Well out here in Provo we had our first snowfall a few nights ago. It wasn't much, most everything had defrosted after we got home from church. Now the mountains and trees were all pretty with little white frost across them, but aside from the pretty scenery there are some negative effects from winter season. Coming from California (notice I didn't shorten that to 'cali', nor will I ever) our winters consist of throwing on a hoodie and whipping out your cute vans or uggs, because rarely does it get below 60- maybe 57 if you're lucky. But here in P-town things are a tad different.
You may wear a hoodie-under another jacket
You rarely wear vans, you rock the rain boots or other HOTT boots.
You most definitely do not wear uggs when it is icy because you will fall (the only girls I have ever seen fall on campus were wearing uggs)
You wear at least one pair of gloves.
Tights or thermal underwear go under the pants.
The second you step out of the shower you immediately put lotion everywhere because you will regret it an hour later when you are soo itchy from all that dry skin.
You constantly have dry boogies that hurt like a mother (oh wait just me? eh well now you know one of my winter flaws)
Your chances of slipping and eating it on campus in front of hundreds of people drastically increases-however many boys will rush to your side and offer you a hand
Now for some nice things:
Cutesy scarves and hats.
Fuzzy socks, of which I own more than my fair share, and will continue to buy more.
Ski season, I am more enthusiastic about this than I used to be because I haven't gone for like a year and a half, since before I get sicky poo. So I need to get back on the slopes
Just to name a few things
Now that those of you not from Provo get a little taste of what winter is like here I hope you are superbly grateful you can just get away with a hoodie.
