To add to the scare of the first snowfall, the amount of residents who lost power was outrageous. My boyfriend's neighborhood and many others had lost power Sunday evening. Before the power completely shut off, it flickered on and off like strobe lights for approximately 10 seconds. It seemed to be an act of Krampus, the evil Santa!! As for Monday, I thought for sure that we would have a snow day, but we all ended up attending school... but only for 3 hours. I was in the middle of an assignment when the power went out for the majority of Cedar Springs. It was like a message from the god's that we were supposed to have a snow day, and this was karma! Of course most people enjoy snow days, but I also like the adrenaline I receive from snow storms and power outages. There's something about the dark chaos in the crowded high school and the slippery nighttime driving that excites me.
