Old man winter has come rolling in with frigid temperatures along with the complaints of the cold from students here at North Lakes Academy. For many of the inexperienced drivers of North Lakes Academy, skeltering along the treacherous, poorly plowed roads of Forest Lake has been hell on Earth. That is if hell froze over, because it has been a cold winter for Minnesotans.
Although some people find it detestable, others find the weather delightful. Student Brandon Rowe (11) favors the snow over summer vacation.
“I am an avid snowmobiler; I don’t mind the weather as long as I can fire up the ol’ snowmobile,” said Brandon Rowe (11). “Without snow, I wouldn’t be where I would be today!”
As students strive to survive the unbearably blistering weather, they brave it as best as they can.
