Hahaha, that's what I thought she meant, and I was like, "What? That's so random."

MY IPOD IS BROKEN FOR THE 94508048503TH TIME. I'M MAD.

Just south of the Vermont border in Mass., next to the CT river ... and it's not even that bad where I'm from I think it's just the stubborn New Englander in me that get's all defensive about Winter... hehe

Okay, I visited during the open house in mid-November 2005 and it was absolutely breathtaking. That's what helped me initially fall in love with the campus. Our tour guide person said we were lucky cuz every time they had one of those open house things it seemed to rain but instead it was just sunny and gorgeous.

Since you mentioned a season, I assumed you were asking about climate.

hahaha that's totally true. i usually like to saunter around campus and do/yell weird things [gotta weed out the non-cool prospectives, you know...drew's a strange place] but 4 out of 5 major open houses were crappy and i didn't care enough to get soaking wet.

the moral of the story: if you saw something strange involving a girl with any shade of blue-purple hair, it was me.

I'm from Rhode Island, and old enough to remember January/February 1978 - a bad ice storm, followed a few weeks later by the blizzard. The best part of the blizzard? They forcast something like 2" of snow, not 3 feet. I have to admit that kind of adjusted my winter weather scale. If things don't shut down for a week, it's not that bad.

I'm a fellow Rhode Islander! And while I'm not old enough to remember the blizzard of '78, I do remember the nor'easter of...'98? Being, like, 10, maybe it seemed a lot more of a big deal than it was...but I can remember struggling through thigh deep snow over to my neighbor's house, and almost being buried under snow falling from their roof. Good times.

Oh, and for the cold factor, one winter a couple of years ago it was like, 15 degrees below zero with the wind chill, and you could get frostbite in 5-10 minutes...also good times.
