February 2003

Initials of the fantastic five, the original five digits of the SBG hand:
(Dr. & idealist) JJF, (angry webmaster) DO, (the human snowblower) CJ, (Reverend) NM, (ideologue, subversive, provocateur, architect) JC
- all responsible for the "PEACE" project below.

Unfortunately a light dusting of snow thereafter subtlely obscured the work.

The caption reads: "Members of the university community rose from their beds Wednesday morning to find the word 'peace' etched into the snow on the side of Horse Barn Hill. The 'peace' sign was visible to travelers on Route 195 and to residents of Towers."

All inspired by this:
“My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we are giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence."
Secretary of State Colin Powell before the United Nations, 2/5/03

On the night of Tuesday, February 11, 2003, five guys spent about five hours carving five big letters into a snowy hillside in Storrs, CT. And just like that, the Soggy Boot Gang was born.
