Great description, Steve! At 5300' in Arizona, I have also enjoyed the quiet solitude of a snowy evening at the end of a snow shovel (minus the cigar!). I love the hush that descends as the normally busy road in front of our house shuts down under a blanket of snow, and the mountain rising from the canyon behind our property disappears behind a snowy curtain, to reemerge transformed in the morning.

For myself I'm thankful it's an occasional treat, not a lifestyle, and a few hours' drive to the Sonoran Desert for a mid-winter Scamping break!

Thanks for the pictures. Stay warm, all!

I am glad you folks love your cold and snow - please keep it up there!! I am different as I greatly prefer hot weather - not shriveling up under coats, hats, gloves, and shivering. Takes all kinds to make a world. So now (it is 45 degrees here) I am hating this cold and yearning for July or August (98 degrees).

Hi: Melanie B in NC... When I'm out shoveling I think "White sand". Then I'm not shivering!!!

When you want to preserve the quality / appearance of most things , you put them under tefrigeration not in an oven.
Cold doesn't make you shrivel up , heat does.
I was outside this morning shoveling snow ,it was 10 below zero
and I never shivered once.
45 deg in my area means it's springtime and T shirt weather
I am going to go inside and put another log in the woodstove.
My dog gets cold rather easily.

Our lake is starting to ice over so soon we can ice skate and fish.
My grandkids are excited about being able to play on the ice !!

Happy Holidays

They have gotten about a foot more and two feet coming in the next couple of days. They call Michigan the Winter Wonderland. We average 200 inches a year I'm guessing. Lots of 300 inchers too.

We took an experimental motor grader with Vee Plow and Snow Wing to the UP one year to test it in deep snow. I saw the "thermometer" snow gauge up the road north of Hancock, that went up over 200 inches. (16 ft) In February it snowed every night. The parking meters in Houghton are back next to the buildings so they can plow the sidewalks with a grader. The ice/snow sculptures at Michigan Tech were wonderful. And, so were the Cornish Pasties!

We don't get much snow here in the Southwest corner of Washington near the Pacific ocean. We had about an inch the other day but it only lasted a few hours until the rain came. We get lots of rain......at least 80 inches a year. Things are very green......we don't have to shovel rain. Right now...it's about 38 degrees and not raining. The bay and river is very calm. There are 26 elk grazing in the field below.......beautiful.

Trading cold and snow for hot ,humid and miserable was a poor bargain in our estimation especially after having to drive 1800 miles
I just spent 3 hours shoveling snow . The temps are around zero with no wind . I enjoy the tranquility of being outdoors on a snowy evening , enjoying a good cigar , and getting some exercise.
My wife bought me a snowblower for Christmas but I don't know how much I will use it . I get too much enjoyment out of shoveling.
We live in a cold climate and go to the Southwest such as AZ for a few days in the winter sometimes. Around 80 some days or less
but very dry and don't need A/C. No humidity as you are speaking of. Of course it's very hot in the summer.

A bit to the east, still on the west side of the mountains but up against them. we got about a foot of snow. Then sleet and rain and snow so it was a race to move it before it got sloppy and heavy. Today it is frozen hard.

I have been using my imported snow scoop made in Ironwood, MI to do my road with. It works wonderfully.

I'm in Tennessee and yall can HAVE that -14! Sheesh. It's 45 deg right now and perfect. No wrapping up or having to go nekkid. Just a light jacket and get out and ride and enjoy. No shoveling. We'll get an occasional 3-4" of snow (but it shuts the state down nearly!). I dont care for the humidity, but I also dont like the bitter cold. So...dont be looking for me a house past the KY line.

Steve, a good cigar works with a snowblower too. Not so peaceful though.

Fed up with Michigan winters years ago, 1995 to be exact. Now enjoying Arizona for 4 months. I hate to tell you that the Escape is back home and am living in a 35 ft stickie. That's for winter. The Escape is for FUN!
