    Try it for 4 months straight and let me know how much you like it.
    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    Eh, snow is fun, don't spoil it for the Southerners who are getting a very rare taste of the stuff. When I look back at this long Wisconsin winter I think of:
    • Igloo building with the kids
    • Sledding on huge icy slopes at barely controlled speeds
    • Cross-country skiing
    • Ice fishing with twelve other drunken dads (caught no fish, but we consumed our own body weight in beer)
    • Riding around on a frozen lake on an ATV with my boy lemur
    • Singing in a blizzard at the Christmas parade

    Good stuff. Just because it feels old by late Feb/early March is no reason to get sour on a great season ...

    Eugh, there's been snow since October up here. Go ahead and dance, Hooah. It'll probably melt tommorrow and you'll be left with a sloppy city. Enjoy it.

    I'm a Northerner, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. This'll be the first serious snowfall I will have gotten since I started college, and tomorrow is my tough day course-wise. Plus, I can't wait to experience it with the knowledge that, for the first time in years, I won't have to do any shoveling.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Well put. For us Virginians it just comes often enough to make everything look just 'cool'. I know no one from Massachusetts, Canada or Finland can appreciate this, but there's something just magical about it.

    Then the plows come and spew out the brown sand everywhere and it looks like Mother Nature was food poisoned and took it out on all the curbs, but let us enjoy the first few hours please.

    Snow is nice, depending on where you live. Here in Vancouver, we apparently don't get enough snow to warrant a lot of snowplows, and whoopdedoo we go overbudget trying to control this year.

    Up in Fort Nelson, it simply snows too much to even use a snowplow.

    But I heard from friends that the winter has been quite tough in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

    Got about 5 inches last night, and it's going to stay cold so it should stick around for a couple of days before melting. Blew off work this morning to take the dogs out in it. They are at peace.

    Tough is a state of mind. I went into this winter determined to enjoy myself, and by gum I have!

    Exclamation Re: SNOOOOWWW!!!!!!!!!!

    Heh, unless there is a Scandinavian or a Northern Canadian here, I probably seen the most snow here, being in Russia, or Novgorod to be more precise. It is loads of fun when you are just a kid, but for an adult, it is nothing but an impediment. Pensacola, Florida, with its all-round heat, is much more predictable and pleasing. How is three meters of snow suckaz?!? We built snow-tunnels then, and that had to be the most interesting outdoor activity I have ever tried, along with freshwater fishing.

    Well I guess. I got a mail from a good girlfriend over in Minneapolis that she had a tough time dealing with the winter this year. And I wondered because last year was tough for me and she didn't seem to bother.

    I've been in the Swiss Alps for the past 2 months and snow has been here every day since December. Starts to get boring.

    But if it snows again really well then it's gonna be fun.
    And plus, snowboarding was amazing in the beginning of February.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    I admit I hate snow in the city since I heavily depend on my bike to come around.
    But then again I love snow in the alps. I have only been snowboaring once this year so far.
