About three weeks ago my Meteorology professor told our class that the coldest week of the year is, on average, January 15th-20th.
Apparently 2015 is not the average year.
Just when we think we’re getting away with a pretty decent winter, BAM! We get hit with a snowstorm every single week. I kid you not, I haven’t had my Magazine Writing class since January 12th, the first day of the semester, because of all these snowstorms (well, and a holiday or two). My professor for that class is probably ready to rip her hair out at this point, and I don’t blame her. It’s not like we have make-up days in college. This weather has just been ridiculous.
My mom told me yesterday that Boston has gotten over ninety, NINETY, inches of snow from the past few storms. Not that we haven’t gotten our fair share here in Connecticut, but thank God I don’t live there.
Other than being bombarded with snow, we’re also just now experiencing freezing temperatures. Just the other morning my mom said it was -4º in the car when she went to work and today it was -27º with the wind chill! I am so, so thankful that today is President’s Day and I didn’t have to go to school or my internship. I’m sorry, but isn’t it supposed to start getting warmer as we work our way through February?! This winter can’t end fast enough.
It’s not just cold… it’s stupid cold.
