QOTD 21/01 - Snow

Postby Funky Fairy » Jan 21st, '13, 4:02 am

Do you like snow?

If I don't have to go out in it I don't mind. To me it's a hassle.
School runs are a pain, I don't want to drive in it, it's wet and cold. :(

I both love and hate snow. :D I am so ready for spring, but since I know we'll never have spring in January, I totally prefer snow from what we'd have otherwise. It's so beautiful and it lights up the world so much. The kids love it too, and it's so much better when they are playing in the snow, than when they are playing in the mud! :)

But my feelings for the snow are pretty dependent on the temperature. The ideal temp is just a little below freezing. It's not fun when it's melting-freezing-melting-freezing, making everything totally wet or very icy, or when it's way too cold...

Love hate here too. I like to be home and watch it but absolutely hate it for commuting. It's usually not an easy snow to get through.

I'm with Anna, if it's going to be cold and rainy, I'd rather have snow. I do love the beauty of a new-fallen snow! ♥ We don't get snow often where we live, so it's a big deal when it happens. I prefer not to have any past February.

I LOVE snow, from inside the house! Love the way it looks, love the way it makes everything seem to glow at night, and love how quiet it is.

I would live somewhere warm if I had to leave the house more often than I do. :D

Me too, I love/hate it.
Living in Norway, I have no choice, we usually have snow for 4-5 months in winter. We kind of get used to it, but then of course we get tired of it too.
But it's true, it really lighten's up when it's so dark in wintertime and that is a very good thing because it is really dark...
However, I like it when it's there as in a limited amount, I hate it when it's snowing.
Also, like Anna, I think it's better when it is a bit below zero and the snow is not too wet, that's when all the trouble start.
Right now, we have a bit snow, not too much, but enough for it to be lighter and nicer :)

I love snow at Christmas, but could do without it the rest of the year. :)

Another love/hate girl here! :) I love to see it, and my kids get SO excited as it a pretty rare thing around here! However, I live on a mountain, so I always get concerned about the roads and safety. So, my ideal snow day is just a little, enough to have the kids home from school and plenty of hot chocolate (and photos of course!) but then I like it to melt by the afternoon and the roads are snow-free! (I don't ask for much, do I?) :)

I love it when I get snowed in and have to work from home. Great on lazy weekend!
I hate it when it isn't enough snow to keep me house bound or I have to go out in it for something important.

Winter and cold bother me more than snow does. It's a high in teens today — my toes have been cold all day!

No. Feel free to ask me next January, once we're in South Africa, if I like snow. Right now, with the temperature hovering around -30 and me and DH having spent 15 minutes of attempting to push our van out of the snowbank that is the side of our driveway -- no, I do not like snow.

Just like most of you I love/hate it! It makes for the best days to scrap but worst days to drive!

We got about 2 inches of new snow today. Its pretty but my favorite time of the year is fall.

Where I live we hardly ever get snow, maybe once a year. So I LOVE the snow, it's such a treat!

I LOVE snow by itself especially on the ski hill. It's SO much better than the barely-above-freezing rain that I grew up with in Vancouver. But the ice and grit we have right now I could live without. And it seems we should have cleaned our gutters last fall, 'cause our house has killer icicles at the moment. :-\ :-[

I liked it much more when I was a kid!
As a mom and person who is always cold, it is way too much hassle for me. All the extra clothes- the mitts, hats, scarves, boots, slop and wet that piles at my front door takes any fun out of it for me. But up until yesterday we hadn't had any all winter. Suddenly we got 8 inches!

So I guess it is here to stay for awhile now. But I am going to be thrilled as it melts for good. Bring on summer, sunshine, green grass and bike riding. I love all those things much more than snow!

If it would snow between the hours of midnight and 4 am, so I could always be able to drive where I want, then i would not mind it. I hate having to drive in it.
