Snow Storm Approaches This Weekend

In case you haven’t seen yet, a pretty significant winter storm is approaching New England this weekend, threatening to dump everywhere from 6 inches to 2 feet of snow on the Boston/Cambridge area.

We want to encourage everyone to stay safe this weekend!   Limit your travel as needed, keep an eye on the MBTA so you know if transportation is still a good option to get around the city, and stock up on snacks and essentials (just in case!).

If your student organization is planning on having an event this weekend, take a second look at your audience, where they are coming from, and whether this storm coming in affects the safety of your attendees.  If so, consider postponing your event for a later date.  If you need to cancel your event this weekend for any reason, walk, don’t run, to the nearest computer and email campus-activities@mit.edu to work with the CAC on figuring out a new date and venue for your event.  CAC and SAO want to ensure that you event is not only successful, but also safe.

Apart from staying safe and warm, enjoy what will hopefully be a pretty (heavy and thick) blanket of snow over our area this weekend.  Stay inside, hangout with friends, catch up on your first week of P-sets, read a good book, sip on some hot chocolate.  Additionally, if there is place where you can roll some snow-people or snow-creatures up, here is some inspiration from my personal favorite, Calvin and Hobbes.  Enjoy, stay warm, and stay safe!
