I know that feel. I live in Pennsylvania and when I woke up I saw snow outside. I had no idea it was coming and I hate snow! XD haha On the upside, the driving conditions are perfectly safe and I guess it does look kinda pretty. I'm just one of those people who doesn't like the cold at all.
It's freezing where I am. Seriously, the outside thermometer is at -2.2 degrees C and the puddles have frozen in the yard. Luckily, I have £336 of gas credit and have the heating on full blast to compensate for the cold.
I spent my early years in Florida, and I hated winters where it was eighty-five degrees Fahrenheit on Christmas day. That just sucked. When I was a teenager we moved to a colder climate, and I liked having winters with occasional snow. Now I want to move farther north... maybe Michigan or Montana. I love cold climates.
Blizzards seem cozy. Like Thunderstorms. Shoveling may be a pain, which is when I live up north I'll invest in a slow blower. Driving though, it's just something you gotta deal with. Driving is a pain in general though :/ at least in urban areas.
Snow blower can be pain too tought ... its very fun too when the city's truck cleans roads at night and leaves you a mountain in front of your alley ... and there been raining at night FROZEN LOL. xD... And those machines dosent clean roads everywhere ... and not too far from de city ... you should Invest in a huge truck too xD... Oooh winter :3
Here we have a lot of really steep hills, especially in the downtown areas. Driving pretty much does not happen when there is ice out. Plus we don't have very many resources to handle snow, since it doesn't really happen every year (and when it does, it's for like, a week then it's gone)
We're always prepared for snow where I live. Except that they usually clear the main roads before getting to all the residential streets so sometimes it's fun trying to get out of your own driveway. We even have a law that states after the snow plow has gone through the street, you have to clear the little snow bank it creates before (I think) 12 hours have passed. We also have to make sure our driveways aren't icy just in case the mailman slips and falls because every home owner is liable for that.
