Snow's nice to look at, maybe play in a couple hours on the weekend, other than that, I hate freezing in it, I hate driving in it, I hate walking in it, etc...
It's ridiculous, normally taking 10 minutes to get to work, to take 45 minutes in the snow, not plowed streets, cars sliding dangerously close to your car, the highways being packed with cars not moving on the sides, etc...

Why is everybody from Southern California hating snow so much when they don't have to deal with it?

I personally love snow until about Feburary then I want spring. The most peaceful walks are walks in the snow. There is something beautiful about it.

Why shovel snow during Christmas when you can be out jogging and tanning!

If I had to guess it's because SoCal gets lots of winter weather refugees from states where it snows. There's a large contingent of people who move there expressly for the weather... or lack thereof.

"Everyone" as in me and ONE other poster? Neither of us said we "hate" snow either, we just prefer not live in it. And we have dealt with it enough to know we would not like to live with in for months at a time. Right now if you try to leave Southern CA you will most likely be delayed if you're driving b/c of SNOW that is closing our mountain passes, that is one reason why we would prefer not to live in it, doesn't mean we "hate" it though. I love visiting the snow and seeing it at a distance on our local mountains, just don't want to live in it preferably.

Right on, both of y'all. While many northern towns are finally putting away their snow-plows, we down here in the sweet sunny Southland have been sitting outside on the front porch for months...enjoying those warm Southern Nights and winds thru the live oak trees! (paraphrasing Don Williams and Glen Campbell here...

And you don't think we're tired of people in the north saying how horrible it must be to live in south where it "never?" snows and is always hot????

That little bit of snowfall we got recently in Houston was enough to last me for the next 3-5 years!

Southern winters would be nice, but I don't think I could handle hot humid southern summers. The best place to spend summers would be Canada, where it stays in the low 70s in mid-summer.

I'll keep my 4 seasons here in PA...it just wouldn't feel right walking around in shorts around Christmas.
