Dude- would you mind laying off on the snow for a second? I mean, we understand this is peak season for extreme Northmidwestern weather or whatever, but don't you realize there are visiting scholars in you trying to get the lay of your land? And though one particular visiting scholar may be an intrepid explorer (indeed even if such a scholar may be classified as something of an extreme sportsman and is known to be mostly impervious to weather of any type), if your snowfall is such that your major University is completely SHUT DOWN due to white-out conditions then how is a scholar expected to be able to explore campus, check out the facilities and do the whole requisite meet n' greet that was the reason the graduate program invited him to visit you in the first place? Can you answer me THAT, Minneapolis?
What I'm trying to say here is how are we supposed to know whether we want to live in you? Could you please just tidy it up for a day (make that Friday, March 2, if you would) so that the intrepid, scholarly half of this team can do what he came to you to get done?
That'd be terrif.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. He says he had a pretty rad time there today, by the way. Could be he felt a little isolated as apparently he was the only guy walking around out of doors in this weather, but so far as I can tell from him it sounds like you could be a pretty okay city...
