Am I REALLY living in Provo?!

I forgot where I am living... I have never experienced any of these strange phenomenons before...
  • There were only 3 other people on the bus when I rode to campus the other day for a taste test (compared to a bus packed so full that the driver wouldn't start going until everyone figured out how to stand behind the white line.)
  • The only sound on campus was birds singing sweetly to each other.
  • It is possible to find a Y lot parking place.
  • The laundromat was silent... seriously!  Just me and the laundry machines.
  • I wake up to hear nothing.  The super busy street is abandoned at night.
  • The normal stores seem empty.  (Winco and Wal-mart--still crazy!)
  • Our ward has drastically shrank in size.
  • The temple parking lot has open spaces.
  • "For Rent" signs have overpopulated the grass.
Oh yes, I know what the cause of this unusual experience is--it is SUMMER and all of the students move home.  Provo, as much as you hate it, you are for SURE a college town!  (And I LOVE it because I LOVE being a student at BYU!)
