Hey there, I’m Winter. Yea, I’m a season. And I’m settling down in Syracuse. I did some soul-searching and realized that I need a place where I can be myself, where I feel at home and where I am appreciated for my gifts for crying out loud! So I looked and looked and I ended up here in Central New York. They have 2 seasons here: Winter (that’s me!) and Not Winter (take that, Spring). So yeah, I’m here and I’m ready to hand out snow days like Oprah hands out cars.
A little about me … I’m not my father, don’t call me Old Man Winter. He did the glaciers, I wasn’t even around yet. I do my own thing – another reason Syracuse is perfect for me – calendars can’t hold me back. The snow is done when I say it is.
I have three other siblings, none of them are nearly as cool as me (get it?) Spring … she’s okay I guess. Too many pastels for my taste – and so flowery. Summer … she thinks she’s so hot! And Autumn … I mean, what a downer. Muted colors, constantly looking over her shoulder to see if I’m there. And then there’s mom - Mother Nature, of course. Dad may be fierce, but Mother is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Anyway, now I’m in Syracuse and I’m loving it. When I first decided to move here I knew there was a lot to do – downtown Syracuse is chock full of great stuff – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg! I am having a blast exploring my new surroundings in CNY. (Yeah, I abbreviate.) BICO. Baby, It’s Cold Outside. LIS. Let It Snow. Ah, never gets old. Oh right, you’re still here … So yeah, I’m getting out and exploring and you can keep up with me here at Visit Syracuse on this blog and in my videos.
