DES MOINES, Iowa — Friday was a soggy move out day for freshmen students at Drake University.
“We just got soaked while moving everything out. We live on the fourth floor, so we were walking a long time on the cat walk,” student Becca Dwyer said.
It was either move in the rain or wait for it to stop. Those who waited were sent into a mad dash. The rain stopped around 1 p.m. with an official move out deadline at 3:45 p.m.
Some only had a short time to pull off all the work.
“It made it a little interesting. We were getting a late start. Seems like we have a lot more moving out than when we moved in,” parent Amy Halleran said.
