It is crazy to think how just this weekend, during Homecoming, fans came to the football game in tank tops, muscle shirts, crop tops and shorts. We have had unusually fantastic weather for Erie going into October.
While students were outside enjoying the sun, everyone was praying that the weather would last just a little bit longer.
Unfortunately, come Monday, everyone’s hopes were doused with a cold dose of Erie rain. They do not call it “Dreary Erie” for no reason.
The most optimistic, naïve, newbies may look forward to the sun coming back just as quick as it left, but they will be sorely disappointed.
Everyone who is familiar with Erie knows it’s time to break out the fuzzy socks and blankets. My good friend Ladorise, who is sporting the sleeveless shirt and wearing a big smile, will be very hard to find once the cold begins to set in.
Instead of braving the elements, she prefers to stay inside, in her bed snuggled up reading a book, watching a movie or moseying around on Tumblr.
This is the ideal way to spend most days especially when the snow sets in. Already, the Uggs and sweatshirts are coming out; scarves are popping up sporadically.
It’s coming, Erie, and there is no way to stop it. Time to start buckling down for the long winter.
