Kevin~
I happen to disagree with everyone here. I think snow is awesome as a kid as well as an adult. I love winter, and I love snow, it's not evil in my opinion. I grew up in NE and also have fond memories of snowmen, sledding, and home-made ice rinks. I also however have fond memories of snow and winter as an adult while being stationed in Alaska. I lived in fairbanks for 3 1/2 years, with temperatures exceeding 50 below zero. We saw white 9 months out of the year there. We had to plug our cars into electrical outlets to keep the engine from freezing. I was also in the army at that time and had the joy of camping out in it. I went skiing, and drank cocoa alot. Saw the aurora borealis (AKA northern lights) wild moose would greet you at the front door before work. It was always white, the air even froze, but I loved it... I would go back now if I could. I love winter! This thread made me a little sad as I live in Hawaii for the moment and no chance of the white stuff here. I know alot of you are thinking "sure I feel bad for that poor lady, she has to live in Hawaii" I get that sarcasm alot. I can't wait to see some snowy pics. HURRY UP!!!!!!!!!! 8O

HERE HERE! More pictures!

I was in Buffalo last year when it snowed 7 feet and made national news. I had a rough time getting to work that day, but we made it. Around 10:30 the boss comes in and says "It's getting pretty rough outside, and it's supposed to get worse. You might want to think about taking off." So I did...it took 2 hours to get home (takes 15 minutes to get to work normally). Then I helped my roommate dig his car out, and we took off, he to Syracuse and I to Rochester. Rochester is 60 miles away and it took me 4 hours. Syracuse is 120 miles, and it took him 8 hours.

I WANT THAT AGAIN! I LOVED it. Not so much the driving, but 7 feet of snow is GREAT to play in! I don't want it to snow if I have to go to work though. I WANNA PLAY!

Our backyard last week. Looks pretty much the same now.



It's also pretty darn cold which is the downside of snow.

Cold?

I will tease most of you who complain about cold! I'm in Minnesota, so the only one I won't call a wimp is Sunsplash! Anyone who's lived in Alaska is a trooper!

Here's the best pic I could do on short notice, it's from Tahoe last year! I can't find the good ones of my back yard!



Hope this works, it's my first time doing a picture on the forum!

Psst... I hear we're getting 6" soon!

Ah, it's going to be great once it starts snowing. Up to the mountains for snowboarding, then.
