You're not exactly in the minority. I enjoyed the snow when I was a child. I love it at Christmas. It adds a special feeling and reminds me of those earlier days when my brothers used to make reindeer prints in the front yard and the neighbour's yard across the street. The smell of fireplaces and a snowpeople in the yard and a sleigh ride can add heaps of joy and wonder. I would prefer snow two weeks before and two weeks following Christmas and then be done with it.

The temperatures here are in degrees Celsius rather than fahrenheit, but consider for a moment that at -40 the temperatures magically register as the same. That's cold. Where I live, -24 to -46 with the windchill is common and we usually experience at least four months of it. If it's going to be that cold, I'd rather have some snow on the ground though.

Last year, we broke several records here. The least snow in December (just about a green Christmas), the mildest temps in January and then the coldest in February and March. The snow remained in some places well into the end of April.

So, to some extent, I've grown tired of it. I know Michigan gets some nasty weather and the chill from the lake is likely similar to our chill here. I hear you, Billy.
