though… i signed up for this when i decided to attend calvin!
