The weather here is amazing . . . wait, no, it’s terrible . . . er, actually, the weather in Vermont is anything but predictable. That’s why most Vermonters will give you the age-old adage, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” This is a state where April showers often come in May, and winter doesn't appear in late December, but anywhere between October and Thanksgiving. As far as clothes go, come prepared. Vermont can have simply wonderful weather, but it can also quickly turn dismal. Think of living in a place with temperatures ranging from 15 degrees below zero—not including wind chill—up to the 90s, not accounting for humidity. And don’t forget to bring some sort of boot for snow.
Some students love it, some hate it, but in actuality, it is the whole of this love-hate relationship that describes student’s feelings about the weather. People who live to ski are thrilled that Vermont has some of the best in the east. Those who are into hiking appreciate the colorful splashes of leaves in the autumn and the vibrant flowers in spring. And for the rest who enjoy water sports, Vermont also has sweltering hot and humid summers. There is indeed a little taste of everything for everybody.
