It was in the 20s with snow showers today and I couldn't be happier. Winter is finally here. Would love some good snowpack though.

Yeah we didn't get nearly enough snow - it didn't even totally cover the grass. Waiting for at least a six-inch storm.

Snow is what makes winter fun. It sucks when there's dry, cold winters with no notable accumulation. Much rather have everything white and fluffy than just brown and dead.

Yup - fun and pretty. I genuinely like snow. I still get a bit excited when there's a storm coming. I don't even mind the cold. It's invigorating and makes you want to get cozy and warm inside on those winter nights with early sunsets - and I don't mind relaxing one bit.

Yes I have. There are plenty of people, including myself, who appreciate the nice subtropical climate of the city, and the rest of the Coastal South, not wasting time being hung up over insignificant factors like insects, and humidity. Frequent summer thunderstorms, lush flora(for shade), and sea breezes all contribute to the decent level of comfort in Houston and the Coastal South, even with the "heat," humidity, and insects.

Anyplace where highs generally stay below freezing throughout the winter months is too cold for me. So, most of Alaska, the upper Midwest, the upper Northeast, and most of Canada. That isn't to say that I'm totally opposed to living in such a place, but a frigid winter would be a red flag for me to seriously research that area to decide if I'm willing to put up with the cold.

Another criterion is "how many nights fall below freezing"? Some places, such as parts of central and eastern Oregon, have sub-freezing nights throughout much of the year, sometimes even in summer, due to the low humidity, so these places might be too cold even if the daytime highs aren't bad.

Indeed even in the SW there is freezing winters, sub-arctic climates, and snow pack.

Anything above the Mason-Dixon line. At least from my pt of view north of it.

There are plenty of days it's colder than many places in Alaska. As one of the first posters pointed out, some in Alaska would not want a Buffalo ( or Rochester or Syracuse or Binghamton NY) winter cause it's actually colder here than there in Alaska.

But I'd love to move down to Maryland or below.
Even if this is an old post.
*Sigh*

Really.

How about 35" in less than 18 hours?

That was our last snow storm here.

Left us in state of emergency, and 3 days housebound, until they cleared the roads. National Guard carried doctors and nurses to work in real military hummers.

This last winter we got 8+ feet of snow. No I'm looking forward to a mild snow winter.

Thank you very much.

It is? In order to snow, it can't be too cold.
