Seeing as we’ve been struggling to find this season we call Spring, I thought it would be relevant to get everyone’s opinions on the weather we’ve been dealing with. I think these photos say it all. But really? I mean, coming to Oswego, I expected a few snowy days. But this is getting a little ridiculous. Can the weather pleeeease make up its mind?!
I’m from Buffalo, so I’ve dealt with snow since I was little. We’ve even had snow storms in October. But these past 3 years at Oswego have been really mild. I think I just have it ingrained in my head now that the Oswego snow was just a myth. Of course, my last year at school would be a wake up call to the reality of our school’s unapoligetic freezingness.
I think Oswego should be picked up and moved further south- kinda like in that episode of Spongebob. Maybe I just need to relocate to the south for the rest of my 6 years at grad-school.
There’s so many complaints we could dish out about the snow here, but we can account for a whole bunch of positives to take away from this situation as well. Snow ball fights, igloos, snow-men (or snow-women if you really have ambition). My roommates and I actually had such initiative one day 2 weeks ago and decided to make a snow-man outside our house in the Village. We ended up throwing my halloween costume on him and turned him into a bearded snow-man. Thinking it would be a good idea, I soon found out that it turned into an all out snow war between us. So cheer up, and make the most of this winter snow globe that we call Oswego! Be creative. Embrace it. You really have no choice but to embrace it at this point. It looks like the snow is here to stay.
Don’t be afraid to dish about the weather. It’s a big part of our school and it’s image. If you’ve been blown into a snow bank, slipped on an ice patch, tackled a friend into a snow pile, or just made a few snow angels, don’t be afraid to share!
