Not Quite Shorts Weather Across South Dakota



Bookmark and Share

 The first day of winter isn't for another two weeks, but that hasn't stopped Mother Nature.

 

Frigid temperatures have everyone dreading doing anything outside, including walking to class.

 

Wind chills dipped into the -30’s Friday Morning.

 

South Dakota State students scurry to class, trying to avoid the bone chilling temperatures. 

 

“I try to be outside as least as possible,” said sophomore, John Grevengoed.

 

“I'm kind of thick skinned but this is a little bit much for pretty much anybody. It makes me wish I brought my coveralls,” said Alex Kenkel a freshman at SDSU.

 

“It's pretty cold but I live right here. So, I can deal with it,” added Dyllan Knutson, a sophomore at SDSU.

 

“Especially, when the wind picks up through the buildings, it really catches you off guard. It's just cold. You've got to make sure you've got a hat on,” said Abigail Peterson.

 

Most students understand what to wear when the mercury in the thermometer dips below zero.

 

“Put on some warmer clothes and bundle up: hats and gloves,” said Knutson.

 

“Sweatshirt, hat, outer jacket and jeans, listed Kenkel.

 

It's no surprise with the frigid temperature that students are bundling up on their way to class at SDSU but some students are still wearing shorts.

 

“He's crazy. He's got to be,” said Kenkel.

 

“I don't know how you would even do that,” questioned Grevengoed.

 

“They're crazy. They need pants,” said Peterson.

 

Temperatures need to be even lower to cancel classes at SDSU, but some students canceled classes for themselves when they heard the weatherman's forecast.  

 

“I skipped class all day yesterday. It was too cold,” said Peterson.

 

“Not going to lie, yesterday morning, I had that exact thought,” said Kenkel.

 

“It's pretty tempting but it's probably not the best thing to do,” said Grevengoed.

 

“It crossed my mind but I only have two classes today and they're short walks so, I'm going,” said Knutson.

 

As students march on to class, they know, it's only the beginning of these frigid walks. 

 

“We'll tough it out,” said Kenkel.

 

“If they could put a giant heat lamp over Brookings, that would be great,” said Peterson, jokingly.
