Since October or November, this peculiar New Jersey weather has had me mildly concerned. Over the past few years, we have had snow storms as early as mid-October. This winter, there has been nothing. We barely even had a flurry… until today. It’s finally snowing.
The other day I was trying to figure out why this Winter Break felt so strange. Could it be from the constant-stress of planning how I was going to come out to each of my family members? What was making it feel so different? I eventually realized it must have something to do with the lack of snow.
I was disappointed when we didn’t have a white Christmas. Never in a million years did I think I’d return back to college before ever seeing a single snowflake fall. With only two days of break left, that was almost the case. Except, it is finally snowing. I was actually starting to really worry about the environment. Where has the snow been all this time?
Greetings, snow. Welcome back.
