Most years in Rexburg, winter feels longer than all the other seasons combined. This is due to the intense cold and never-ending snow. Snow on the treetops can look very pretty, but being outside in the elements can be harsh.

“I don’t hate snow that bad because it’s so pretty, but it makes me become a hermit,” MHS librarian Jeanette Barrick said.

Being out in the snow can be miserable, especially early in the morning. Overnight and into the early morning, temperatures continue to get colder and colder. If there’s a breeze, the degrees will drop even lower.      

“Dress warm… you have to be prepared,” Barrick said.

Slick roads and college students with no snow driving experience can make driving in the winter very dangerous. In a rear wheel drive vehicle, the chances of getting in an accident can increase.  

“I hate it, it’s quite scary because I’ve slid quite a few times,” Barrick said.
