The first snow


  With the first snowfall of the season occurring on Saturday, October 28th, many can say winter is quickly approaching. However, since it is only October, students within our school have opinions on how the wintery weather impacts them and Halloween.

  The weather played a major role in deciding whether or not people were able to go through with their plans for the Halloweekend. “I had a big thing planned with my friends but it was canceled due to the snow. My friends and I were going to go airsofting,” said junior Juilen Meijer. While he was unable to go through with his plans, that was not the case for everyone, “I do wish the snow would have come a little later, it was kind of inconvenient it being Halloweekend, but I did not have any plans that were canceled, fortunately.” said senior Ava Davis. 

  “I’m glad it snowed before Halloween because snow just makes everything better,” said freshman Maya DeJong. While some students such as DeJong enjoy the early snow, others wish the snow would have happened after Halloween. 

  “I don’t like that the snow is coming before Halloween because I don’t want to trick or treat in the snow and I wish it was still warm outside,” said senior Megan Guttenberg. Sophomore Justin Somers agrees.“I was kind of hoping we would have a warmer Halloween this year just because the last few years have been freezing,” Somers said.

  Although the snow arriving before Halloween is something not everyone is happy about, that means it is almost time to start bringing back winter activities, “My favorite winter activity is staying in bed with a candle and some hot chocolate and reading a good book,” said junior Payton Sears. While Sears and others enjoy spending their winter indoors, others take advantage of the cold weather and head outside, “My favorite thing to do in the snow is probably making sled jumps and going off of them,” said Somers. Sledding is a popular winter activity among students who are active in the outdoors during the winter. 

  “I love the snow so much! I am a seasonal person and I love when I can tell that the seasons are changing!” said Davis, she like many others, is waiting for more snow to fall and winter to make its stay.
