How We All Felt About Snow in October

Back in late October, you made your way to class and you tried to stay focused, but kept daydreaming about how psyched you were for Halloweekend, and how cute you and your friends would look in your matching Disney-related costumes. You knew that you just couldn't pay attention to the lecture, so you stared out the window when suddenly you noticed little white things falling from the sky. 

You thought you were seeing things. It had to be pine needles or something, you thought. You tried to turn your focus back to the lecture, but a few of your classmates exclaimed and pointed to the window like:

Then the bus you took back got stuck in the snow. 

You got back to your dorm and instantly ordered snow boots online.

And you spent hours trying to locate suitable clothes for a UMass Winter.

You saw your friends’ posts on Facebook about how beautiful the snow was.

You spent the night mentally preparing yourself to face the next day's undeniable snowstorm.

And you woke up the next day to find that all the snow had melted.
