Sending well-wishes to Hizzoner
Since I only took one meteorology class at Penn State, a general ed-level course, I was not taught the axiom that if the highest ranking elected official was away in winter, it would snow. I have submitted an inquiry to my professor via social media — I’ll update if I hear back from him.
In all serious, I’m wishing Mayor Justin Wilson a full recovery and a safe, efficient return to the city. We need you!
