Students last month were snowed in during the historic, Winter Storm Uri. The Houstonian asked students on campus how they dealt with the unusual weather conditions.
“It was a little easy staying sane because I was with my roommate for most of the time. Having company during that time really helped to keep me occupied but whenever I was at my friend’s house I just relaxed, caught up on some shows, and tried to be positive about the situation.”
“I stayed at home with my animals for the duration of the freeze. I had a pipe burst in my apartment on that Wednesday and stayed throughout that as well.”
“Because I am an RA, I couldn’t leave. I had to work and assist the residents with anything that they needed. My coworkers and I got really close. We were just playing monopoly.”
“The most challenging part would probably be no water. Not being able to shower was the worst.”
