Usually I get pretty disappointed. Living in Canada, I have seen my share of snow and I don't really get excited ove rit anymore. I just see it as bringing cold weathers, colds, car accidents and hassle lol.
Wow, that's a bit of moving around. At least you know of two kinds of snow. The ones in germany and the one you mentioned by the mountains. I only know of the one that comes through our city. I'm sure it's all the same.
