What's your opinion of snow? Do you only miss it in the summer/autumn?

October 11th, 2012, 6:29 PM
I'm at the "hate snow" phase in my life. Basically, when you're a kid, you love snow, especially when it cancels school and allows you to build a snow fort, and when you have kids (which I don't plan on having), you love seeing them play.

Now I just hate ICE in particular and by association the melting snow that causes it to form. Given how brutal our winters can be (we got 100 inches a few years ago, not kidding), I've learned to hate the stuff. Given how my nose gets snuffly as the temperature changes too, I'm thinking of moving somewhere... consistently warmer.

I like snow, but I wish it was fluffier tbh :c

I can stand cold, but I can't stand heat at all, so I like being in a hypothermic wonderland so I don't feel like I'm about to die.

Even though I've only seen it on TV and in games. Damn it. I don't give two ****s about the cold though and like it, to be honest. Wouldn't really care about the inconveniences it causes. And threats.

I like snow, I like da feel of it...Sh*t, I like how it rolls off my hand when I pick it up.

...But...snow rarely falls where I live...I think the last time I saw snowfall was..mmm, maybe two years ago and still it wasn't REALLY thick enough to make a snowman... :(

But...It does get REALLY cold during the winter; yeah, I'm sure it's like that everywhere, but ya know what I meant. :p

As someone who doesn't get the chance to see snow often I take the time to enjoy it whenever I do get the chance to see it. That said I really like snow. It's really pretty to see a blanket of white on the ground when it's untouched by footprints and other such things.

I like snow a lot but its really annoying because where I live temperature goes up to -50°c. Then there's really cold winds too. And on top of that I still have to go to school in that crazy weather. But when it's snowing and the temperature is around -5°c I like it.

I've loved snow my entire life, but we never seem to get it all that often. When we do, though, I love every minute of it, from sitting at the window watching it flutter from the clouds, to just walking around in it. What I don't love is people who don't shovel their sidewalks. I live in a very hilly area (basically a small mountain), so it really bothers me trying to walk around after it melts just enough to make it icy and dangerous.

I now hate this white stuff called snow after it lasted for about 2 months after it stopped snowing here in England.

Snow is awesome if I don't have to go anywhere important. :3

The only time I've seen snow in real life is on a grade 6 camp and at The Royal Melbourne Show. Other than that, I just see it on TV. In Australia it only really snows near the mountainous regions so snow is extremely rare in the more suburban areas. I'd love to have it snow down here, but the closest thing to snow we get are golf sized hail stones. ):

Not to mention the hailstones hurt like hell.

But yeah basically that. Australia has the sun and that's about it, no such thing as snow in the city/suburban areas. :(

My opinion on snow? I live in the tropics, just below the equator, therefore we don't experience snow. But if we did, I'd love snow. It would be, like, soooo cold. And cold is awesome.

October 12th, 2012, 4:26 AM
Snow is the best ahhh, I miss snow! When it snows everyone becomes to happy and cheerful and it feels like Winter and it's just so awesome <3 The only problem is when it snows for a long time since afterwards it becomes all icy and cold and hard to move around anywhere D:

October 12th, 2012, 6:00 AM
I like it, but I get really sick of it by the end of April. I think we average like... 4-5 months of it on the ground? When we have normal winters ofc.


But right now I'm excited for it ;o;

October 12th, 2012, 7:20 AM
I used to really love snow. Now that I have to walk two miles to work, though, I don't like it as much. It tends to get mushy and gross after awhile. :(

It's still really pretty when untouched, and it's usually so quiet and calming when it snows.

October 12th, 2012, 8:55 AM
I quite like snow.. it is just the cold I am not fond of ;_;

October 12th, 2012, 9:20 AM
I live in an area where we never get more than 1 inch of snow per year, so I haven't formed an opinion on snow. I do like it though, and I wish we got real snow :(

Uh-Oh, Ho-Oh!
October 12th, 2012, 10:57 AM
Love it. Haven't had a lot in the past 2 years though :(

October 12th, 2012, 12:37 PM
I used to like it because it was so rare for me to see it in person and it was pretty and all that. Then I lived through like 5 months of ice and snow and that's enough for one lifetime.

