Two categories here...

Those who have never seen snow...period. Either in Florida or elsewhere. Probably those who have never left the state in winter.

And those who have never seen snow in their place of residents in Florida. I know most of Florida has seen snow before - even Miami, once in 1977.

I have never seen snow. I've traveled all over-England, Ireland, Scotland, Mexico, etc but always in the summer. I did go up to NY one time in the winter but they didn't have any snow. I'm a native Floridian and have never seen snow. I think I'd like to see it-once.

My roommate in the Army was from Ocala, he had never seen snow until we got some at Fort Campbell. He was 20ish and was like a little kid at Christmas, playing in it!

I can send you some when it snows again lol... We usually have one last bang in March. Last year we received 18 inches of snow. I opened the garage door and looked at my neighbor and said "how the am I going to get out of the @#^&*# garage?! You had to shovel it by layers. But, I did have Jimmy Buffett playing on our sound system and a cold beer chillin' in the snow

I'm one for this category too. I may have been in Miami for that 1977 "snow" but I wasn't even 2 years old. I don't remember it, therefore it does not count.

I've been north of Florida in the colder months. I went to Atlanta for Christmas in 2001. We left to return to FL on New Years Day--they got 5 inches of snow a day or 2 after we left. Then this past Thanksgiving we went to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. My inlaws were driving the Friday before Thanksgiving from Newport News, VA to the OBX in snow. My FIL said it was the first time in the 40 years they'd been going there for Thanksgiving that they've driven in snow to get there. We weren't going to be there until sometime Saturday and by then it was all gone. It was cold for the rest of our trip but no snow. Again

We were supposed to go to northern VA for a wedding over Valentines weekend. Due to financial issues, only my husband could go. It was originally forecasted to snow but ended up not doing so. If it had snowed, I would have been livid.

I just want to see some snow, and so does my daughter. Is that too much to ask?

Naples has a "Snowfest" every year for the kids. They build a mountain of snow (Golden Gate Community Park?) and the kids can play/slide down it.

A few of the kids in class, who are native Floridians, go to this every year. They say they have a lot of fun, but "remember to wear mittens".
