It's about that time of year in Boston when all of the stores on Newbury street are setting out their spring collections, but us shoppers are still piling on layers and layers of sweaters, jackets, and heavy boots trying to stay optimistic that winter will ever come to an end. Late February in New England is a cruel joke. Our professors call it "Spring Semester" but there isn't anything SPRING about it. We are still buried under fresh snow, going out in bone-chilling wind, and huddling together at T stops to stay warm. It's going to get better, but we have to stick it out a little longer first. Before you go out and buy your pastel colored skinny jeans or your "Spring Knit Scarf" (whatever that is), let's reflect on the essentials you may have realized you needed this winter.
