Whatever happened to the threat of wintry mix that churned out little more than a magical late-night dusting? For the past few weeks, the forecast has been outright blizzard, and the suffering of shoveling and deepest of winter blues have wracked the region. Harvard saw its fair share of snow woes — events were canceled on more than one occasion, and workers busily cleared sidewalks of snow and ice. But, surely as the days are getting longer, the sun will rise again! Snow will melt! Trips to the Caribbean will be bought, and mucho margaritas will be drunk!
