Situation: Ann and Mary talk while walking to their next class. 

Ann:Oh, it feels so cold this morning. 

Mary:It sure is. Early this morning my car’s windshield was covered with frost. I had to spray it 

with water before I could head to school. 

Ann:Who would have thought it could be this cold in early December, especially in California. 

Mary:I know. The temperature was 35 degrees Fahrenheit when I woke up this morning. I was 

freezing as soon as I got out of bed. The cold weather just hit me by surprise. 

Ann:I cannot remember when it was this cold in early December. 

Mary:Brace yourself for the rain this afternoon. Cold and wet, Yuck! 

Ann:It is going to rain this afternoon? 

Mary:Not only this afternoon, but also the rest of the week. 

Ann:Oh, it is going to be miserable. I have a full class schedule today and tomorrow. To walk 

from class to class, I will have to juggle my books and my umbrella trying not to get wet. 

Mary:You carry too many books. Why don’t you leave some of them in your locker? 

Ann:My locker is a long way from my English classes. This is the reason why I carry all my 

books with me. Is it going to rain hard or just drizzle? 

Mary:The news said that it would start to drizzle around noon, and then it would rain really 

hard by three o’clock. 

Ann:No hope for better weather this week? 

Mary:There is a slim chance of sunshine by Saturday. However, it will be foggy, windy, and 

rainy before the sun comes out this weekend. 

Ann:I am glad that it rains even though I do not like rainy weather. We have a very dry season 

so far this year. 

Mary:Yes, I can hardly remember when it rained last time. Well, as long as there is no thunder 

or lightning, I can bear it. 

Ann:We rarely have thunder or lightning in California. 


Mary:We are very lucky that California has one of the best weather conditions in America. 

When it is hot, it is not humid; when it rains, there is no thunder or lightning, and the cold 

weather during the winter season is quite mild compared to the weather of the other states. 

Ann:Yes, we are lucky. However, sometimes when I look at the Christmas pictures, I just wish 

we had some snow. It looks so pretty when everything is covered by a blanket of pure white 


Mary:Living in southern California all my life, I have never seen snow. I would not mind 

playing in the snow once in a while. 

Ann:Yes, it would be fun to make a snowman or go skiing. 

Mary:We have never seen snow; we have never made a snowman, and we have never gone 

skiing. We better do something about this. 

Ann:May be we should plan a trip to Aspen, Colorado during winter break. I heard that the 

skiing season is fantastic up there. 

Mary:I don’t think we can afford a trip to Aspen. It is very expensive up there. 

Ann:I am just wishing. I know what I will be doing during winter break. I will be working very 

hard to save money for a new car. 

Mary:With the cars that we drive, it is better that we live in a place where there is no snow. 

Ann:You are right, we are better off with no snow. Ok, I have class right now; see you later in 

the library. 

Mary:See you later.
