Now that the effects of global warming aren’t extending all the way to December, we got a fresh carpet of whiteness on the ground this morning! This coming from the northernmost capital, what’s your situation? Snow much, if ever?
Doesn’t snow much down South. Maybe 1-3 times a year, depending on conditions. But it when it does snow/freeze, I tend to make a big deal of it.
Last February (or March), it snowed while I was at school, and since I had class, didn’t leave until there was lots of snow and the damn roads froze. Bad move there. Took me an hour and a half to get home. Damn roads were packed with cars. But, I ended up making a cool snow fortress, so I can’t complain. And classes were canceled.
Got about half a foot outside my window right now. On the one hand, I’m so happy, ya know? On the other, it makes biking to school a bitch. Not because the weather’s uncomfortable or the road’s slippery… but because it makes everyone who drives suddenly act like a total moron who goes “HOLY SHIT, WHITE STUFF IS FALLING FROM THE SKY! how do i drive in this?!”
Is it really that hard to lower your regular driving speed by about -5 to -10mph to compensate the difference bad weather brings? Regular heavy rain does that for me, can’t see shit and hydroplaning in big puddles makes steering hell
I think I may have seen some flakes back about a week ago or something (though it could have been rain it was too insignificant to tell). Otherwise we’ve still got green grass, blue skies, and temperatures in the forties (not including the wind chill which would drop the temp to about ten degrees).
