The weather is taking its toll

Magnifying glass

Apparently we are all having a bit of trouble keeping up with the weather. Whether itís rain ruining your ski weekend or ice complicating your outdoor errands, you canít count on the outdoors to comply with your plans.

Electrical Engineering student George Zhou captured the tragic uncertainty of the temperature in this shot. A cyclist taking advantage of a temporary thaw was thwarted by a blizzard. The wayward meanderings of a sidewalk snowplow added injury to the insult.

Come springtime, these fallen steeds begin to pile up along sidewalks, revealed along with five months of snow-covered detritus. This lone carcass represents the beginning of the end of winter.
