Winter is Coming

Okay, Game of Thrones cliches aside, winter is rapidly approaching. It’s okay, I’m not ready either. I still keep trying to wear t-shirts outside. I always regret this decision. But winter in Duluth, specifically at Saint Scholastica has its own quirks.

Most notably, the White Stripes of Death. I’ve never heard cross walks referred to as this before coming here. But being a survivor of these terrors, I can tell you that the danger is very real. The amount of bruised ego from falling down on my butt a countless amount of times will never truly heal.

Every big snowfall there’s going to be at least one person pulling donuts in the big lot. Yes, you can get a great view from the parking lot-side suites. Yes, my roommates and I spent more than one evening sipping hot drinks and watching this happen freshmen year. No, we never saw anybody actually damage their or anybody else’s car while doing this.

Snow days. We had so many of them freshmen year. There is little more beautiful in life then waking up to cancelled classes, fresh snow, and a quiet campus.

And the cold. For the love of all things good there is normal cold and then there is Duluth cold. Brace yourselves.

    Yikes, I am not looking forward to the dreaded Duluth winter, though it’s going to be my first snow experience…

    Wish me luck!
