70 thoughts on “Let Me Ask You A Question – 1/5/17

  1. Yes, I live in the armpit of America, aka, Illinois. It does snow here and it is pretty while it falls, it is a mess on the roads, walking anywhere and is a pain to push through when getting groceries. Oh, and the added benefit of getting your shoes or boots all wet along with the bottom of your pants. It needs to evaporate after an hour or before I have to go outside in it!!!

    1. I’m in NC and we only get 1-2 snows per year. Our first is expected this weekend, 4-8 inches, which is a lot for us. Charlotte only has a hand-full of salt trucks.

  2. Yes, I live in Minnesota. According to lots of posts on my Facebook newsfeed, apparently MN was awarded the worst winters in the country the other day by some newspaper.
    Today its a balmy minus 2 degrees outside, but hey at least its sunny out and there is no wind. 😎

      1. I know its crazy when people drive across the lake. I live in the Twin Cities, lots of lakes, Lots of people driving across them. NOT me though. I belong in Tahiti! 🙂

      1. Lol. We get a decent snowfall each year here. I’m pretty happy about that. I guess we just have to wait and see.My area is already in Winter Storm Warning status.

  3. Nope. I live in central Texas. Yes, it has snowed here on occasion and when it does, everything shuts down – schools, businesses, etc. Native Texans usually don’t have a clue as to how to drive with ice or snow on the streets. The rare times it does snow, most of us are in awe of the beauty until it melts a few hours later. 🙂

  4. I feel like it is the only thing I talk about lately…. Yes we get our fair share here in Québec, and wether I like it or not really depends on 2 things: what I have to do the day snow walls, and the kind of snow we are getting 😉

      1. Before January, we can get surprised, and wake up one morning with a white carpet, and the next back to no snow around…

        But usually, at this time of year, we have a good layer that will stay until at least end of March, beginning of April (for Montréal) and it stays a little later if you go North….

  5. Yes, it snows here…even though we are south of the Mason/Dixon line. No, I don’t like it, and, in fact, we are getting our first snow of the season today. No, I see no point in visiting anyplace just for snow. I’d prefer sun, salt, and sand…and it’s not even close.

  6. It does snow here (some is predicted in the next few says), but the amount year on year varies wildly, from a few dustings to a foot or more at a time. I do rather enjoy it as long as I can get in and out my driveway without shoveling the whole thing and it doesn’t turn to ice. There have been a few times I had to have it plowed. Even a Subaru with all wheel drive has its limits.

  7. No, it doesn’t snow where I live.
    Yes, I love snow. I saw it for the first time in Trufalgar Square in London and it is a spectacle that I will never forget.

    How about you?

      1. ohh… Too much of anything doesn’t make people happy.. But going through the storms, one does learn a lot about nature and becomes stronger then those who don’t face such things. Isn’t that so?

  8. I live in Michigan – lots of snow (normally). I love to have snow for Christmas. I love the beauty and when it’s falling there is a beautiful silence. I do not like cold weather, though; so January 1st, I’m ready for Spring.

  9. I live in western North Carolina. We probably will get snow this weekend. But I really miss the snow in Colorado and Montana where I lived for over 30 years. It’s nice powdery snow that’s good to ski on, it’s easy to shovel, and beautiful falling. Not good for making snowmen however, snow angels are made quite well. I’m used to massive amounts of snow, but it’s totally different when it’s wet and heavy. Snow in Seattle is like that as well. Wet and heavy, melts, and then turns to ice. Ice on the roads it’s nobody’s favorite.

  10. It doesn’t snow often here in Texas so when it does we get very excited! Vivi not so much. 😉 That being said, I grew up in New Hampshire and it snows like crazy there. We also lived in Alaska for 14 years…ahhhh yeah…more snow than anyone would know what to do with. I miss it around Christmas, but otherwise I’m ok without it.

  11. I’m in NYC and it will show tonight until tomorrow morning up to 3-6cm. I enjoy snow when it drops like once in a month 😀 I hate it when it snows and then rains so i don’t crave for it😮

  12. 21 years ago, I moved away from snowy upstate New York where we averaged 160 inches of snow per year and we settled in Jacksonville, Florida. In my current job, I travel every week. Right now I’m on a long-term project in Minnesota. This week it was -7 degrees when I took off from Minnesota for home and it was 75 when I landed in Florida, an 82 degree swing. I’m glad I get to come home to Florida every weekend. It makes working in a cold region much more tolerable.

  13. Yes! And I love it (mostly anyway!) I like to ski, sled, tromp through it, make snow angel, snow balls, snow men (haven’t done that in a while!!) I don’t even mind shoveling it! And while I don’t mind driving in it, I dislike brushing it off my car (especially @ 5 in the morning!)

  14. Nope, not anymore. I grew up in a ski resort in Switzerland but now live in Australia. There are ski resorts here too. A lot of people don’t know that. The closest is a 3-4 hour drive away from us. You can see it snow closer though on occasion but the snow wouldn’t last.
