As winter TECHNICALLY comes to an end and we celebrate the first day of spring, Alison shared her thoughts on the white stuff we call snow!
“After living the last two years in the tropical climate of Nicaragua and growing up in temperate Georgia, I wasn’t sure what to expect for my first ‘northern winter’. The first time it snowed I was elated! It was October and there were still golden leaves on the trees. I ran outside and made my friend take pictures of me in front of my snow-covered car. While the novelty having to unearth my car every time I wanted to go anywhere wore off quickly- the beauty of snowfall has yet to become old to me. To the dismay of my classmates, I still shriek with excitement everytime I see a snowflake fall outside our classroom windows. Spring is officially three days around the corner now, and I’m probably the only person in Pittsburgh secretly hoping for one more snow.” – Alison Etheridge
