Snow Day in Seattle!

Thought snow days were a thing of the past? Think again!

Last night, UW canceled all normal operations and classes for today, which sent Fosterites celebrating by either finishing a paper or going to a pub! Today, as Seattle was cloaked in white from a rare snow storm, people utilized the impromptu day off with a wide variety of activities. What did some of our students do? Read below to find out!

“I went for a walk around Fremont with my roommates, made quesadillas, and watched some 30 rock!”
– Ben Reid, Full-Time Class of 2013

“Working, walking dogs, then drinking hot toddies!”
– Chris Simons, Full-Time Class of 2013

“Sledding at gasworks park, building a snowman while discussing “stuff MBAs say,” apples-to-apples game, and maybe pancakes with 10-15 other first year MBAs”
– Laura Periano, Full-Time Class of 2013

“Walked down the center of the road to my favorite café for a warm bowl of soup and delicious cup of coffee this morning. Then headed back to my toasty apartment for a 24-a-thon with my fiancé and friend who are stuck up on Queen Anne Hill with me. Plans for homemade soup and a bottle of wine for dinner.”
– Sherry Gardella, Full-Time Class of 2012

“I just woke up” (Emailed at 3 pm)
– Charlie Northrop, Full-Time Class of 2013

“After staying up until 1:30 am finishing a paper, my husband was kind enough to take baby duty and let me sleep in until 9:30 (UNHEARD OF!). We bundled up and walked over to Greenlake to pull the baby around in a little baby sled, which she loved. On the way home, we stopped by Starbucks so I could spend way too much money on my favorite “Christmas Beverage” (venti non-fat white chocolate mocha with 3 pumps of sugar free peppermint). I then had a conference call with my team to discuss our Applied Strategy consulting project. Hopefully I can hammer out tomorrow’s assignments in the next couple hours, and then go to a classmate’s house for hot toddies and board games.”
– Mandi Chappell, Full-Time Class of 2013

“After waking up at 11 am (late!) I had a couple hours of guilt, and decided to be productive. Then, decided that was dumb, and since then have been drinking wine and watching classic movies while I wait for my significant other to stop being a productive member of society and come home so we can hike through the snow to dinner. I also booked flights to warm places (nothing motivates like a 25 degree, snowy day).”
– Carly Massey, Full-Time Class of 2012

“I celebrated at the pub last night with the news, but then am taking advantage of a free day and doing homework and looking for jobs. Wish it was more exciting than that!”
– Emily Shubin, Full-Time Class of 2012

“Slept in (yay! no 8:30 class!) then caught up on ‘Castle’ via Hulu while having oatmeal with a cup of tea. Walked around Greenlake (now “Whitelake”?) to meet a friend for some decadent hot chocolate at Chocolati.”
– Gwyn Gaubatz, Full-Time Class of 2012

“Watching the two best soccer teams in the world, Real Madrid v Barca, at the George and Dragon with 15 MBAs, followed by an epic 15 minute snowball fight in Fremont – only a few casualities.”
– Colin Beazley, Full-Time class of 2012
