LOL I think my love for the snow ended when my brother went away for college and it became my "job" to scrape the ice off the windshield and start the car for my mom. It's funny but when he was there I was jealous cause I didn't get to do it

Listen to your Mom......... You need some sort of boots if you are the shoveler of the snow. I just use low ones, with nice warm insides.........
I did a ton of shoveling in NJ and PA........last year here in PA it was ICE we had to deal with........I'd rather have snow.
Yep, I live in Florida and I think I'm 100% warm blooded. I get cold if a cloud covers the sun.

WRT the "average" snowfall in NJ, it varies greatly. I remember years when we had what seemed like one storm after another, some of which dumped 18"+ of snow, and other years when there was barely a flurry all winter.
Who said the winters are cold in the whole country of Sweden?
During the winter; upp in North, itīs cold with temperatures into the teens. In Central Sweden, the temperatures is 20s, in southern area, temperatures are around 28 - 34 F, so itīs not that cold.
To compare, Southern Sweden has same temperatures in the winter as Central and Southern NJ

No, it's not "that cold" but it's cold enough that the snow hangs around a little longer than in central NJ, where it can get up into the high 30's/low 40's, causing the snow to melt faster. Or, even better yet, it'll warm up enough that it'll rain, and then the snow will melt fast enough to cause basements to flood, sewers to back up, etc., or it'll rain and then freeze overnight, turning everything into an ice rink. Fun stuff

Just a matter of getting the right boots/shoes.

I bought comfort mocs (with fleece inside ) off LL Bean, for when I was up there in Feb.

They are really comfy, warm, and I stayed outside much longer, because my feet were warm. (now I wish I could wear them down here, without over heating or being told I'm a nut [which everyone knows already, anyway...])
