Help me make friends & survive the snow in Rochester

Posted by Lauren @lnbowen, Sep 21 3:28pm

Hi!!

My name is Lauren and I just moved to Rochester from southern California. Just graduated with my BSN this summer and landed in CV PCU as an RN :-). Im looking for tips on how to survive the snow as I've literally never lived in anything colder than 50 and rain a few times a year hahaha. I saw that the avg high in January is 22?? How do yall do anything

Also would love to make some new friends since I'm here a few weeks before I start my job :-). A little about me: I'm in my early 20s and hobbies include: baking, cooking, thrifting, walks, lifting weights, eating healthy, making ice cream, plants, wearing cute outfits, eating out at good restaurants, making yummy coffee at home, traveling (went to Greece and Mexico this summer, next up is Europe in Jan!), & gardening. If you have any of these interests please lmk!!! Or if you have any tips on how to make friends please tell me. When I've gone out, I've BARELY seen ppl my age but maybe yall are just hidden. Also, I just moved in a new place with my bf and would love opinions on decorating and going thrifting to find cool pieces cuz my bf has no opinion on house stuff hahaha.

Thanks <3

P.S. I attached some of my baking and ice cream making 🙂

This looks lovely! Would love to bake with you one day 🙂

Invest in a good winter coat and boots… snow pants if you plan on doing the park and ride 🤣.

There is a Rochester Social Club on meet up.

22 degrees is not bad. 20 below zero wind chills will get your attention.

I also love baking! I just graduated in the summer with my BSN as well. I will be moving the first week of October from Texas.

Hey! I am also a new grad moving from Texas so the cold weather is going to be a culture shock for me too! I am starting in February in the medical ICU. Feel free to reach out! My instagram is @sara.king._

Just hope the January average is 22!! That's a relatively warm day around here that time of year. Welcome to Rochester!

I'm moving up there in January for a Feb start day– I'll be in the CV PCU too! Can't say I'm looking forward to the snow :') This native Texan can count the number of times I've seen snow on one hand

Hey! I'm moving to Rochester in January for a Feb. start day as well on Transplant ICU! I'm from Nashville, TN so I get where you're coming from with the snow. We get a little here, but nothing even in comparison to Rochester. I'm nervous about the winters! I also love to travel! I've been to over 20 different countries for past study abroad trips! I was in Rochester this summer for their summer nurse internship and met a ton of people in the program that will be coming back to work! Feel free to DM me if you would like my socials, I'm looking for more friends up there too!! You're ice cream and baking looks AMAZING!!
