What an odd winter this has been. The 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.

The warm weather in December definitely weirded out

many people last year. 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.
