    I finally got to scrape the 2 inches of compacted snow and ice that has been there for most of the winter off my driveway.

    I share this sentiment. Sans the ice thing, that just melted on it's own. Very Happy

    Lucky.

    Stupid weather in the stupid 70's with the stupid heat and stupid Texas.

    Stupid.
    Does it help that I did said scraping in a tee-shirt?

    Seriously though, come here for a few weeks in December/January, and I gaurentee you will change your tune. Having only just recently obtained my driver's license, let alone a car, I still get to ride the bus. The bus that is often only marginally warmer than outside, and is late on especially cold or snowy days. There can be a wind chill factor of -30, and the school system will still have school. In negative 30, exposed skin will freeze in a matter of minutes. Heck, it can be a -30 windchill, and there can be roads under more than a foot of snow still unplowed because they just get blown back over an hour after they are plowed, and the buses will still be running. Not to mention that this weather is braved in a coat and jeans, because the lockers are so narrow, you can barely fit said coat and a backpack, let alone boots and snowpants.

    At least if there's ever a zombie apocalypse, all I have to do is mind my propane supplies and smash all the zombiecicles in the first winter.

    I suppose there are upsides to it; you yourself have experienced the joys of snow, and skiing (of both downhill and cross country variety) is good exercise.

    watching the pet cat playing with one of his many mousie toys, kicking the crap out of it with the cute little disembowelment move they do, he looks up seem's me watching him and tries to look cool by grooming his hindleg
    got a very "I was not maiming a toy and enjoying it, now FEED ME !" vibe from him.

    what made it even funner was I was enjoying listening to 'Crop Circles in My Marijuana' at the time

    Come here for a few weeks in July and August, and you will change your tune. 115F/46C, making you break out into a sweat nigh instantly. No wind, and there's humidity to make it feel like it's 125-35F/51-54C. If you don't have enough liquid in you, there's a good chance you'll heat stroke no matter what you're wearing. Cars trap the heat and multiply the heat like a greenhouse; I've actually burned my hand on the steering wheel before. Buses were no better, way back when I used to ride them. The air conditioners on yellow buses were almost always broken. Big metal can, baking heat, filled with other sweating high schoolers.

    You find yourself walking into stores you hate just to avoid the heat. Your electricity bill sky-rockets as you desperately attempt to keep you A/C at a reasonable temp.

    Forgive me if I have fallen in love with the cold. What you described sounds like heaven. Where I am now is hell.

    Wow.
    Summer temps up here peak at around 90 F; the warmest weather I've ever been in is 110 F, and that was in South Dakota. The heat was like a hot, stifling blanket.

    Consider my tune changed.
