We had a good bit of climate change in Knoxville today. My roommate Peter was camped out in the law school all day long, and when he came back home around midnight he got ambushed by a drunken mob of about one hundred students throwing snowballs at his car. I guess that’s what you get for studying too much.

Supposedly, he was going to fight them, but then he got scared because there were one hundred of them and one of him. Also, he decided that the snowballs had not actually damaged his car like he initially worried.

I tried fashioning a sled out of a laundry basket, but it didn’t work. So sad. 😦 I guess I should have been better prepared, with a real sled.

My other roommate Yonicio and I did get some pretty decent sledding in the next night. Using my amazing intellectual expertise, I managed to fashion a marvelous sled out of an auto drip pan from Wal-Mart.

We also ran across some people who had some other pretty rockin’ sleds they were willing to share, including a sweet table-sled that seemed to be the fastest of all.

    OK, so this is the sledding you talked about in e-mail. Neat.
