As the calendar reads "December" and the holidays creep ever closer, we know winter is near, but sometimes it can be hard to tell in New Orleans. On Wednesday (Dec. 2) the Tulane School of Science and Engineering hosted the second annual Snow Day on the Monroe quad on the uptown campus.
About 6,000 pounds of manufactured snow turned a patch of green into a field of white and students enjoyed snowball fights usually reserved for chillier climes.
Who knows, maybe the faux snow will portend real white stuff, as it did last year?
