Several physicists/mathemeticians are snowed in at Uni...

I know, it sounds like the start of a bad joke, but this is what happened when a few of us got snowed in Wednesday...

So, what do we do when we get snowed in?

Work, games, snowball fights, snow forts... Ok, maybe work got a little waylaid... But there was snow! Everyone needs to release their inner child when snow comes down like this!!

Seriously, though. I haven't been home since Wednesday morning. Luckily, I always bring a spare pair of intimates with me at all times. I know where there's a shower, but I don't feel comfortable using it. Sleeping... not an issue. We all had either sofas/chairs/beanbags to sleep on, so that was all good.

Food was a different matter, though. Had to go and get some from the (overcrowded) York House store, which for reference, is halfway across campus from the Physics/Maths Library. So I had nothing but instant noodles (shock/horror) and some baked goods yesterday. I think the biggest danger that posed was the icey paths. But hey, you get better grip on fresh snow and not the compacted stuff.

Now that public transport's up and running again, I really am going home to get clean, have medicine (I haven't had any since Wednesday, either).

Good luck catching up on work, everyone!
