    Here in northern wisconsin we dont have alot of snow I enjoy the snow but hate the sub zero temps!! What you need to do in Arkansas, especially if you have kids, make a snow ball to keep in the freezer for july, and go outside and throw snowballs at each other and have snowman making contests, just have fun with it and know that me up here in way north wisc. is jealous cuz you have more snow way down there!!!!!

    I just look forward to the next season knowing that the snow will melt and beautiful buds will bloom soon. I love the snow, it is clean and crisp, even the dogs love it, so cute to watch them play and stick their noses into snow piles. I am not looking forward to the thaw when all the snow is dirty and the roads and lawns are muddy.

    The key is having the right clothing and equipment. When I first moved up here I was cold. Once I had the proper outdoor clothing for this region, it's never been a problem.

    Nobody likes subzero weather. BUT I LOVE SNOW!!!!
    How can you NOT love snow?

    Maybe because you're not used to it down there, it just causes problems. (Traffic tie ups, people falling, etc.)

    But when it falls it makes everything fresh and new and beautiful. The air is soft and cold and crisp. Gentle flakes drifting down, making the world look clean. The crunch of crisp snow beneath your boots. The lovely feeling of perfect snow for snowman or snowball in your gloved hand......those are just a few of the reasons!

    There are very few sunny days here, Snow, grey....Every once in a while the sun comes out. On those days you see people on the street, they are usually very still, with an arm pointed to the sky. They ask in fear and amazement "What is that great ball of fire in the sky".

    SOUNDS LIKE SEATTLE! The saying is we don't tan, we rust. I can see why.

    We just keep saying, "I can't wait until the summer, I can't wait until the summer, I can't wait until the summer......."
