I used to love snow when I was younger. It’s bothersome now because it gets so ugly so quickly from the cars and dogs taking huge poops on the sidewalk. Although, I’ve been skiing once and that was a lot of fun. So I guess I like it primarily in the way that I did when younger: for recreation, not for admiring its beauty.

Snow is a way of life for me! We live in “America’s 3rd most snowiest city” where we get over 200″ per year. I had to shovel my car out of the driveway this morning and DH cannot wait to take the snowmobiles out for a spin.

we had tons of snow on black friday here in michigan. that wasn’t our first snowfall though.. that was is around halloween. it’s pretty much all melted now though.
for those bee’s who said they wish that they lived where it snowed regularly… no you don’t! i bet you would feel differently if you lived somewhere where it snowed from october to may and you don’t have to a garage so you have to leave early to scrape off your car and it’s really fun when you have to commute! i mean yeah it’s pretty if you get to sit inside a nice warm house with a cup of hot chocolate.. but i can guarantee snow totally blows when you have to walk to classes in college, plow or shovel your driveway, constantly clean salt off your shoes and car, ect.

We have a little flurries today (nothing sticking) and I’m happy with that b/c I hate snow. I only like seeing it on Christmas morning.

I HATE snow with a passion!!! I am not a fan of anything that can make me lose control of my car. If snow could stay on yards, trees and building tops I would be fine with it, but once it starts sticking to the road I get really anxious.

I woke up this morning to see there was snow and it was bittersweet. I love how pretty it looks and I feel like I get more in a Holiday state of mind when there is, but on the other hand the cold and annoyances that come with it suck. lol

HATE HATE HATE it!! i’m Australian and i live in Toronto. The first couple of years I was excited to see snow but now it’s just a freezing nusiance. I also hate winter, windy cold crap all up in my business. It’s pretty but I miss riding my bike in the sunshine and drinking beers on the patio

I grew up in the Poconos. I have seen enough snow to last me several lifetimes.

Yuck – I was not impressed when I looked out the window this morning. When I was younger, I used to love having snow for Christmas. Now that I’m older, and I’ve had a few Christmases without snow, I can honestly say that it doesn’t make or break the day (although last year’s huge snowfall on Christmas was a huge pain in the butt!). I could quite happily live without snow.

Another Eastern Ontario gal here…
Indeed like happyface: we too woke up to a snowy white yard… and it is relatively cold today at -4 C (25 F)… Brrr… compared to the nice warm long Fall we’ve been having…. gosh it was just 10 C or so a week ago (50 F)
This morning… My yard has about 1 to 2 inches down (less than 5 cm). And it looks pretty… but I will admit that the older I get the less I like it.
Canadians are a pretty active bunch… we LOVE to be outside… and for the most part Winter is no exception… Walking, Skating, Skiing, Snowshoeing etc. Visitors always marvel how we’ll be out no matter the weather… lol, of course the reply is “If we weren’t out in Winter, we’d literally be house-bound for 4 to 5 months of the year”
As I’ve gotten older, and now do fewer Winter Activities, I don’t like the snowy weather as much. Like others have said, snow now for the most part is just a Pain in the Butt… and a lot of work. Shovelling the walk, sweeping the snow off the car, waiting for the car to warm up, etc.
Lol, I much prefer warmer weather now (no wonder Canada has soooo many snowbirds). My ideal when I retire would be to be gone shortly after the first snow flurries (ok maybe I could hold on to Christmas)… BUT for January (the Deep Freeze) – February – March – and April I’d much prefer to be sitting in the sunshine of Florida or the Caribbean.
Even Santa (and he’s a fellow Canadian, BTW)… has the right idea jetting (sledding ?) out of town for warmer climes come Boxing Day (Dec 26th)
