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
snow.
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: Maybe we should plan a trip to Aspen, Colorado during winter break. I heard that the
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.
