Pull up a chair and tell us a bit more about yourself?
I'm just a couple months older than you, and spent my 3rd and 4th years of college at the U of R - you aren't kidding about the snowdrifts! One time I had been in the infirmary for 2 days, and when I came out, I couldn't find my car parked on the street - it was completely covered in snow!
Did you happen to go there as well?
Lived in Rochester long?
I haven't been back since I graduated - I bet it's changed quite a bit?
I moved here in 1988 after stints in NYC, Albany and DC. It has changed quite a bit since then, but the weather is still tough in the winter. Thank God I ski or I'd lose my mind here.
I went to college in Oswego, which is 10 times worse in the winter. Lots of snow, and that wind comes whipping in off the lake for an extra added bonus. BRRRRR.
Even with the weather, this is still a pretty nice place to live. Lots of cultural things, sports events, and, of course, skiing. I've done my part of the rat race in major cities, and I can say I don't really miss it at all.
