Midway through last week, it appeared that April showers were bringing May flowers, and the campus was alive with activity as students and faculty alike enjoyed what appeared to be the first signs of spring.
"I was planning to take my seminar outside," one professor noted, "but three-fourths of the class skipped to play Frisbee anyway."
Case Green was filled with students picnicking, playing catch, and walking tight ropes, and a select few were even seen doing some of their homework.
"It's just so great when the weather is like this," Kelly Lightly '16 said in a statement to the Skidmore News. "It really brings people out of their houses and brings them together."
However, things took a turn last night when the weather pulled off what some are calling the most devious, elaborate April Fools joke in Skidmore history. At approximately 3:15 am Sunday morning, snow began to fall over campus, sending dozens back inside and keeping them there for the remainder of what turned out to be a very chilly, windy Sunday afternoon. Winter was still here after all.
In a statement to the Skidmore News, the weather said, "Gotcha, bitches."
