We love snow. Whether it’s the kids crafting snowmen in the front yard or the adults praying for a day off work, there’s just something magical about those tiny white ice crystals that fall from the sky. Even rapper Jay-Z says he “used to move snowflakes by the oz.” (Oh boy. We’ve just been informed that he wasn’t actually talking about snow. Nevermind then.) Well if you haven’t heard yet, Towson is expecting a HUGE snowstorm this week. Here                                                               are the 10 best sledding spots on campus!
