Snow Days Delight

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.

  1. This post amused me greatly for several reasons. One, as a Canadian, I can’t believe you got two days of cancelled school for that dusting of snow. And two, I’ve never heard of snow cream, but that sounds so good! I’ll have to look up recipes!


      • 3 inches? That’s nothing! We don’t get snow days unless there’s like 10+ inches. And even then, complete snow days are rare as usually schools will stay open but buses will be cancelled.
        Well, at least you had fun! Snow days, in any capacity, are always such a weird and pure experience.

      • than the next day it got cancelled the snow iced over since the temperature all night stayed under 20. It has to do with dangerous it might be outside to get to class.


  2. Looks like you had some fun! In Seattle, we had a white Christmas but by the time school started up again, the snow was pretty much gone!


  3. It’s all over the place. This is one crazy winter i tell you. Offlate when temperature touches 30 we say – oh outta gotten better lol. But anyway i m glad you had your share of fun!!


    • It is crazy. Some states had temperature under 0 degrees. In Boiling Springs, where Gardner Webb is, we had no school for two days


  4. Girl we have seen -23F this time. No kidding. I was frozen inside my apartment under blankets. And New Hampshire at one point it was -100F. They were in the news with headlines telling they are now colder than Antarctica. Already waiting for summer !!
