First Snow!

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

October 11th, 2018, the day of first snowfall in Duluth, MN! I woke up this morning to see the familiar white, fluffy stuff on the ground. I was a little shocked because I was not aware it was going to snow last night since it has been raining for the past week or so straight. Though I know this little bit of snow will not last long, it has me thinking of the winter ahead, and reminds me it is time to put my shovel, scraper, and sand in my car so I can drive in the snow. I like the snow, but I think it is a little too early to hang around; Thanksgiving and beyond, bring on the snow!

Spring, Where are you?

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Oh Duluth, how I love living here. However, it is spring, but we are buried in snow still. Not to mention the below-freezing temperatures and blowing wind everyday. Even through all the blustery wind and snow, Duluth is still a very beautiful city. With the extension of winter, I have been fortunate enough to be able to continue to snowboard at Spirit Mountain here in Duluth. The downside of the fact that I can still snowboard in April is that soccer practice keeps getting cancelled. As a team, we were so excited to start practicing outdoors again, but so far 2 of our 4 practices have been postponed due to the weather. With the continuation of winter, I have been able to go for walks along Lake Superior to look at the ice that is still on all the rocks and in the harbor, which is very beautiful. Duluth, I love you, but winter has to go. I am ready for spring!

What’s Up with the Weather Duluth?

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

So typically May in Duluth is really warm. Picture finals week: a bunch of freshman tanning up on the penthouse (they’ve probably dragged the couches out too), upperclassman laying on the Science Lawn studying, etc. Then June is normally like April again. However since I’ve been in Duluth, it has been SUN SUN SUN.  I am SO happy. Normally, it doesn’t get this hot until July. I even packed tons of sweaters to last through June! What does this mean for me? More days reading at the Lakewalk of course!

May 1st!

Monday, May 1st, 2017

It’s snowing. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love snow… But there comes a point where I don’t want to see it for three months straight unless I go on a vacation to the arctic. I don’t want to see it on May 1st. It’s not a lot. The picture hardly shows the white flecks, but still, it’s May 1st!!!!! Oh Duluth, you are a crazy city. 

Snow Day

Today I woke up for my 3rd to last day of student teaching and I had a text from my cooperating teacher: No school today.
