Interestingly enough, there's still no snow in Toronto. I think there was a tiny fleck of it a couple of nights again, but that was it..

Man, I'm so sleepy.. I had to wake up for a legal seminar relatively early this morning and my condo's building fire alarm went off at 2:30AM. I've always considered myself a likely lifelong condo dweller.. but damn, I totally forgot about these nuisances. Penned in with the rest of the herd of cats as it were..

Reply hazy.. cause I have a damn headache!

You're middle-aged? How old you be?

And snow is of course inconveniencing in some ways when you're an adult, and it's no longer the school-canceling miracle that I considered it to be when I was a kid... but honestly, I love snowy landscapes enough that no amount of inconvenience would be enough to stop me from feeling happy whenever I see the world caked in white. I also hope for a few instances of snow every year so that my nephews can play in it... and in a few decades we'll all have self-driving cars and the inconveniences will be gone anyway.

I can understand it being a hassle though if you've gotta walk through the stuff to get to work, and slipping on ice isn't funny anymore. But I'd rather have snow than nothing or the winter season's boring. We haven't gotten that much up here in CT in recent years.
Once you're no longer in school and instead of a day off you get a wonderful drive to work complete with poor visibility, 5-10 mph speeds, the possibility of sliding at turns and stops, and that one idiot in front of you who keeps slamming on his brakes for no reason, you may change your tune.

A little bit of snow here, personally I don't like it all that much. With the exception of maybe beautiful scenery of the sort if it's present but that's it...

Last year was pretty snow-less (dry?) around my area. Though other cities sure got a fair amount of snow.
Actually... now that I think of it there was some snow in the middle of April, and little in early May too...that was strange. >_>

Wow, you must really enjoy those 2 weeks when there is no snow there.

I'll just quote my previous post:

People still seem to consider Buffalo the "snow capital" of the US despite getting very little the past several years and even breaking records for high temperatures and low snowfall last year while the rest of the state got hit hard.
I guess people just like to assume it's constantly snowing here because this city has literally nothing else of note. It has yet to even snow here at all this year beyond a few flakes with no accumulation and has been downright warm up until the last couple days.

I'm actually still a young, vibrant man! I just meant that even when I've grown much older, I'd still order sodas at the bars. My fault for the poor wording. Like you I just like seeing the world go white, and the smell of the air, and the quietness. The calmness I feel. I've even got a bunch of songs (including some Miku ones) that I save for listening on snowy days. It's one of my favorite things to do.

I've driven a few times in the snow, definitely not fun. And you're right about the drivers, half of them don't know how to safely drive in snowy/icy conditions.

Driving in the snow really isn't too bad, as long as you know what you're doing. Now, dealing with everyone else on the road who may not necessarily know what they're doing... is another story

that being said, I personally like snow, only because I'm used to it from being a kid, and winter without snow just feels wrong

Sorry, but every time it snows here they always show us how much worse it is there.

Forecast says it will snow tomorrow... they estimate there'll be 20cm of snow. I wish I could avoid going outside at times like these.
And then after you get used to that, if you go back home to a tropical country, you'll want to turn on the air-con at full power - while having a fan or two at your face.

I heard of a local doctor who does that while my mother had an appointment.
