Crazy Weather

So how are we all making out in this wild ride of weather? One day it’s nice and sunny, and it almost feels like you can wear shorts, then the next, it’s below freezing. I thought we had it bad when we got the little snow that put the highways in gridlock, but just the other day, we got some light freezing drizzzle that also wreaked havoc on us. Why is it that we can’t seem to get it together when this weather arises? The meteorologists are forewarning us, yet we are on the roads as if we’re clueless. I hope this weather is not affecting the students of Fontbonne too drastically. We’re halfway through the winter, and we’ve just started to experience bad weather. It will soon be over. The birds will be chirping and green grass growing. My how I can’t wait for those days!

Scary Weather

by Angela on April 20, 2011

Hello, Fontbonne, I just wanted everyone to be alert and be careful with the latest round of spring storms we have coming. According to a lot of newscasters this is going to be very severe and come out of nowhere. Be sure to be prepared to take shelter. I’m not sure how it works in dorms, but you should also make sure that your belongings are protected in case of loss; so if you’re renting, be sure to obtain renter’s insurance. If you have questions, I can help you out with information.  Of course, if you’re a homeowner, you should have insurance to cover your home. If you have a nice car that you would like to protect in the case of maybe hail damage or other weather instances, don’t forget to add comprehensive (other than collision) onto your auto insurance policy. Protect yourself so that you won’t have to start over alone. Be Safe!

I hope for those of you who are not from St. Louis that this strange weather is not getting you down. I will say that the snow yesterday was winter’s last hoo-rah! Spring will bolt in quickly, and we will all be able to pull out our flip flops and put the boots and coats away. So I say to you, don’t let the weather get you down. It will be over soon.

These legends were recognized today 2/15/11 with the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a civilian in America.  They both play significant parts in American history and both come from different walks of life. I’m impressed by them both.  I’m a St. Louisan, born and raised, so of course I’m a Cardinal’s fan. I’m glad Stan is around and of sound mind and body in order to be able to enjoy his honor. Maya Angelou also has ties to St. Louis, born here in 1928  She’s a beautiful woman inside and out. I hope that many of you who have the opportunity will take time to research information on these two icons.

Graduation December 2010

by Angela December 21, 2010

Graduation was held on December 18, 2010, on campus at Fontbonne. I believe this is the first year that they separated the ceremonies of bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I received my master’s so the ceremony was that morning. I had such a wonderful time. I was able to invite all of my family instead of [...]

Fontbonne’s Christmas Around Campus

by Angela December 7, 2010

I attended the festival with my 2-yea- old daughter and 2-year-old cousin.  I have to say that we enjoyed every aspect of the festival. They were fascinated by the huge glow balls that you could climb into. It was freezing out but we still partook of the petting zoo and the carriage ride. The chilli [...]

Holidays

by Angela November 22, 2010

I have lots of good memories of Christmas past. I was wondering, what’s your favorite Christmas song, Christmas story or Christmas tradition? My favorite song is Silent Night (The Tempations version). My favorite story is The Night Before Christmas and my favorite tradition is meeting up with my family on Christmas Eve so that we [...]
