Duking it Out in the Snow

I don't care what you say, Minnesota has had a horrendous winter. Now, I'm not a meteorologist or anything, but I would estimate that we have had a billion inches of snow -- it was enough to collapse the Metrodome roof, after all.

Nonetheless, University of Minnesota students were able to have a little fun Friday after our latest snow dump earlier in the week. It was more of a "hurling big chunks of white powder at one another" kind of a snowball fight since 13 degrees outside. Though people really got into it and some even decided to target me... It was like reporting from a war zone.
