Nemo: A Blizzard in Pictures

Posted by Michael Rekola on 02/11/2013 at 04:52 PM

Over the weekend, us New Englanders got slammed by a storm named after a Disney cartoon character.  Although the weather service has stated that the Nemo was named for its Ancient Latin definition (“No one or No Man”), it afforded me the opportunity (or the pain, however you see it) to catch up on some of my classes like Federal Income Tax.  Although my house was luckily saved from various power outages and the freezing temperatures, I was snowed in with my law books, a package of Oreos, and our dog Monty.   Unfortunately many of my law school friends and fellow students were not so lucky and are still trying to get back to a normal Law School week.  Below are a few photos from the terrible storm with an equally terrible name.

Grilled Cheese, warm tomato soup, and some fries-- comfort food to weather out the storm

 

Last but not least, my Fed Tax book
