On Friday morning, the beautiful and awe inspiring miracle of snowfall occurred for the first time in South Florida since 1977 right in Florida Atlantic University’s own S.E. Wimberly Library. Temperatures at the Wimberly Library have been known to be quite cold, but this was a new low.
The spectacle began around six o’clock in the morning, covering the floors with a thin sheet of snow which the staff happily made snow angels in. “It’s hard to believe,” Gushed Alexis Monroe, member of the faculty at the Wimberly, who was rolling the snow on her desk together to make a snowman. “I always knew it was only a matter of time before the snow came.”
Despite the elation from the staff, some students were not as excited. One of these students was an extremely frustrated Peter Conway. “I mean, honestly. Who sets the temperature in a library to thirty degrees? I could have died or something,” he said, casually teetering on the ledge of the third floor balcony.
At press time, the layers of snow in the Wimberly had piled up so high that nobody could reach the exit, which didn’t change anything since students were stuck inside studying anyways.
