Boiling Springs, North Carolina has officially been hit with the first snow/sleet of 2016. Friday classes were canceled and the brave ones are sliding to the caf to get some chicken tenders on this infamous “Chicken Tender Saturday.”
Some people say that snow days at Gardner-Webb are the best days, and I would definitely have to agree. This is the most snow/ice I have seen with my Mississippi eyes so it has been super exciting. For other people, this snow is just another day and just another precipitation falling from the sky.
Sharayah Westover. A nursing student from upstate New York. She loves Walk the Moon, baking, and planning events. She is one who is familiar with a little snow on the ground. She said that in New York they never fully close. The most they get is a few hour delay.
One of her favorite memories of the snow was from when she was younger and her family would go to their grandparents house which was about 2 hours north of them. They always received a lot more snow and they had a lot of hills which made it perfect for sledding. Also, they had a pond that would freeze over so she would go with her brothers and cousins to ice skate.
Another memory Sharayah recalled was when she was 4 years old and it snowed at least 4 feet. Sharayah’s dad built an awesome snow fort with shelves in it for her and her brothers to lay on.
Sharayah also shared her scariest moment in the snow. At her grandparents house, they had electric fences for the cows. Once when they were sledding she veered off to the side and went under the fence and cut her forehead open. Luckily the fence was off!
This snow weekend has been a good one. Sharayah says her favorite thing about it was sleeping in and yet again I would have to agree.
