Is it too hot or too cold? Or both?
During the year you’ll hear students complain about the temperature. It can be cold and someone will say, “It’s too cold, I miss summer,” but that same student may also say, “It’s too hot, I miss winter.”
Since Independence is in the Bay Area, we never experience snow or hard rain. If anything, we have great weather all year round, yet we’re still unhappy. Why is that so?
Every year the East Coast gets hit with snow storms and hurricanes, the midwest gets some hurricanes and tornadoes, and the west coast is either on fire or always having an earthquake, but we rarely experience bad weather that other regions do here in the bay.
Junior Josh Pastores said, “The weather is all over the place. I think it was too hot for too long and the fires at the end of Autumn kinda ruined a lot of things for everyone in San Jose.”
Many teachers leave their doors open during the day and some even leave the AC on. So it would seem that quite a few teachers are not as bothered by the weather as the students are.
In the end, ask yourself, are you spoiled? There are cities right now getting snow, while we get rain and sunshine.
