Snow generates mixed reactions

Ben Foster, Assistant Business Manager

With each and every snow flake comes a different shape that is beautiful in it’s own separate way. And with different snowflakes come different snow related activities, whether it’s sledding or shoveling your old grandmother’s pathway so she doesn’t slip and fall.

For Harry Garber ’16, it’s about when and how much snow falls during the week that could potentially mean a snow day. “When Dr. Landon pulls the plug, it is actually so awesome because I get to stay home from school, drink hot coco, snowball fight with the boys, and chat with my friends on AIM,” said Garber.

Snow isn’t always fun and games though, for some students they find themselves in a tough situation and would rather actually be in school. One student is sick and tired of dealing with the aftermath of the fallen snow.

“I’m not always a huge fan of snow days because I always have to end up shoveling my walkway and road  just so I could leave my house. It takes a really long time and I don’t like it. By the end of the day, I have a terrible headache and barely have time to even do my homework,” Brian MacCordy ’17 exclaimed.

Either way, snowfall is inevitable in the northeast. Charlotte Caccamise ’16 would like us to watch it fall as she explained it isn’t a problem until it hits the ground.

“Snowfall is exquisite in every way possible. Yes, within hours after it falls it  turns black and slushy and leads to accidents but it’s important to remember to live in the moment and watch it descend from the grey sky in beauty,”Caccamise said. “Keep in mind there is attraction in everything at some point.”
