Winter is just around the corner! Many of our students have never experienced a winter like Boston’s and it sure is beautiful. With the lack of winter experience comes a lack of winter vocabulary… but don’t worry! We will share all of the most important winter vocabulary with you.
Slush: wet, melted snow
Sleet: frozen rain
Black Ice: sheets of clear ice that blend with the pavement, making it almost invisible
Blizzard: a prolonged snowstorm with high winds
Flurries: a light snowfall
Whiteout: when visibility becomes slim to none because of heavy snowfall
Wind-chill: what the temperature actually feels like considering the strength of the wind and temperature
Bundle up: a phrase used to describe someone dressing warmly before heading outside into cold weather
Snow boots: large insulated shoes for the feet and part of the legs to wear during winter

Gloves: to wear on hands enclosing each finger and thumb separately to keep warm
Wool socks: stockings made out of hair from a sheep turned into fleece
Salt: a mineral that is put on sidewalks and roads to melt the ice and prevent people from slipping
Snow blower: a machine pushed and operated by a person to remove snow
Snowplow / Sander: a truck which removes snow and releases salt to make the streets safe for driving
