Snow!

I wasn't especially thrilled to wake up to the first snow of the winter this morning, although it was not really that much. (It's not even technically winter yet!) Yes, they said it would snow somewhat, but they weren't really sure how much it would be, and of course sometimes they are just plain altogether wrong. I just don't think it bodes well for the winter when it starts this early! I miss last winter, when it was warm through December and we only had one snowstorm. Do you like winter and/or snow?

I've never experienced winter so far. I think it would be so much lovely to have winter in my country..

It's nice, until you have to shovel snow, and drive in it, because your boss still expects you to be at work! LOL

@Ayuriny If you live someplace where it regularly snows in the winter, it happens a lot, unless you have a job that allows you to work from home, or a company willing to shut down operations for the day. Since normally (although not at the moment), I work in freight forwarding, and freight is always moving and there are always customers to deal with, I usually had to go in to work, even on days the ports were closed and our customers' offices were mostly closed. Just in case someone called. And it's a job that technically COULD be done from home, but the companies I've worked for do not allow that.

I don't mind winter down here because there aren't really any snow where I am...

Oh nice! I know it's summer there now, but does it get cold in the winter, or stay warm? Or is it just warm enough to keep the snow away? (Hey that would be good enough for me!)

@fluffysue During winter temperature could go down to zero or low minus... but that would be in Celcius, so would be around low 30s Fahrenheit... Snowfalls are usually just in the mountain range in south-eastern Australia during winter season from June thru August...

@sishy7 I could deal with that! Still a bit low for my liking, but sounds like it does not freeze very often, so that is a plus!

No i don't like either. I would be happy if we could skip winter and go straight to Spring.

The answer to your question: No, I DO NOT LIKE winter and snow and cold.

Well, I see where you're from, so I can see why! I should mention that I LOVE Canada, I've been there many times, and I'd think about moving there if it wasn't for the winters. When I was around 12 or so, I went to Montreal and Quebec with the Girl Scouts, and it was so miserably cold...I mean, we went for the winter festival with the ice sculptures, so I should have had some clue, but I was just not ready for that level of cold. I couldn't get over the fact that, while it didn't snow while we were there, there was clearly 2 feet of snow on the ground everywhere that showed no signs of melting! I was impressed, though, even at that age, how well everything was dug out and cleared so you could go about your day without worrying about killing yourself on snow and ice! All of my other trips have been in the summer and were quite nice. :)

I really want to move south...I almost did a few years ago, but I do have my sister and my young nieces here in NJ...friends, too, but really I wanted to make sure I get to see my nieces grow up rather than just see them once a year or so. I lived in FL for a few years, near Miami, and would like to move to central FL some day.
