Sometimes I have trouble coming up with something to write about, but sometimes, the topic falls right into my lap…2 feet at a time.

Most of the midwest has been hit by the latest “snowpocalypse,” and Evanston was forecast to get something like 2 feet of snow in a 24-hour period. Northwestern U (including Kellogg) ended up canceling classes yesterday evening and today.

This morning, things were looking pretty bad outside of the window with lots of snow and wind dancing all over the place. I thought it was the perfect time to go outside and experience a blizzard for the first time, so I suited up, threw my camera into a plastic 1-qt bag, and went for a walk.

I was hoping to make it to downtown Evanston, but unfortunately, my camera’s battery died before I could make it.
