The clocks have been turned back, which means Winter is approaching our little town of Easthampton. Williston students from all around the world have varied opinions on the chilly air that is now upon us.

The Willistonian asks students from Canada to Florida how they cope when the temperatures begin to dip.

Shana Hecht ’18 is from Delray Beach, Florida. She says she prefers the cold weather, while Louisa Weed ’20, from Jupiter, Florida claimes to prefer the warmer weather. Shana states that she “cannot wear flip flops in the winter like I used to in Florida.” Louisa added, “I am able to be outside (in Florida) almost every day in the heat unlike up here.”

On the opposite side of the situation, Thomas Thibault ’19 from Quebec City, Canada is more than excited for the oncoming winter weather.

“I love the cold!” Thomas exclaimed ecstatically.

Thomas went on to speak about the weather differences from Canada to Easthampton. “There is a lot less snow so far, the streets aren’t often swept of snow back home, which creates a very Christmas wonderland feeling, we experience a true white winter which is pretty awesome.”

Thomas adds that his favorite part about the winter weather is when it snows.

In between Florida and Canada, in our town of Easthampton, day student Cam Ziomek ’18 is also excited about the winter weather, similar to Thomas.

Cam claims he cannot wait for it to snow, as it will give him a chance to “shred the gnar on the mountains,” or in other words, ski.

However, like most students, there are parts of winter Cam does not enjoy. He states, “during snow storms, I have to go out and shovel my house and other houses on my street.”

Luckily for Cam and other students who dread certain parts of the winter, it will only be a few months and then the clocks will be turned forward as we head into spring at Williston.
