There are three things you should know about Aggieland:
- It’s the friendliest place you’ll ever visit (unless you boo, walk on the grass, don’t take off your hat, don’t say “Howdy,” etc.)
- You will always get stuck waiting on a train if you’re running late
It never snows
College Station (and lots of places across central and south Texas) got a rare blanket of snow on Thursday night, and in true Texan fashion, we Aggies were totally cool about it and didn’t freak out at all.
