  • Extra Points: Snow Delays

        This past weekend has been crazy between games and activities being canceled because of snow and schedules being rearranged. Snow is my least favorite part of winter. I don’t really mind the cold but I do mind the snow.
        Maybe I’d like snow if there weren’t so many people out on the road thinking they can drive normally in the snow, or if we actually took care of roads better, or if things didn’t just close down because a snowflake fell.

  • Extra Points: New Year

            Now that the New Year is officially here and everyone is transitioning into 2017, let the mistakes of writing 2016 on the date line be minimal. Every year, I have the worst time when I go to write the date. I write the previous years date. Once I notice, I typically laugh to myself about it and correct it.
