Yeah, it snows here every winter, some years more than others - I think this year's forecast is for a total of ~61" of snow over the winter (but we *probably* won't have that much all at once).

We've had snow on the ground for a week or so now; the total is a bit over 12" I'd guess.

If I didn't have to drive anywhere, I wouldn't mind the snow, but I really REALLY hate driving in it. dead

Sand & gravel help with traction, but salt actually *melts* the snow/ice, which is why it's used so much. (Not saying it's a good thing, just that sand & salt actually function differently.) Here they mostly dump gravel on the roads, which helps with traction but also wears off all the road markings by spring...

No. There's hail from time to time, but no snow. embarrassed

No, and I don't think it will unless something did happen to the Earth. I live in the Carribean so the weather is hot/warm. Sometimes (like once a year) it may hail, but it's rare, small and melts immediately. laugh

I go to Virginia Tech for most of the winter season... it is up in the mountain, and it snows... it snows a lot. Add on top of that, there's a lot of cold winter constantly blowing at your face as you walk to class. Ahhh.... good times.... -_-

Hated it until last year, when where I lived, it snowed from September-June.
Now I actually kind of miss it...

Yes, quite a lot (except for last year when we had the El Niño). And where I live we get nasty Arctic outflows.

I hate snow at its worst.

Can I have another option? "Yes, and I like it" or "Yes, and I don't mind it". Cause "Only occasionally" doesn't really fit. smile We have snow here for about 4 months in a year.

Since I live in Southern Florida, it does not snow. At all. sad

Although my friends, who lived in Florida longer than me, claimed it snowed 15-17 years ago. Because of that I put, "Does around once in the last 100 years count?"

Snow? In sunny (albeit cold right now) Southern California?
Nahh.
Though I wouldn't mind going to Big Bear to play in the snow.
Funfun.

Well... I have never seen snow...

I want to see it, since it looks pretty... But only want to "see"... I hate the cold... I hate the winter!
When I say this I'm not kidding, but when is 20 ºC I get really cold! I thought I was going to die this year during the winter (9 ºC in the morning, 20 ºC in the afternoon) ... I know I'm not normal (friends, family, they all tell me that) xD But that's the way things work for me...

(Tough it does snow in Brazil... but only in the south of the country, and not always)
