Some of you may have never experienced snow before, but for those who do, what do you usually do around the winter time? Ski or snowboard or just sled? Sometimes snowball fights are fun as well, but it is harder to mold the snow than it seems.

I usually go snowboarding in the Seirra Nevadas on the California side of the mountain though. >_>; The Nevada side is more difficult. I already know how to ski fairly well, so I'm trying out snowboarding. Zappy is prepared to eat some snow and be covered by it.

When I lived in Japan sometimes there was snow. I wanted to try skii but I lived in city area and its unsafe to even make snow angels.

I sled down the many itsy bitsy hills around my house, and I try to ride my snowboard, but I usually hit a tree! :P I also like to try and build a fort, but it always melts or I don't finish it in time, something like that. I don't like snowballs fights because I get my @$$ whooped by my step-brother.

One thing I always have to do is make a snow-angel, and a snowman.

This winter should be fun because I got a new puppy and he is snow-white. I say it should be fun because it will be hard to find him. All I'll see are his big brown eyes.

I also like to try and ice-skate on my drive-way. We used to have a pond that would ice over, but now it always dries up before winter.

I live in Maine, I can't believe we haven't gotten a single snow-flake yet!

Colorado's lowlands just had their first snow, so I'm happy.

I usually ski, sled, snoball fight, all the usual. There's some open space my friends and I use for massive snowball wars.

I built a snowman last year. It was something I always wanted to do as a child, and now I feel good for doing it. If I'm not busy and conditions are right, I may build another.

I live in the desert,and we never get snow. Not even in the winter. :'( Although it did snow once or twice in the ten years I've lived here,but never for long.

Alaska got a lot of snow, so I'm going to try building a snow-shelter when I think there's enough snow..

Wow. Which country do you come from?

My first sight of real snow was when I was 13 years old. It was exciting, but then I get bored because they take ages to melt.

Well, we rarely get snow in Tennessee, but when we do, I like to think we know how to have fun. The few times I've come in contact with the cold, I've gone sledding and once I went skiing in North Carolina. I wish I could visit Colorado during the winter season. I would love to learn to snowboard.

Eww, snow. >_< Living in New England, I get way too much snow. But anyways, every once in a while I do enjoy going sledding with my cousins. Snowball fights are always fun too. Snow days may be fun during the winter... but when we have to make up a week's worth of school in June it sure sucks. x_x

Winter? It's still late Spring here, and raining heavily too :P. I have never seen snow, in Australia it snows only in the mountains and I have never been. My dad took my brother to the snow when I was overseas in Europe, though.

Er, whacking my brother over the head with one of those pool noodles in the swimming pool; running under the sprinkler for a bit before working out there's a drought and we have to preserve water; hiding inside the classroom at lunch and making fun of Let's Get Retarded (it goes like this: "Let's get ret arded" in a funny voice); wiping sweat off my face; swimming, etc. etc.

It's SUMMER in Australia! Woot go the Aussies!

Snow? *looks and waits for snow but never gets any*. Here in Georgia it just gets cold. And if we do get any snow then it's just enough to make the ground white. Nothing can be done with it, just to be looked at. XD

Eh...Arcy, couldn't you drive about...2 hours to a skit resort? That's what I do... =X The only place around here that has snow is Lake Tahoe which is on the border of California and Nevada. I also think Colorado and the east coast Applachain? Mountains should have snow...

No I don't know of any skit resorts around here. But I can drive 2 hours to NC where they have a white water rafting. But I'm not to sure rafting is all that good cold like this. XD

I like getting really cold by rolling around in tons of clothes, while in the snow, then getting hot chocolate, and hoping I don't have school the following day.

Well, thankfully it almost always snows here atleast once during the winter, so my brother and I have a lot of fun playing out in it! ^_^ We usually have huge snowball fights with our friends and stuff, build snowmen and snow forts, (if there's enough snow) run around just doing crazy stuff, etc. It's so fun--I love it when it snows!

DT! How many times do I have to tell you that snow is evil? Be glad you never get it... you get all the nice warm weather. *is jealous of DT's Texas home* But yeah... snow is bad. It snowed today... and it's only November x_x Let's just say work isn't fun in the cold weather... my hands went numb ;_;

Yea, I think snow would be cool for like, a week, butt hen shoveling and dirty snow and freezing cold stuff would flat out suck, go Texas!

It gets so hot here during the summer, so once cooler weather comes around it's such a relief. But I guess that since DT lives near the ocean, it's cooler there... Here there isn't one nearby, and I'm so jealous. I need to move back to a tropical place. T_T Anyway, if you really do like hot weather then I'd recommend moving here, because we've got plenty of it! *runs off to move back to Hawaii*

Yeah, where you live... When you walk outside around here during the middle of summer then you'd probably have a better chance surviving in a pit of fire. >_> *sweatdrop*

November 8th, 2004, 07:42 PM
But Kay... it gets really hot here too x_x It sucks cuz it's really hot and disgustingly humid in the summer... but in the winter it's freezing cold. Ugh. We have a temperature span of over 100 degrees! It's awful. But I can see why people who have never experienced snow would like to... but since I get so much of it, I hate it.

And I never, ever shovel snow... that's my dad's job. *is lazy* And I try to avoid contact with the snow whenever possible. Although, an occasional snowball fight it always fun! >)

Unfortunately, we don't get any snow here in Miami, but when the temperature gets low enough we take full advantage of the season. It still gets pretty cold, so it's possible you may see many people staring at their breath in wonder and excitement... myself included, hehe. Once the thermometer sinks below the 70 mark, every person in the city automatically bundles up in sweaters, coats, hats, gloves and all sorts of other clothes to embrace the short cold front that has come. It's fun while it lasts, but I'd love it if we got some snow sometime! Christmas feels kind of strange when it's bright enough outside for one to get a tan, hehe.

My family and I do visit my grandfather in Utah every so often though, so we get the chance to goof around hurtling snowballs and builiding snowmen when the time comes!
