While You Were Out: It Snowed

Crazy snow of apocalyptic proportions (“thundersnow“?) hit New York yesterday. Assuming your family is already getting on your nerves, here are a few glimpses of Columbiana to help you forget the hell of finals and idealize school again. Bwog woke to the sound of sleds scraping along the sidewalk. Hot cocoa in hand, we’re heading to the Hill.

  • sad flyer says:

    @sad flyer anyone else get screwed over with flights? My flight wasn’t cancelled, but basically everything transportation (buses, shuttles, trains…) related has been suspended, so there’s no way for me to get to the airport. I hope Continental will still let me rebook without charge :/

    1. samesies says:

      @samesies my flight will be the first one to leave from newark, but i have no way of getting there ): waiting to rebook, why was this not a week earlier?! why!?

      1. lol says:

        @lol so you’d prefer it if this snowstorm had screwed over the hundreds of thousands of people flying home for christmas last week?

        1. but says:
