Students react to Internet outages
Hope for a snow day and concern that the world is ending.
- Some students hoped the inclement weather, coupled with the Internet outage, would mean that there would be a snow day or that spring break would start a few days early. Many schools are taking midterm exams this week, and students also complained about how they couldn't do their homework:
