About 45 minutes ago, my school finally got the first snowfall of the season, here in Western Mass.
And of course, being a skier I'm pumped. I haven't skied since last january when a nasty double eject/soccer put me out for the reason. So the return of winter has been long anticipated by me. I know a lot of you guys have been skiing for weeks now, and you guys go weekly. But for me thanks to school and location, i just don't have those options. So be thankful!
But anyways, it just seems like everyone loves snow. I walked around campus earlier just to feel it and look straight up and watch it fall. No matter what, everyone is happier when it's snowing. And even though i looked ridiculous and crazy, there had to be a dozen people out there just in front of my building alone. And tons of people were out walking or just standing there letting it fall on them. People said that once i started driving i'd stop liking snow as much, but i think the opposite has happened. Now that i have a car, everytime its snowing all i can think of going is loading up the car and heading north. I think snow is by far the most fascinating aspect of our weather.
And no, i'm not high. I just haven't seen snow in a long time so i'm celebrating it. Even without skiing, i still love just the snow itself. Now if you'll excuse me, i'm off to drink with some skier friends to toast the first fall.
