Since we’re getting more than a normal amount this year.
+ It seems to me that people who like the snow are more playful and more tolerant of small inconveniences than people who hate it. IOW, people who hate the snow strike me as being a little grouchy. I don’t know if that’s fair, but when somebody says they hate snow, that’s what I assume.
+ I’ve always wanted to get a pair of these L.L. Bean boots for snow, but we get so little of it (generally speaking) that it doesn’t seem worth the money.
+ According to Meditations on the cold (which is only mildly worth your time) …
Lovers of snow and cold are qualitatively different from the lovers of sun and surf; they are different moral beings altogether.
Hmm. I wonder where that puts me, since I love the cold and snow as well as the sun and surf — and the rain and the fog and the drizzle. I simply like weather, and I like being out in it.
+ A snow storm, or a cold winter (or hot summer), has nothing to do with global warming.
