Snoto!

You’ve all said you’re plenty sick of the snow, though probably not snow days (for those of you who get them!)  Clean up in DC seems to be well underway — and while it’s nice to be able to get around, the whole process really squelches the beauty of the snow.  And while our Flickr pool has been filling up with some really beautiful shots of FoBo under snow, here’s a pic that sums up exactly how I feel about all the snow at this point.

GW v. GU Snowdown Media Wrapup

So, clearly GWU was declared victorious in yesterday’s snowbath of epic proportions. Here’s a roundup of different videos, photos, and love matches culled from the inter-tubes for your viewing pleasure, and to give you one handy link to send to your friends who are stuck in sunnier climes.

  • The Hatchet has a slideshow of GWU’s victory [Hatchet]
  • While the Georgetown Voice blog, Vox Populi has some embedded videos of their demise. Also, someone on their site makes an excellent Star Wars references that actually made me lol. Props. [Vox Populi]
  • GW man-of-note Chris Brooks uploaded a GW-perspective video. [YouTube]
  • The hordes of GW advance [YouTube] & A Scene from the Battlefield [YouTube]
  • And over at (ugh) CNN iReport, someone named GWUAlum has uploaded another video. [iReport]

My favorite outcome of this whole (grossly lopsided) snowball fight, however, even more than University President Steve Knapp’s appearance, is this missed connection on Craigslist. This poor girl has already been branded a traitor on the twitter-sphere, but I think it’s kind of sweet. I’m rooting for you, GW girl, and your Montague-Capulet romance.

Snow: we lost count, GW: 0

GW once again is definitely closed Thursday, Feb 11.  No classes, designated employees only need show up.

Twitteristas who were at the GW v GU snowball fight tonight were reporting that GW President Steven Knapp declared no classes after GW’s victory.  We’re guessing the cancellation has more to do with DC being frozen to a standstill than with the awesome snowballing skills of GW students.  But hey, we’ll take what we can get, right?

GW Claims Victory Over GU at Snowdown

Well, I’m not sure how exactly these things are decided — but the Twitter hashtag #GWGUSnowdown is blowing up with celebratory victory claims in favor of GW.

Evidently GW President Steven Knapp showed up at the front lines as well, with a rallying cry of “No Classes!”

If any of you were there, give us the details in the comment section.

Snow More or No More? [Polls]

The Snoverkill storm system predicted to drop another 6-16 or 10-20 inches (depending on who you ask) has yet to arrive, but there are still plenty of people stuck at home today from the last big storm, including the federal government!  We’ve already gotten more snow this winter than the past four combined — are you ready for more?
