then you don't enjoy snow.

Snow is more about the mess it creates for pedestrians and drivers, and the huge cost to remove than about the pretty scenery that everything is covered in white or the possibility to snow.

Every December, I am sick of people wanting a f**king "white Christmas". Yeah, move to Syracuse where it is guaranteed.

No, I'm pretty sure I enjoy snow but don't enjoy the flooding of water afterwards when it melts. Let me check again. ::thinks:: Yep, still enjoy snow but not the flooding. I also enjoy thunderstorms but not tornadoes. Oh, and I also like babies despite the mess they create, too.

Any of the sports I mentioned can take place in cities with enough snow. The one exception might be snowmobiling. Not sure po-po would be cool with that.

A winter of 25 inches is nothing for us. I don't think we've had a winter with that little snow in 20 years as well.

25 or more. I like the occasional 20 inch snow storm. I don't have to drive in the mess since I live in the city so I would assume I would say 5-10 inches if I lived in the city. However, any threat of a snow storm is an automatic shutdown for DC areas and points South.

From my own observations, snow seems to be an effective d_____bag repellent. The more there is of one, the less there is of the other, with very few exceptions. (Boston and Denver have an abundance of both, and Houston and New Orleans have a deficit of both.)

I would say that a little snow is just perfect. Not too much but it's nice to get some. Getting no snow is boring and getting too much snow sucks. So I will gladly take a little.

Hundreds of inches. 25 inches is nothing.

I also enjoy 'vodka cold', such as when the temperature plunges below -20. West Yellowstone, MT is my favorite climate in the US.
