Cold Weather

Tuesday was one of those days that I began to question my decision to attend SUNY Oswego, and as a freshman, I am aware that that is a very premature statement to make, since I am completely unaware of what winters are actually like here. However, I just can’t believe the wind here, and what’s worse is you don’t just get wind, you get wind and rain, so going outside leaves you with no choice but to get wet, because you can’t use an umbrella because of the wind.

It was just one of those days that really made me start thinking about the winter. Wednesday sort of played its part as well because of how cold it was. I couldn’t believe how I was dressed in October! All I know is that experiencing winters here is definitely going to be an interesting experience, and it’s going to take a lot of adaptation, adaptation that I am hoping is a lot easier than it seems right now.

  1. haha Chris! I’m sure as a freshman you get the “Welcome to Oswego” a lot from other people when you mention the wind but this is my fourth winter here and it still takes my breath away! (and I STILL question my decision to come here!) You’ll get used to it, I promise! :)

  2. Chris, I just found out about your blog through the alumni e-newsletter. Great work here. Just to add my two cents, Oswego is a good school, so you will eventually get used to the weather. You’ll bundle up in the windy snow of January only to get to class and sweat for 20 minutes while your body adjusts to the cranked-up heat inside. It’s all part of the experience.
