ahh someone reconized 1996-2000.
good ole' dekalb. i never miss the university on the corn field.
my freshman year it was -13 below with a -55 windchill. the dorms are a minimum 20 minute brisk walk from the nearest classroom building. needless to say.. i was *sick* for two days until it was above 0.
my sophmore year a derecho slammed into campus.. .umimpeded by the adjacent corn fields. 90 mph winds blew my dorm neighbors window out and all his stuff on the floor. like a tv and stereo.
my junior year another derecho hit during campus welcome week. all the tents and displays in the MLK commons were destroyed a couple people got injured.
my senior year i remember it being rather calm...
btw, in 1995 in the middle of july it rained 10 inches in 8 hrs in dekalb.. .massive flooding all over campus.
is that town cursed?
bturk: are you referring mendelman HIMSELF as a women. if so you are right.
