People in Tx don't know how to drive in snow. We don't get enough practice.

Being originally from Pennsylvania I know what snow can add to your life. After living in Florida for many years I sort of miss snow. However, Having to live and work in it is something I never want to do again. I do enjoy short visits where I can enjoy the cold and the snow as much or as LITTLE as I care to. At my age snow has given me many pleasant memories as well as some not so pleasant. Someone please build a snowman and post a picture for those of us who miss snow.

I think that was an exact representation of my feeling. I want to live in it but not too much. The worst part of it is when there is no sunshine all winter long to go with the snow. Just constant overcast is depressing.

I know snow. My dad and I used to Walk out my second story bedroom window just to start shoveling a hallway to the front door. Then to Australia and then Florida, where the only snow comes in a cone at the 7-11. Now I'm sitting in the garage in Tennessee looking at 3" of fluffy stuff sitting on my baby.

It's like a retro-nightmare...

I'm coming a little late to the party but when I lived in PA. I had a 1966 Buck Wildcat, nice big car. In winter I would leave the house and at the top of the hill behind our house I would pull up turn the wheels into the curb and slide down to the bottom. You had to wait your turn as the traffic at the bottom of the hill was waiting to pull out into the heavy traffic on a major highway. Those were the fun times but it taught you how to drive in winter. Now in southern Texas we only have to deal with the warm sun.
