    I hate any amount of snow. And we get a lot of it. Not normally any more than about 15-18" (some years we do) at once, and that normally only happens like once a season or so, but normally adds up to over 40 inches or so over the course of the winter. And IT. NEVER. GOES. AWAY. That's the worst part. The weather stays low, so it just doesn't melt. And no rainfall will wash it away, since if it's supposed to rain, it snows instead.

    In many areas of the southeastern US, it's the same way. And people with 4-wheel-drive vehicles in those areas think that makes them (the driver) capable in the snow.

    I think people who live where it snows much are much more likely to grow to hate it. I grew up where snow meant playing outside, missing school, and other good things. Snow down this way never has a chance to get dirty - there's not much less pleasant to look at than those big piles of dirty snow you guys have to deal with.

    Had a great time this weekend at the Winter Blackbelt test and seminars

    Two days of testing and seminars with an annual banquet

    One of our really good friends earned his 1st Dan BB this weekend and at the banquet Jacob was voted 17 year or younger Blackbelt of the year.

    As a kid I actually enjoyed it. I think sometime in my teen years when it meant shovelling multiple days a week before school, dealing with the cold and not being able to play football for the entire winter months at the park ruined it for me.

    Depending on where you are 3 inches can be just business as usual. I lived in Rochester, NY for five years, where 3 inches of snow are considered a "dusting". 12 inches might cause concern. Things might start closing if you have a snowfall of 2" per hour for 24 hours. Might.

    Yeah, but we don't even have snow plows.
    Not a one....
    And the guys driving the sand trucks turn them on their sides.

    That's what I mean. For me, it never got that bothersome. I have to shovel once a year. It's part of my winter exercise regimen. Consistency is key - I never skip that exercise...unless we don't get enough snow.

    When I was 18, we had a big snow in South Carolina - 18" in 24 hours. After the first foot fell, they sent out the sand trucks. Then the other 6" piled on. The only plows they had were on the sand trucks, and were useless with that amount of snow.
