In Ohio once Halloween is over winter weather officially starts. We always have our first snow before Thanksgiving. Cincinnati just had its first snow last week. The temperature is dropping and the layer of clothes is rising. I’m gonna show you just a few ways to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
Sweaters and turtle necks are probably the most simple things to wear when it’s cold out. They’re also the most versatile. You can put lays under it, like a flannel under a sweater showing the collar and cuffs. You can also put things over it like a simple jacket. They can go with any pants like leggings and jean. Sweaters can be a comfy outfit or a nice outfit depending on how you style it. However turtle necks always look nicer no matter how you put them.
Cardigans, much like sweaters are a very simple things to wear. You can easy put them over anything such as a tee shirt or a dress shirt. Cardigans can be an extra woolly layer to keep you warm or you can just wear a cute thin one to the looks.
Not so much as an outfit piece, but an accessory, scarves can and a lot to a look. Plaid scarves have become very popular, you can pair them with anything that matches. You can wear them with a plain long sleeve. They can be a nicer look when warm inside, making you look warm and cozy, but dressed up at the same time.
Speaking of plaid, patterned pants have also been a trend, bringing a blast from the past. Plaid or checked leggings and skinny jeans have blown up. You can also find pants with patterns such as stripes and checkered. These are a lot harder to match things to. Getting black and white patterned pants would make it the easiest, being able to go with any plain colored shirt. However colored pants can would with any plain shirt that matches the colors on the pants.

Hurricane Dorian was constantly growing in categories. By the time it hit the Bahamas, it maxed at a category five. It destroyed everything. So many houses were turned to scraps, streets were flooded, and many people were killed. They aren’t sure how many exactly because so many are still unaccounted for. At the moment, it is known that 50 were found dead. However, in the darkness of the destruction, there was a light, a miracle. A dog had survived for weeks in the rubble. He was very malnourished and scared. The poor thing was trapped under a broken air conditioner from a destroyed house in the city of Marsh Harbor. The dog was rushed to their rescue center for life saving treatment.
A rescue team by the name of “Big Dog Ranch Rescue”, a dog rescue based out of Florida came to the dogs need. He was saved in the scraps of what used to be the town of Marsh Harbors. They later named the dog Miracle, because he truly is one. They’re trying to find Miracle’s owner, but, if they can’t, they will find the best possible home for him.
The day before homecoming West Clermont always had a massive pep rally. We have games and competitions between all the grade, and we get very, very competitive.
This year’s games included, tug of war, dance battles, and the main attraction jousting.
Jousting was where the students were put to the test of balance.The school brought in a massive blow up ring with a wobbly lifted center, the players goal was to stay standing on the center as long as possible while they attempt to knock each other up with big blow up sticks.
The winners of the games ended up being the sophomores, winning both the tug of war and dance battle.
