Hokie Snow

Thing One was getting lots of snow in Blacksburg at Virginia Tech the same time we were having our big snow bonanza this past weekend so I asked him to send some snow pictures.  He first sent me this one (from his dorm room window) which I told him was about as lame as it comes and that I certainly hope he's putting more effort into school than he is in taking snow pictures for his mother's blog:

Gee thanks Thing One

So then he sent me these pic's ......good job honey!  You're redeemed!!  Thank-you. 

Thing One focused most of these pictures on the central feature of the campus which is the Virginia Tech drillfield.  It's at the heart of the campus; one could easily argue it is the heart of Virginia Tech landscapically (ok so that's not an actual word, but it should be) speaking.  And no offense to Thing One but pictures really don't do the drillfield justice.  It's huge; it's the most spectacular gathering point; it's fringed with one hundred year-old trees (maybe older, just guessing?); it has classroom buildings on one side and dormitories on the other (all built in famous Hokie Stone); at one end of the drillfield is the Virginia Tech War Memorial and the other end is open to the rest of the campus.  It is beloved by the students and apparently at least one parent because until this very moment I had no idea how much I [heart] that drillfield.  Suffice to say it's practically profound!

Get it?  Red Bull gives you wings ....cute

I know it's not right, but I love the sign. If kids would only use that creativity in the classroom. (Assuming it was kids.)

Wow! Beautiful pictures! How was the conference? Thought of you all, WISH I could've been there! Also, the red bull picture was definitely my favorite!!

that's J-O-S-H said...

Good jerb to whoever vandalized that sign! Defacing public property is perfectly acceptable if it somehow makes the object cooler.

Wow, you guys think so? I just took them from my phone while walking to class = ) and yeah, I figure the red bull sign was kids but I don't quite know. I thought it was funny so I took a picture.
