UIUC Quad in snow

Wow, today the midwest is getting pounded by a heck of a [snow storm](http://www.crh.noaa.gov/showsigwx.php?warnzone=ILZ045&warncounty=ILC019&firewxzone=ILZ045&local_place1=Urbana&product1=Blizzard+Warning) which, surprisingly enough, has resulted in the rare [cancellation](http://www.uiuc.edu/resources/announcement1.html) of the day’s classes here at the [U of I](http://www.uiuc.edu/).

Needless to say, I’m quite excited by the possibilities that a free day (and accompanying delay in coursework) offers.

By the end of this day, I hope to write my poor and neglected blog once more and am resolved to make further progress on the actively developing of [LaserLine 2.0](http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/projects/LaserLine).

Update: According to the [Daily Illini](http://media.www.dailyillini.com/media/storage/paper736/news/2007/02/13/News/University.Cancels.All.Classes.Due.To.Weather.Conditions-2715763.shtml), this last happened in [1979](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1979). (thanks [Joey](http://www.joeyhagedorn.com/))
Update: I [now](http://www.uiuc.edu/resources/announcement3.html) have wednesday off as well, this is indeed unheard of.
