The 2001/2002 winter had 17 percent fewer skier visits compared to the winter of 2007/2008. This difference in skier visits resulted in $54.3 million in lost revenue. Some might attribute the difference in snowfall from year to year as a natural occurrence because in realistically no two winters will have exactly the same snowfall totals. However, there is evidence that shows there is a trend of shorter winters with lower-snowfall totals. Over the last century, the northeast United States has seen the average annual temperature has increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. For New England specifically, average winter temperatures have increased 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 30 years. This temperature increase has greatly affected snow fall in this region. Snowfall has decreased 10 – 60 inches (depending on the region) and decreased the average snow cover season by more than 15 days over the span of only 30 years.
As I stepped out of the exit door a frigid breeze almost made me an iceberg. I did not feel my hands, legs and it caused pain in my esophagus and ears similar to the pain which I had only experienced when I licked or swallowed ice-candies in India. But this condition was pacified by the “SNOW”. When in India I remember that my family once visited one of the states of India in the Himalayan region to experience snow. During my initial few months over here snow was a pleasure to watch and I didn’t understand the reason for everybody worrying about the snowy days. I felt it needless to worry about so soft, so white, so smooth snow until I had to drive in that not so smooth snow, clean not so soft and white snow and then get exhausted to wait for the so called SPRING.
A normal day can turn into a day filled with icy cold snow and warm hot chocolate just by one call. One call that gives everyone around the school district a sigh of relief that they can curl up back in their comfy beds and sleep for an extra two or more hours. Some may wonder how one call makes everyone’s day so much better: it is because it is a call from the school saying there is no school today due to icy conditions. Upon hearing this one can be sure that their phone will be buzzing with ones friends asking what they are doing today, or maybe one snoozes through all the texts and continues to curl up in one’s warm blankets, with dogs heating ones feet. No matter what one chooses to do there always seems to be a trend as one gets older. This trend is that in the grades kindergarten through fifth grade, children love snow days to stay outside and play; then in grades sixth through ninth, children love snow days to stay inside and watch movies; finally children tenth through twelfth grade, children love snow days to again go outside and play.
Spring break is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year: families go on vacation, students and employees can finally relax after months of hard work, and the horrible cold months are finally turning into beautiful, lively new ones. This is how most people would describe spring break, but for me and my family in April of 2010, this was not the case.
Dave Phillips - He says that we we created like a circle for ourselves during the winter and try to hide from the snow instead of embracing it like most countries and we do that by hiding indoors and hibernating. Hes canadasa weather man and he said that 2009 was Canada's warmest winter and he was surprised by all the canadians that were full of joy because they all did not want a cold snowy winter. There were interviews on people on what they think of this year's winter and they were all happy, most of them were not even wearing winter jacket. Dave Phillips suspecting everyone to be disappointed but
Bright clear white snow on the ground for almost half the year, fireplaces roaring in every home, drinking hot chocolate while reading an interesting book. These were all experiences and sights that had been well accepted and standard where I formerly subsisted. However, the hot summers of Texas differ greatly compared to the frozen state of Minnesota. I learned to dress myself differently depending on which season it is. All of the snow gear we owned has been given away for others to use. I enjoyed snow and the crisp air we received in the North. The environment that we moved to was drastically altered compared to my previous, and it was challenging to
Do you guys like snow well its not very fun in the morning when u have to scrape snow off your windows in the freezing cold .Most winters down here get below freezing and its not fun to go and play outside because youll end
For this assignment I chose to record my technology use the day I left to go back to Boston for thanksgiving break. I have to say it was quite surprising to see how much I use technology to get through my day. The morning I got ready for my flight to Boston I had an alarm set on my phone for 3:30 AM. My friend was supposed to give me a ride to the airport so ended up using my phone to call her five times but no answer. I got scared that I was going to miss my flight so I texted my friend and told her to call her. She still didn't answer.
As a fifth grader living in Houston, it was surely an exciting day. However, I came to expect the same thing to happen every year, or more often at least. Years passed by and no snow has fallen since that day, but why? Even though snow is highly unlikely in Houston, it still made me wonder about the reasons if its unlikeliness.
On January 2010, my family gets off the plane at Logan airport Boston. Walking through the tunnel, I could feel the chilly cold weather, is was the first time ever that I got to experience it. In Anaheim, the weather is usually dry, humid, and hot, sometimes it could hit up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. So experiencing cold, chilly winter in Boston for the very first time is not very good experience for me. As I walk through the airport terminal, and get in my cousin car as he drove our family to our new apartment, I saw something that I never saw before in my life, a small white crystal flake rain down from the sky, it snow! As I think about it in my mind, I’ve never seen this kind of phenomenon In Anaheim as the only thing that we get are hot sunny sky. As my cousin car drive through the Tobin bridged, I saw it drop at a fast pace and in no time, it has begun to pile up like the leaf during autumn. When the car goes through downtown Dover, I was amazed by the architecture of the city, and the drastic differences between Dover and the city that I live in California. The small
Snow and ice created tremendous problems for the most of the country. People are facing a number of problems as crucial winter is on its peak. Many Americans have cancelled their trip and came back home.
In fifth grade I was told I was going to Mexico for spring break, little did I know this vacation would be one of the most life changing experiences I have ever had. I have always been told to do thing for others and to put the less fortunate before myself. I live in a very Catholic household and my family is constantly going to serve at homeless dinners and work at local shelters but I was never truly changed by these experiences until my trip to Mexico. Through this experience I learned that sometimes giving to others benefits me more than I expected.
heard that it was possible for us to get a snow day but before I went to bed I saw it wasn't even snowing so I figured we wouldn't have one. I looked out my window and saw it was super windy and snowing very hard. I got super excited since I couldn't even seen my neighbors house. Usually if we couldn't see that it meant we had a snow day. I pulled the news on my phone to check if we had a snow. First thing I saw was that over a hundred schools had one! Surely we would be one of them. I scrolled down to the bottom since Zeeland is always at the bottom. “What” I yelled inside my head. “How on earth do we not have a snow day” I thought to myself.
