    Yayyyyyy! I pity you folks who live in warm weather 365 days per year although we are going diving over Christmas in Mexico but then we'll be back in the cold.

    Yayyyyyy cold and white beautiful snow.

    Yayyyyyy getting on the tractor and pushing snow around in a Carhartt jumpsuit like a kid playing with big Tonka toy.

    Yayyyyyy!

    Who lives in a warm climate but you want to be in Wisconsin for winter??? C'mon. Fess up.

    We usually get our heaviest snowfall in late January/early February. I think an inch or two is due here Saturday.

    I kinda miss snow from my Minnesota childhood, and the dozen years I lived in Canada.
    I’ll never miss having to travel in it.
    Snow’s fun, at first.

    We had two inches on Sunday; we get snow here anytime between Oct-May, but usually it's Nov-March that hits hard. So far it's been super light, but if you factor windchill it's almost 0* outside in downtown SLC right now. WAY cold, with no snow buffer.

    I love visiting the snow, which I can do in an hour's drive & spending time in a family cabin, BUT then coming home to a nice, tropical beach climate works for me :D Also would be torture to do my kind of work in the snow.

    Nice.

    I'm not sure what our big resorts are like, but Snowbird (one of our best, one of THE best) is currently at 30" at the base, which is about 7,600'. Looking like a slow start to the year.

    We haven't had more than flurries so far this year, sounds like we will get an inch or so this weekend. I usually don't mind it, but a couple years ago we had so much snow I had to use the front end loader to pile it up along the driveway. The piles were 6 foot high or so.

    Still, that's nothing compared to what our friends in the U.P. get, quite often they end up tunneling to get out.

    Nope, such a scenario for me would be punishment, not the fulfillment of some childhood wish. I was born in a little town about 35 miles north of here, and I've lived in Corpus Christi for 42 years, all told. I briefly lived in other towns in Texas. The only other places I've lived, also briefly, were islands: San Juan, Puerto Rico and Wewak, Papua New Guinea. I'm absolutely acclimated to warm and humid. I'm 64 years old, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've even seen snow. And about once every decade is enough for me.

    For the past couple of days, we've had temps in the mid 40s, with relative humidity being 97% or outright raining, with 20 mph winds. I'm wearing my Tony Lama boots and Stetson wool felt hat, I'm dressing in layers and wearing gloves and a coat...and still feel perpetually chilled.

    I guess it's what you're accustomed to, isn't it? I would never choose to live north of the Red River. I would never visit Wisconsin or any of the other northern tier of states in winter, but more power to ya, John!

    It's fun for me and the kids. They're great kids. I do wear a helmet when teaching so don't lecture me. ;)
    I drilled a hole through my PSIA name plate and I hang it on my zippers so that I don't have to poke holes in my jackets. I drilled right through it. I'm a shocking rebel. :confused:

    You can dress for the cold and be comfortable. I can't dress for heat. (That's what we tell ourselves).

    That is so beautiful. I've been out west and instructors have noticed my PSIA tag and the first questions are always "where do you teach?" and "what's your vertical drop?"

    When I reply that our drop is 250' the instructors usually think that I'm BS'ing. I explain that I live in farm land and that a 250' drop is very unusual. The next question is "How do you teach on a 250' drop" I reply "We make lots of laps". It cracks me up speaking to someone who grew up in the mountains and I grew up next to corn and soybean fields. It's all very different. The snowy mountains are so beautiful.

    I love snow. And I like that here in Colorado, people are generally excited about snow. It's a big part of the economy and people's recreation.

    I haven't skied in thirty years but that picture makes me want to strap the skis on and go down the hill. It is beautiful.

    Haven’t had nearly the snow in Central MN is recent years. As a kid in the 70’s and 80’s I remember opening the front door and snow was up to the eaves. If it was on a school day-BONUS!

    I love you, brother John, but you can keep the snow.

    It melts off in less than 24 hours here (if we get any at all). And the roads hardly ever freeze. We are comfortable outside for 9 months of the year here.

    Of course, when it does snow, you have to stay off the roads. We aren't equipped with sand or salt. And everyone drives like an idiot. But they'll shut school down for an inch or more, so that helps. It's kinda funny - I remember riding my bike to school in Iowa when I was kicking up snow with the pedals.
