When I looked out the window this morning, I was surprised to see snow! It actually shouldn't have been that surprising since we had snow in May last year. The snow enhances the mountains' beauty, so as long as the roads aren't too bad, I don't mind! Here is the view of from the elliptical at the rec center.
Oh, remember that six page paper I mentioned yesterday? I didn't even start it last night. I meant to rush over to the rec center after astronomy, get a quick work out in, and then do the paper between classes. Instead, I got distracted talking to various friends for forty-two minutes and then promptly colliding with another student in the parking lot precisely in front of the campus police. Both of us were backing out at the same time and didn't see each other. Luckily, we were both fine, as were our cars!
Between my work out and class, I got a big start on my paper (see below).
In my next class I managed to hit my face off of the chair in front of me while bending down to get my phone. There's not a mark yet, so hopefully it doesn't bruise and match the grapefruit-size bruise from my pair fall!
After that class, I had an hour and forty-five minutes to write my paper. However, UCCS is not known for having a reliable server or Wi Fi. After wasting twenty minutes trying to log on in the library, I went to the computer lab and finally was able to continue work on my paper. In less than fifty-minutes, I wrote the six pages and finished with ten minutes to spare. It was not fun...this is why I generally don't procrastinate!
To end with today, here is a photo of Pike's Peak I took during the first snowfall last October:
How do you feel about spring snows? Are you sick of the snow or do you still enjoy it?
