Winter haters

Posted by: | October 27, 2014 | No Comment |

Every time the weather gets the slightest bit chilly in the fall, people freak out about the weather being cold. Personally, I love cold weather and I cannot wait for the snow. I just don’t get why people are such winter haters. If you hate winter weather, don’t live where it is cold.


My photo – this week Tuesday 10/28/14 will be a toasty 79 degrees while Saturday will be a frosty 46 degrees. That’s Fairfax, VA for you.

Of course, Northern Virginia is one of those places where the seasons seem to change day to day. It can go from being 70 degrees one day, to 50 degrees the next day, and then back up to 80-90 degrees a day later. I just don’t get our weather patterns. I understand why people complain that the weather makes it hard to dress (because it really does) but I just can’t understand cold complainers.




Who doesn’t like to wrap themselves in a nice, warm coat and pick up a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks? Those Ugg boats and faux fur lined jackets are just screaming to escape your closet.

When I was applying to colleges, I was looking at schools in the New England area of the U.S. and I asked a college representative how much snow they get on average. They looked at me sideways and said a few feet…and avoided my eyes. I told them I love snow and was hoping to get a lot and then they said, oh yes well it snows quite a few feet at a time actually. They knew that potentially telling someone that they get a lot of snow means they might not want to apply! Certainly not me.

And the best part of being in school during the winter is the insane amount of snow days we seem to get. Of course, having make up days sucks – but I always remember to just enjoy the time I have off when I can spend it in front of a fire with a cup of cocoa. And maybe even a good book.
