I've lived in warm climates my whole life but have experienced blizzards while traveling parts of the US. Wyoming is a special kind of winter hell.

The only place where I experienced a weak snowfall was Switzerland, and for few minutes. But accumulated snow I saw also in Italy, Austria and Germany.

i've seen fresh new snow in five continents.

NA, I grew up in the midwest and lived 12 years in Canada so the novelty has worn off.

SA, i think i had to walk in snow every time i wen through the Chile-Argentina border.

Europe, a snowy evening in Rodez, France, with 2-3 inches in the morning.

Asia, it snowed a few times when i lived in Jordan, once covering the ground for a half a day

Africa, it was snowing in Maseru, Lesotho, which I think is the only African capital where it ever snows.

I experienced my first one last year in Montreal. I was craving for it and I went to the right place because it didn’t stop snowing for too long lol - loved it but I still prefer Australian summer

I've lived all my life in Southern California, but experienced snowfall in Michigan, Oklahoma (just a little bit there), and on Palomar Mountain in San Diego County.

I've been in accumulated snow lots of times. Most winters you can get to ski-able mountain snow from my house in 1.5 hours.

Let's change the place: I go to Norway to live under the cold and snow and you come to Brazil to get cooked under the sun...! Serioulsy, in February, there is no air conditioning which is powerful enough to mitigate the brazilian heat...

I didn't experience a true snowfall, until I went to college in Seattle, from the Bay Area. However, when growing up in the Berkeley hills, we got a very light snow fall around Christmastime every 5 years. It was magical to us kids. There still is occasional very light snow in the hills, every few years; the last couple of times that happened, Mt. Diablo was covered with snow. It forms a spectacular sight, when that occurs.

A friend of mine who grew up in Palos Verdes, down south toward Santa Barbara, but in the hills, said they got snow every 5 years, too. These snowfalls near the coast didn't stick to the ground, and weren't enough to pile up (except a bit more inland, as on Mt Diablo on the other side of the Berkeley hills), and were just sparse flurries, but still something special to kids in CA.

I remember getting stuck on Mount Laguna after a two foot snowfall
