According to weather.com, the forecast for tomorrow includes a high temperature of 62 degrees. Several other weather outlets have been able to confirm this news. As I have learned this information, tears are coming to my eyes. It’s over! The winter is over, the groundhog was wrong. My fellow SU students, we have survived another Syracuse winter.
What did we do to deserve such glorious weather and, more importantly, how can we keep it up?
This news is hard to believe considering that yesterday the high was only 25 degrees, another reason why we have to truly appreciate when a 60-degree day rolls around.
Having a 60 degree day at USC or Florida may not mean much but for the students at Syracuse University a day like this is beyond doubt euphoric. Going outside can be compared to waking up from a long, long, long winter coma and taking one-hundred happy pills.
There is really nothing like it in the world. People are friendlier, dining hall food tastes better and R.A.’s don’t give a damn. The best part is that professors want to be outside just as much as you.
Tomorrow is truly a day to celebrate.
P.S. I hope I don’t jinx the nice weather by writing this article.
P.P.S. The one down part about the nice weather is that walking across the quad you have to be careful not to get hit by any cricket balls.
