For the first time in 15 years1, the Colorado School of Mines has a snow day.

Due to severe weather and treacherous driving conditions, Colorado School of Mines will close today (March 26) at noon.

And it really wasn’t a full day either, just a half day. Still, I somehow feel my college experience is now more complete. Rumors are circulating that tomorrow may also be a snow day, but I have my doubts.

Anatomy of a Windstorm: Washington State Ferry System in Action

Andrea, a displaced Seattleite like me who also goes to Mines, forwarded this to me. I was able to trace the photos back to a gentleman named Ross Fotheringham:

On Thursday October 18th Western Washington was hit with a 50+ MPH wind storm. Here are my pictures of the event. After work I made my way down to the Mukilteo Lighthouse Park where I witness the Mukilteo to Clinton ferry taking a pounding. These Issaquah 130 Class ferries are over 300 feet long and 78 feet wide and weight in at 2477 tons (4,954,000 lbs) unloaded…… I’ll start with some Rock & Roll.




There are a bunch more pictures that are definitely worth checking out on Ross Fotheringham’s site.
