Blacktop is now white.
People here cannot drive snow.
Time to hide indoors.

I spent my first thirteen years in Montana, which means, I saw all the snow I really need to see, but it is lovely.

There are drawbacks though: it makes an otherwise easily survivable area for people without shelter into a nasty thing, and there are more people-without-homes in the area than usual right now. It makes the roads slippery in ways that rain does not, and people around here (especially the ones from California) tend to drive Poorly in snow, not to mention that the roads are constructed to move rain OFF, but snow doesn't always cooperate.

And people here turn up the heat too high, so when I go out in the snow, if I'm wearing sufficient layers for comfort, I come inside and have to take off altogether too many of those layers to get comfortable again :)

Re: altogether too many of those layers
oh god, i hate that. i had a roommate who referred to the phenomenon as 'carry a dead body around'. that is to say, you bundle up for the cold and then when you get inside some place like a store or whatnot you have to delayer and you got this huge dead weight to slog around with you.

Re: altogether too many of those layers
Engineered fabrics and new construction techniques have made it easier to survive but the resulting clothing tends to cause Clinton and Stacy to spontaneously explode in fashion horror. I.e. the best stuff came out in the 1980s and early 1990s and is rather brightly colored and really unflattering to the Average Body. The more 'street-like' stuff from that era is also feared and hated - ughs are incredibly comfy shoes that don't cause foot damage, unlike high heels and pointed-toed shoes.

Wind makes cold.
Menopause makes heat.
Pegasi are cuddly in Winter.
