Our view: Snow falls at wrong time for students

“In the past two years, we have had to put up with some of the worst weather possible. Because classes are never, ever cancelled at the University of Akron, students have had to brave -30 degree wind chills, a foot of snow and in general, weather conditions that make walking to class a living nightmare.”

In the past two years, we have had to put up with some of the worst weather possible. Because classes are never, ever cancelled at the University of Akron, students have had to brave -30 degree wind chills, a foot of snow and in general, weather conditions that make walking to class a living nightmare.

This winter is most likely the worst thing that most UA students have had to experience so far in their years here. We have, of course, had one and a half snow days, which is not anything to complain about.

The weather, however, seemed to play the biggest joke on us this weekend. We get one of the largest snowfalls in one day ever reported, yet it didn’t even affect regular weekday classes. The weather conveniently became horrible as soon as we wanted to leave and have a good weekend on Friday. This horrible weather prevented us from going out Friday, Saturday and even some of Sunday.

And of course, that leaves just enough time for the snow crews to get off their butts and go clean the roads perfectly so we can all go to class Monday with giant 3-day hangovers from the amount of alcohol consumption that were inadvertently inflicted upon us due to the boredom the snow offered.

It seems like a stretch to complain about bad weather hitting on the weekends and being mad about it because we don’t get school off, but its really not. Think about how much you look forward to the weekend, and when it’s taken away due to feet of snow, it’s tragic.

Next time mother nature wants to drop a couple feet of snow on Akron, we just hope that she decides to spill it during the week-when we actually want it.

But, it’s impossible to say what will happen with Ohio’s climate in the future.

This is probably the best reason in the history of Ohio to hate its weather.
