For the past two days, Gardner Webb has had two snow days. It snowed about two nights ago. When I woke up, I looked outside and the outside of my suite looked like the picture below.
I did have fun in the snow yesterday first by sledding. My suite didn’t have any sleds so we found a way to still go sledding. We took three cushions from the suite and covered them in garbage bags. Beyond Suite J, there is this big hill that we went sledding down. Sledding on cushions is actually more fun than sledding on an actual sled. I went sledding with my suite-mate, Sydney, and a friend of ours. At the end of sledding, Sydney collected snow for snow creme, something I never had before.
The picture of me below is me with the snow cream. Snow cream tends to be made with snow, vanilla and milk. But because we didn’t seem to have vanilla, we used maple syrup instead. Yes I have a long sleeved shirt and pajama pants, but because my pants were so wet because of sledding, I changed into pajama pants. Glad I finally had that snow creme. It was quite obvious that school would be cancelled again the next day since over night, the temperature would not get higher than twenty so every thing would freeze over.
We were right. School was cancelled. Today my day in the snow was building a snowman. Well, the snowman was what I would call a “mini snowman” because it wasn’t easy. I did a lot of it alone but eventually a suite-mate helped. I ended up using my scarf to decorate the snowman. We used branches and mulch for the arms and face. I came in putting on pajama pants again and than drink hot chocolate, a perfect way to end a school day.
Snow days are fun. They are days of building snowman and sledding. They are days of having either snow creme or hot chocolate.
