Solved! Go to Solution.
That's a wrap for Day 10!
The TL:DR... those who generally get a lot of snow don't want it, and those who don't get it... want it! Hopefully I'll get to experience it someday.
I'll update this comment once the winner is confirmed, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, try your luck with Day 11! (More Alienware goodness)
UPDATE: Congratulations to @ZeusCell for being randomly selected as the winner for Day 10!
I came for the giveaway, I stayed for the puns 😉 @Wally_AMD
Although we have had some crazy snow here in BC over the last 24 hours that has put a HUGE strain on our transportation infrastructure... The holidays would not be the same without it!
Well that's the question for today, hmm...when I was a kid I'd say bring it on, no school today and I never gave it a second thought. As I grew older and wiser, the "Yes" to snow became a "No" to snow; for I had a lifetime full of shoveling and have endured many broken bones (from skiing and many slips), not to mention all the close call bruises. I have recalled many days when I needed to work despite all the kids without a care in the world getting to stay home from school. So, I've come full circle or as Elton John sings to the 'Circle of Life'; from "YES" to a firm "NO!".
If it’s only for one year and wouldn’t negatively impact the economy in a major way (I live in an area that has a decent amount of farms/ranches within a couple hours drive), I would take three feet of snow.
If it was every holiday, then no thank you. I don’t do well in the mornings and don’t do well with cold. If I had to deal with snow in the morning as well, I don’t think I would be able to function.
Also, I think it would be pretty bad for the economy since it would probably kill all of the crops around this area (maybe not, but I honestly don’t know). I wouldn’t want it to be rough on any of the farmers/rancher that rely on that income every year (if there are any anymore, I honestly don’t know… it feels like every farm is owned by someone or a company that it wouldn’t affect too much… plus I assume some sort of crop insurance exists…I don’t know…).
I guess what I am trying to say is I would take the snow if it was only one holiday season and didn’t greatly negatively impact anyone too much.
It does not snow where I live. I would love to have one snow day just to build a snowman and throw snowballs at someone. I am happy that I do not have to deal with the repercussions of snow like freezing temps, icy roads, shoveling driveways, and scary white outs.
Where I live there used to be snow in the winter but since they built a dam it has stopped snowing Snow on the 25th of December was going to be a reminder of childhood times
I love the snow, and I'd be fine with 3 feet. However it would be devastating to the local area. We might see at most a 14-18 inch snowfall once every 30 years or so. Twice that would cause serious problems.
