Snow days don’t arrive often in Louisiana, much to the chagrin of area youngsters who welcome a day off from school. Quite a few grown-ups like snow days, too, though one of the grim lessons of adulthood is that work delayed doesn’t simply disappear.

Not surprisingly, the planned weekend sessions aren’t popular with students. But even at LSU, life can’t always be fun, though Mardi Gras is only weeks away.