October 12th, 2012, 8:31 PM
Love love love snow. Everything except the accidents it causes. :/

I haven't like just played in the snow in forever but I just like the atmosphere it creates.

October 12th, 2012, 11:08 PM
*points to name* totally love it. It's super pretty~! Even in a practical sense, you can sort of wear more clothes and there's plenty of ways to stay warm. If it's blazing hot though... it's kind of a lot harder to cool off too. The winter has a much greater atmosphere in my opinion in general though~

October 13th, 2012, 1:23 AM
I don't mind snow. As a kid/teenager I loved snow there was always the possibility of school being canceled.
Though I don't snow as long as it's not alot of it. if it's over 5 inches there's too much.

We get only about one major snowfall here every year, so it's never something I have to really worry about.

October 13th, 2012, 3:50 PM
When I lived down south, I used to love and miss having snow, since...yeah, good luck getting it in my particular area. Probably saw like one or two small snow flurries total the entire time I lived there. I wanted to see it again so badly.

Though after moving to an area where it tends to snow for most of the winter, I-- well, I can't say I hate it. I still like it somewhat, though I honestly could go without it by now. I just hate the work that comes along with it (scraping off car windows ugggh).

October 13th, 2012, 4:22 PM
Gee,thanks,now I have a highly contagious Christmas song stuck in my head...

Yes,I do love snow.
It's spectacular to see it when undisturbed.

20+ years of brutal northern winters has caused me to develop an extreme dislike of snow. It's why college was like heaven because I would be 900 miles away from home in places where snow rarely fell. And why I dreaded the Christmas holidays because college would close and I'd have to return home to those awful, awful winters...

Hopefully this winter will be the last of the especially nasty northern winters I'll ever have to put up with. Snow, ice, and the cold are three things I'll be glad to leave behind.

I've never been in snow before which really depresses me! I love the cold and I hate the heat so I think snow would be right up my alley!

October 15th, 2012, 5:33 AM
Just like Andy before me, I've never had exposure to snow. :(

Anyways, snow is not really up my alley as I like hot weather better than cold weather.

October 15th, 2012, 5:21 PM
I miss the snow, I like living with snow, where I live in Seattle, we only get more than 1 inch of snow at least 3 straight days in the year. Some months we got more and on some rare years, like January of this year, we even got freezing rain.

Amount of snow in our area depends on the weather conditions. Normal years, about 2 inches in total in winter. The weather phenomenon known as "La Niña", we got much colder and wet weather so we get more than an inch. Sadly this winter, we might get a "El Niño" which brings in much warmer and dry air, we almost never get snow.

Yep, I can't wait for the snow to return again.

October 15th, 2012, 6:27 PM
Towards the beginning snow is really pretty, especially when it's a light snowfall at night. But blizzards annoy me when I have to go through them, and snow in general stops being pretty a few days after it falls since it turns to really gross-looking slush. D:

I don't drive so I love snow. It temporarily spices up my surroundings.

October 15th, 2012, 9:27 PM
I haven't seen or been around snow in seven years (not counting the one time in Flagstaff). I moved to Arizona, so it's a desert 365 days of the year out there. I moved back to Jersey a couple of months ago so I'm excited to see snow again. However, I am NOT looking forward to the cold weather. Nope. Just the snow.

October 16th, 2012, 1:20 PM
I love snow. :) Being in Boston we get quite a bit of it too, so its nice.

October 17th, 2012, 6:55 AM
it doesn't snow at all here, it is not even cold here :) :)
i like snow but i haven't seen snow in years i think i last saw snow n 2008 or something :( :(

I'm kind of ashamed to say that I've never really seen snow firsthand. Living in Florida, that kind of stuff doesn't really happen too often.

I do hope to see it one day though. u_u
