Jesus, it was cold.
It felt so sudden to him. Certainly it'd been a little chilly throughout October, but it hadn't been quite this bad. Just the second week of November and he was already experiencing what he considered winter weather, not fall weather. Bundled up in a coat, scarf, and gloves, he made his way through campus, a bit too obviously affected by this weather in comparison to everyone else.
It's worth mentioning that Gabe came from Kentucky. It just wasn't quite this cold there most of the time. Sure, they got snow during the winter sometimes, but for the most part he didn't experience this sort of weather in the middle of November. As such he was chattering, freezing to the bone as he glanced down at an app on his phone. Twenty-six degrees. How was he even supposed to survive? Groaning aloud, he switched to his old hometown to see what weather they were dealing with. Sixty-three degrees. The difference alone had him feeling homesick; it wasn't even hot chocolate weather there, and here it was going to snow over the weekend.
But boy did he love the snow.
Just as he looked up from his phone, however, he nearly bumped into another person. Fortunately he managed to skid to a halt, eyes wide as he braced for an impact that never happened. "Sorry, sorry-- I should watch where I'm going--" Right then, he recognized who he was talking to, and his face lit up in a smile.
"Rose! Hey. Long time no see."
