Y'all have sand, dun kid yourself. Phoenix doesn't have the climate to support lushness. I'm talking about places in the Midwest. When we don't have snow in winter its just drabby looking. Looks like much of the south. Brown grass, no leaves, no snow. Still better than the desert, though.

I know the PNW has green grass. I've beem there in winter before. But the thing is, I don't care for green grass either in winter lol. I don't wanna see ANY grass during the winter! But I'm talking about eastern temperate climates, not rainy coastal climates and definitely not desert climates. Places in the east, whether its the Midwest, inland South or Northeast. In the winter, we're gonna have mostly brown grass and the snow covers that up and makes it pretty and allows for winter activities. My point is whats the appeal of 15 degrees with brown grass and no snow, versus the SAME temperature, and snow to cover up the brown grass (and insulate it from the cold, nonethless)

Have you ever actually been here? Most places have grass here, especially in older neighborhoods in the city

I've lived in warm weather places almost all my life with little to no snow (think Southern California, Deep South). So you'd think I'd hate the snow up here in Pittsburgh. But I love it. I want more of it--as long as the infrastructure can handle it (everything's plowed, there's heat in the buildings, salt on the streets, etc.). Honestly, the winters in Pittsburgh are not that much colder than the South, temperature wise. But you get snow in Pittsburgh, rather than rain all day. So the cold is more bearable. It's like, there's a reason why it's so cold outside--there's snow!

Snow reflects the light, so even on gloomy winter days it's brighter outside. There are also so many more ways you can play with snow than you can play with rain (no offense to people who like to jump in puddles).

I enjoy jumping in puddles too, but not as much as walking in deep snow. The only issue with snow is driving in snow and getting stuck. But thats what plows are for. This ain't Dixie, we got the infrastructure for it. We may be taxed to death here but we're grateful when a snowstorm comes and you can still get to work the next day lol. And despite harsh winters, the roads here are better than in some parts down south, like Louisiana. Go figure.



Its like, yea, there's snow. But its mostly laying on the ground after its stopped falling. It can be easily cleared with shovels/snowblowers/plows. It brightens up what is otherwise a season of slumber. Its sooo cozy too. I sleep like a baby when there's a foot of snow outside. It must be a psychological thing, but I have the best sleep when its snowy. Rainy too. Also, I LOVE seeing roofs with snow on them. A lot of snow. Its just such an aesthetic visual. I love snowdrifts, too. Every snowfall changes the scenery in a slightly different way, and the sun and shade can alter it in subtleties.

Winter snow is preferable for me in our rainy coastal AK climate. it really brightens up the dark days and provides opportunities for many outdoor activities. I actually enjoy shoveling it! Snow blowers are for sissies.

Besides, we won't have green grass in winter whether it's raining or not as it goes dormant for the season. Lots of evergreen trees and green moss, but not grass.

Driving is optional, I'm not dependent on it here as pretty much everything is within walking distance. In any case, city streets are well plowed/maintained except when they can't keep on top of it during heavy snow events.
