Well, here's a story: one time, it was 60 degrees at the end of January, and another time, we got snow in April. It can be boiling hot one day and sweater weather the next. It can even happen from day to night. We've got all the seasons here: winter, spring, summer, fall, Indian summer, and back to winter again-it's a vicious cycle. Winter seems to hang on the longest, what with all the snow we get that absolutely refuses to leave. There's generally a snowfall before Thanksgiving and a final smack in the face from winter sometime in March. But it's anybody's guess what can happen in between. It rains a lot during the between seasons, so bring your umbrella-actually, bring two, because those things are so easy to lose.
The campus does look pretty gorgeous during the fall and in the winter while the snow is still white. We get some good thunderstorms every now and then, and it feels so good when the campus thaws in the springtime and people start coming out of their dorm rooms again. Changing seasons are exciting; plus, it's a tried and true conversation starter.
