Yesterday was the first (best) day of snow this winter! (There were one or two other days where it snowed, but it never lasted very long.) I was stoked. Actually, sometimes I’m pretty 50/50 about the whole snow thing.
Pros include: seeing the snow that sticks to the top of the tree branches, the feeling of my boots stepping deep into a blanket of the fresh powdery stuff, and getting to layer up in all the knitted accessories I’ve been collecting. Cons include: driving in it, the aftermath of slush, and the feeling of snow melting off the tops of the tree branches and falling on top of my head.
However, I’ve added a HUGE pro to my list: Snowball fights. Yeah, this girl had never been in one before. I don’t know how I went three years at C of I without partaking in this snowy tradition, but it just never happened. But last night, a group of Andersonians (residents of the Anderson dorm) rallied together for an epic war. And it was great.
