What do you think about when winter comes to your mind?

For many, it’s cold nights wrapped up in warm blankets. However, this winter has been in sharp contrast to last year’s rainy barrage- sunny days have it almost feeling like spring already.

Brenna Dickson, a junior, said that the dry winter is alright with her.

“The weather affects me when it rains, because I have soccer and it’s super cold, and I don’t like the rain,” said Dickson. “My games or plans always get cancelled…  I’m sad we didn’t get as much rain because I want the agriculture to grow, but I like summer more because you can get a nice tan and be warm all the time.”

Bear River’s Principal Dr. Amy Besler said that she disagreed with Dickson as far as disliking the rain, but she admitted that the winter season has some drawbacks.

“I actually really like all types of weather,” Dr. Besler said. “I grew up in Arizona, where the sun shone almost year-round, so I like the variety of Northern California weather. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons, and I do like rain.  It does make me a bit nervous to drive in bad weather…

I have been driving for 25 plus years and I still get a little nervous!”

While Dr. Besler said that she enjoys the variety of seasons, senior Mary (Alex) Webster said that she has very defined feelings about the cold.

“I hate being cold, the cold sucks,” she said. “I love summer, and I hate winter. My minivan slides around in the rain, and I don’t handle it very well. I’m glad I wasn’t as miserable this year in the cold, and I’m glad my minivan didn’t yeet around the corner.”

Johnny Carillo, a junior, said that he finds the rain calming instead of scary.

“I wish we got more rain this year because it lets me go to sleep, like it makes me more tired,” Carillo said. “I never get scared of driving in bad weather because I like to live on the edge.”

Whether Bruins are afraid of the driving conditions or not, they do say that they understand the benefits of a wet winter.

“While I understand wanting to feel the warm sun on your skin at all times, we really needed the rain this year,” Dr. Besler said.
