Every time I get excited about possibly attending Columbia I get this exact thought of "oh crap, the weather adjustment is going to be brutal." I've lived in two climates in my life: the Bay Area growing up, and San Diego the last few years. To say I have never experienced a "real" winter is an understatement.
It was 70 degrees here today and it felt sort of hot walking around in shorts and a t-shirt. I've been to the beach just about every weekend for the last month. I have one "heavy" jacket that is probably good for 30 degree weather. The thought of that kind of cold and dealing with snow just honestly seems unreal to me.
