This post is for anyone not familiar with the New England region.
Turns out – we get a lot of snow here.. maybe a little too much. We had the first snow day of the year last week, the day when we were supposed to have out MidCrit (midterm critique) which is a really big deal. It’s the kick-off Crit for everyone in Thesis. By now we’re all supposed to have concepts and schematic design ideas underway enough to start actually designing buildings after the MidCrit. However, mother nature apparently does not want us to design buildings because she’s bound and determined that we are not going to have a MidCrit. As I’m writing this, the city of Boston just went under a Parking Ban which is how you know the weather less than desirable. Essentially, the mayor really doesn’t want anyone on the roads because there’s that much snow. If you’re lucky enough to be from a tropical, warm climate and haven’t had the chance to experience a good ol’ fashioned Nor’easter, here is the view outside the 525 dorm this morning. Some people love it. Some people hate it. It’s just a part of life in Boston this time of year. It can actually make for some fun days as long as you have waterproof boots.
So here’s to another snow day! Sorry thesis – mother nature obviously doesn’t want me to finish you.
