For anyone not from the area of upstate New York, you may not know that Rochester weather is known for it’s chilly and snowy winters. In years past our snowfalls have started as early as October, and you will see snow on the ground until about March.
As a member of the ‘I love Rochester Snow’ club, I love seeing those first flakes come down every year. It marks the beginning of winter at RIT, which comes with it’s own festival we call Freezefest, which takes place in the midst of our winter quarter.
If you are coming from a place where maybe you see more green than white, I would seriously consider investing in a pair of ice skates and a sled, cause there’s no fun like snow fun!
