Temperamental Temperatures By Mason Russell What an odd winter this has been. <strong>The</strong> weather couldn’t have been more random during the month of December. According to federal weather officials, “December’s wild El Nino pushed 2015 in the United States to near-record levels for heat, moisture and downright extreme conditions.” December 2015 was on record for the being the second warmest and even the third wettest in 121 years of record keeping. We’ve even experienced some of that warmth here in Stafford. With Christmas Day meeting a high of 75 degrees, and here we are expecting snow to come. From what it looks like, not until the end of January.

Senior Nolan Roberts says, “He’s bummed out to know he could out into the Christmas weather in his t-shirt and shorts.” He says, “I’m glad it’s finally getting cold again, even though it should’ve been here sooner. Not looking forward to snow as much as most people though, I just want the nice chilly weather.” Other students have also told me they’re wishing for snow to fall or for the cold weather to come back. From what we’ve all been hearing in the news and on the weather channel, the snow is here and coming soon. For the east coast, it seems to just be a waiting game for now. Just a week ago, we had ourselves a short wave of flurries. All we can do now is hope. Staff 23
