What Is Snow?

70 degrees, camels, and Butler. What? Yes, today on December 3rd it is 70 degrees outside, there are camels on campus, and this is at Butler. This is not typically how Indiana weather works, but this week the temperatures are not dropping below the 50’s for the high, which is awesome.

To explain the camels it’s a Butler twitter joke. This years past family weekend brought a little day of stress when some people running away from the police decided to come onto Butler campus. Thankfully they were caught and sent to jail, but in the midst of this the BU Police twitter sent out a tweet that said something along the lines of “suspect at large, last seen running towards camel.” Well while most of us tried to figure out when did we get a camel, we soon realized that what the police officer actually meant was canal. The canal which runs through our campus is where the suspect was seen heading towards. After the Butler Camel became a sort of inside joke for Butler students and now the Butler Camel even has it’s own twitter.

In the midst of all this craziness, my class (the sophomore class) executive board thought it would brighten it mood of students who are facing the struggles of finals to see some actual camels on campus, and so today there was not one, not two, not three, but four camels.

As if the weather could not be crazy enough, we thought we would just spice it up a little more with some camels. Enjoy.
