Snow

Crowdsourcing the Blizzard

Whether this weekend's snowstorm turns out to be an historic blizzard of epic proportions or a meteorological letdown, we at Flyby are ready to make the most of it. While some of us have one foot out the door to line up at Burdick's, others will likely find themselves holed up indoors for a good part of this frosty weekend. That could get pretty boring. So whatever you're up to this weekend, whether inside or outside, warm or cold, we'd like to see it. What better way to enjoy a blizzard than to participate in a photo contest? You won't be in class, you won't be at Freshman Formal, and you won't be doing your reading, but chances are you will be Instagram-ing, and maybe even tweeting.
