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.
Does it help that I did said scraping in a tee-shirt?Lord Grey II wrote:Oh sure, brag about your snow and ice and wonderfully cold weather.
Stupid weather in the stupid 70's with the stupid heat and stupid Texas.
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.
