COLUMBIA — There's more than a foot of snow out there — maybe some ice.
The streets are impassable, highways are closed and the wind is blowing like a typhoon.
So what? It's still possible to have a good time. Look at this guy.
During a snowstorm, wet gloves, cold hands and icy windshield wipers can be a nuisance. This could even happen.
Ice can be an even bigger problem than snow. It can cause power outages, car accidents and painful falls. Occasionally, it can also provide entertainment.
Yes, snow can be treacherous. And it can be fun.
Up for a snowball fight? Head to Francis Quadrangle at 4:30 p.m. Thursday and join more than 600 people in a campus snow brawl.
Or, try skiing and sledding. But first, watch this. Then decide.
So there's a blizzard out there. You can still enjoy yourself, as long as you understand that there's more than a foot of snow covering an inch of ice, causing accidents and unpleasant conditions, and otherwise making everything pretty miserable.
