I recall walking out of night class at St. Ben's (St. Joe, MN) and found that a couple inches of snow had already fallen. Stopped off at a party on the way back to my house to wet my whistle. I really wasn't planning to celebrate Halloween but quickly changed my mind...everybody was kind of hyped up with Halloween and all the snow. I think we were all hoping for the elusive snow day to become a reality. After a quick stop a home to change into my Green Giant rain slicker and hard hat I spent the rest of the night at one of the fine establishments in St. Joe. I remember waking up in the morning and screaming "snow day" w/ my roomies. It seemed like a lot of fun at first and then we realized how much snow there was and nobody owned a shovel. It really was a pain in the ass to get between St. Joe and the SJU campus. That Saturday or Sunday the SJU basketball team played a squad from Brazil at SJU. The Brazilians had quite the adventure up I-94 on their team bus. As the story goes they helped push about a half dozen cars out of the ditch on the drive up to Collegeville. They must have thought we were crazy to live in Minnesota.
