I learned a new word today! Chionophobia. It's a very timely one, at least where I live. Chion is the Greek word for snow. I don't have a phobia of snow at all. But the only thing I really like about it is the way it looks. It's beautiful! I really prefer warmer weather and clear, safe streets and sidewalks. How do you feel about snow? And had you ever heard this word before?

Thanks @Freelanzer. In Canada and the US, I think there are many people who really look forward to the snow in winter. Some get very excited about it! Even though I don't really love it, I try not to be a complainer. I live in Missouri. We expect some snow every year.
I do not have a phobia for snow. I just had enough of it growing up in Minneapolis and hating winters. The only time I thought it was cool here in Jerusalem was when I had my dog and she loved it. I loved watching her. We do not get much of here anyways so so happy.
