Happy Snow Day! See Bates College's Puddle Jump
On Thursday a few colleges and universities in the D.C. region canceled classes, following Wednesday night's icy, thundering snowstorm. For upperclassmen, it's a throwback to last year's historic and epic Snowmageddon, which shut down most campuses for nearly a week.
So, if you are stuck in your dorm with nothing to do, here's a list of 35 snow boredom busters that I came up with last year. Enjoy!
Think it's cold here? Then let me introduce you to a winter tradition at Bates College in Maine. It's called the Puddle Jump.
Each winter, Bates students venture to a tiny lake on campus that's formally called Lake Andrews, but better known as "The Puddle." They cut a hole in the ice. And then they jump in. This year's Puddle Jump was held on Saturday, when temperatures reached a balmy 16 degrees Fahrenheit.
You have to watch this video from student-run Bates College Television:
