Snow or No

Snow forts. Snow angels. Snow balls. Snow has finally arrived, and people are more excited than ever.

Seeing snow fall outside your window can put people in many moods. The most common one is excitement, but some people don’t feel that because they only think of how cold it is going to be.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “This winter, we expect to see above-normal temperatures in the United States, except for the southwest, where we’re predicting a colder-than-normal season.” This may be bad news for the warm weather lovers, but for the ones who enjoy a bit of cold air, this is good news.

Students at Bingham have been waiting for snow to appear, because when it begins to snow, skiing and snowboarding begin too. Donovan Scott, Dylan Taylor, and Jaxon Curtis: students at Bingham, have all been excited for the snow season to start. Taylor says he loves to drift his car in the snow. When you are skiing or snowboarding, “…the more snow the better”, says Scott.

Snow can either brighten your day, or ruin your day. From heavy traffic to numb toes, snow is to blame. In the winter, you can barely walk outside without having a cold breeze wake you up instantly, but is snow the cause of the cold weather? Snow only adds to cold weather. One of the main reasons it feels like needles poking your hands and feet is because of the wind.

“The Greatest Snow On Earth has been Utah’s catchphrase for years, and hasn’t been a disappointment. Utah has some of the best snow, so don’t let it go to waste. If it’s too cold, grab some snow gear and bundle up. This snow year is already off to a great start.
