Default Snow in NH

Do you all enjoy the snow/wintery weather living in New Hampshire?
Snow is so beautiful and who wouldn't want a snowy Thanksgiving and Christmas I've never lived in the snow before though only spent a day in the snow with friends to go down inner tubes ect... I know completely different then living in it.

I wonder what the air temp is in all of these outdoor pictures? It seems like a great idea to get out and enjoy winter, esp if the sun is shining, but is it like 5 degrees or something?

If you just go sit down outside in the winter, sure you'll be miserable. If you're active and working hard (i.e. exercise) you'll be fine. In that pic of me on the top (Mt. Lafayette) the temp was in the teens and the winds were 60mph....so you can imagine the wind chill. I only just put a coat and hat on once we stopped moving to take pictures....and that coat is only a light spring/fall shell. I sweat my butt off hiking or skiing even in the winter.

They make great clothing now.....there is no reason to ever be cold.

The snow is terrible, at least for me, if you do not make the best of it. First snowfall of the season is always awesome and it continues to be great until mid to late winter. If you go snowboarding/skiing, up to the mountains, snowmobiling, tubing, and other activities, the snow will be great. If not it depends on the person and if I don't have time/money to do all those things, by mid-winter I want it to end.

I agree with the others. I mostly enjoy the snow and milder winter temps as well. However, the snow does start to get a bit old and stale when you move through March and into April. Then, you have to be very careful when driving on the very muddy and slippery roads. Even a larger AWD vehicle can have problems when you run into deep mud. However, I expect that since I live in a rural area. Those that live in an urban/suburban area will probably not be traveling on that many gravel or dirt roads.
You have to get outdoors in the winter. If you like skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, etc, you will not feel that cold due to physical exertion.

well.... it kinda depends. Depending on how often/much it snows, how much time you have for outdoor activities and whether you care about outdoor activities. It can get old really fast. When it snows every other day or so and you're out there shoveling it forever so you can get your car down the driveway and off to work, and then you come home (and hope you don't have to shovel again - at least until morning?) and you're too tired to go out snowshoeing or skiing.. and with all the cars driving along the road and in the parking lot the beautiful pristine snow turns into lumps of icky grey and black.... yep, it's a thrill.

IF you enjoy outdoor activities (not everyone does), it can at least make your weekends more fun. If you don't, it's just a long season that you get through to better times. Dress for it, expect it, learn to drive in it. It's a part of NH - not everything is glorious, some things just are- but NH is worth it.
