Road tripping with friends is supposed to be fun and exciting. It gives me an opportunity to jump in the car and explore somewhere or something that I have never experienced. My 2003 trip to Chicago was both nerve wrecking and exciting at the same time because I got to be in certain situations that I have never been in before.
11 Colleges With Incredibly Bad Weather
While some students enjoy classes in beautiful climates, others find themselves trekking to the library in snowstorms, extreme heat, or rain. Although these schools offer a great education, their weather leaves something to be desired. Check out these 11 schools with the worst weather.
Loyola: Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Loyola weather has the worst of both worlds. Every few years, there’s a big snowstorm, and the grocery stores get mobbed. Loyola students pay their dues in the cold winters, but don’t get a break in the summer — there’s plenty of humidity, and temperatures up to 100 degrees. Baltimore is subject to tropical storms and hurricanes, as well as the rare tornado.
UNLV: Sometimes, going to school in Vegas is awesome, but other times, not so much. When it rains, it really pours, and the winds can be extreme. And before you start thinking you’ll go to the desert of Vegas to escape snow, know that Vegas can still get slammed with record snowfalls.
The weather forecasts play an important part in human lives, especially when we are trying to book for some kind of outdoor activity. But can we always rely on the TV weather broadcast? Luckily, there are several weather forecast reporting devices that we can use.
Forgotten childrens classics make for good summer reads
FORGOTTEN CHILDREN’S CLASSICS MAKE FOR GOOD SUMMER READS Summer reading is my favorite kind of reading, a time when books exist solely for enjoyment, for transporting ourselves from the breezy heat of the old porch swing, or from the rainy day window seat framed by flowery drapes, into another land or time period. Even better when it can be shared with children who, but for a good book, are quick to pronounce their boredom with the slower pace of life this time of year. I have rediscovered two books, decades-old classics, that I’m sure may be new to many children and adults alike. And even if there’s not a child in your immediate vicinity, I find these two stories to be so impactful and memorable as to be enjoyed by any age. The first one is “Across Five Aprils” by Irene Hunt, published in 1964. It is a coming-of-age story set during the Civil War. It follows the wartime experiences of Midwestern farm boy Jethro Creighton.
