For the past two weeks the weather has been unpredictable. First it was really, really, really, cold (like I had to drive to the library cold), then it kind of leveled out for a day or so. It was pretty bearable until it started raining a couple days ago. It was raining slightly at first and was still cold, so everything on campus was covered in a thin sheet of ice (slightly dangerous). There was even a couple people ice skating on the rugby field!
I personally love winter, so I look forward to the snowy days, the bitter cold, the great skiing, and of course the sweaters. Unfortunately all the rain washed away the beautiful snow!
While Union’s campus is always gorgeous, there’s just something special about a sheet of bright white snow over everything that brings it to another level. While it was a nice break to be able to walk around campus in just a light vest instead of my winter jacket, I was missing the snow. Especially considering it’s the middle of January! It’s supposed to snow!
Lucky for me, when I woke up this morning there was a fresh blanket of powdery snow across campus! Everything looked so beautiful. Even though I did have to layer up to go outside, it was worth it to see campus looking so beautiful. Every time I walked outside I saw multiple students stopping to take photos of the Nott. I may be a junior, but I still take at least one photo on campus a day! Can you blame me?
As if my day wasn’t already made due to the snow, I even ran into someone on campus that had a brand new tiny little puppy! Added bonus!
