Smile Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

We had our first snow of the season in Springfield, MA today! :snowflake:

I :heart: winter and :snowflake: !

I like to watch it :snow: , catch it on my tongue :snowfall:, hike in it :snowwalk: , make snow people with it :snowmanglomp: , play with the :doggies: in it, and I even enjoy shoveling it (the first few snow falls anyway) :snofight: .

Snow has an awesome smell to it too. :snowman:

How 'bout you? Do you :heart: snow, hate snow :mutter: , or are you :indifferent: about :snowflake:

:blizzard:

Me? I'm ambivalent.

I love the sound of new fallen snow. When a fresh, untrammelled blanket of snow lies all about, and the sounds are all muffled and quiet.

The problem is, where I live such moments are fleeting at best. If the snowfall is decent, as in significant accumulation (a rarity, hereabouts), what proceeds to transpire thereafter is invariably one of o'erarching hubris and brazen stupidity on the part of my fellow humans. Snow seems to accentuate already extant human stupidity, particularly in urban environments.

I like snow. Even if I have to drive in it. It is still a great change of pace and as long as you use chains when needed and drive slowly, rarely and cautiously it isn't so bad.

When not driving the muffled-clean-bright-freshness of it all is very cool.

Bring on the snow!! I like when there's a fresh undisturbed layer of snow...especially at night, with some moonlight thrown in (after it clears up of course). Unfortunately, we never get that out here because they have the trucks out salting and plowing the shit out of everything. The reality is piles of dirty snow everywhere.

I do like to get out while it's still snowing and drive a bit. Fun times.

Bleh the salt :bleh:

If we have two flakes of snow here they spread a truckload of salt on it.

I love snow :snowflake: , but I hate the salt :sp:

I like it especially when it snows at night, though the last time it did that was at half past 3 some night last year and there were still people building snow persons :snowmanglomp:

It does if you're in SC. Stay the hell off the roads down there if you see snow. They're bad enough in the rain!

I love the snow. It's an ironic symbol of something new and fresh, yet it is death's blanket, a sign that the land sleeps.

It hides the earth, freezes it solid, and the green life is suspended until spring, the bare bones of the trees sticking up, like arthritic knuckles.

It also betrays the hunters and gatherers. No matter what time they go about their survival rituals, the snow tells the tale. You cannot hide where you've been.

Snow is the proof of death, and the proof of life.

I love snow....on the mountains where it belongs. I don;t like it when it falls all over the roads and sidewalks and makes stupid Vancouverites forget how to drive.

Snow (or, more accurately, salt) means I have to switch from my speedy summer bike to my crappy winter bike.

I love snow, when it's on a weekend and we can just cuddle up and watch a movie.

I'm not so in love with snow considering we have a huge half circle driveway and since we're out in the boonies now it will drift like a mother. Which reminds me we need to find some one to plow it. Also not in love with the snow when I have my 1/2 hour commute to work.

We've had snow flurries two or three times already but nothing has stuck. Our winters have been pretty mild over the last decade though, at least in terms of snowfall.

I love the snow. Only then am in my environment. In the last five days of our snowstorm (probably the same storm that's hitting Mass.), I spent as much or more time outdoors as indoors.

It's been in the high teens and low twenties at night for the past week here. But at 10-15% humidity, there's not much chance of the white stuff. 'Course it's sunny and 60-65:degrees: during the day, so if it did fall, it wouldn't stay long.
