Has anyone here never seen snow? In your entire lifetime. Those that were raised in south Florida? And I know everyone has seen it in pics and on TV, but I mean live in person.

I am bored tonight and it seemed like an interesting question. I can't imagine there are many that haven't...

Dude...

I have recently moved from England to Quebec, Canada.

Snow!? I see nothing but snow! Only 3 days ago my balcony boasted a good 2 metres on snow on its ledge.

Snow sounds cool, but I bloody hate it! Its impossible to walk in!

Snow, yep I have seen it. As a matter of fact if I turn ever so slightly to the right I can see it snowing as I type.

Here is a photo of some of our visitors from a few weeks ago, and yes the other side of the fence is the famous swamp.

I'm probably one of the very few to to able to say this here, but yes, I'VE NEVER SEEN REAL SNOW!!!

KYIPpilot, you nailed it...born and raised in South Florida! I got within about 100 miles of the stuff a few times while in college in Daytona Beach, but that's about it.

Not if you're in your car going down the highway at 100km/h. (not that I've ever hit one, I couldn't live with myself)

Ughh.. seeing how like 90% of all a.nutters live in a place where it snows seasonally, I'd say that's a fairly stupid question. Right now I live in JAX (god, help me!) so I don't see snow where I live. But when I lived in Iowa I saw it 8/12 months of the year. Still.. Almost every break I get I go to HDN to ski. We (my family & I ) have a place in Steamboat, Colorado. I'm actually headed their this Saturday to go skiing for spring break.  Smile This will be my 10th year skiing.  Smile  Smile  Smile

Read what I wrote.... I figured there wouldn't be many, but still an interesting question.

I been in snow five times in my life but I have never actully seen it fall from the ground. Well I might have my first time seeing it but I dont remember seeing the snow fall. I was in BOS two weeks ago and they had atleast 14 inches of snow on the ground but nothing fell. But while I waited in Logan for my AA-A300 to arrive which the flight was two hours late it started to snow a little bit so I did atleast see it.

I've seen the stuff myself, but I know heaps of people who haven't. Don't like the suff though, too cold and annoying.

Cheers,

My college roommate in Austin was from the Valley (south Texas), and he refused to go outside the first time it snowed. He was absolutey terrified.

I have seen snow and even been in a blizzard in the middle of Summer. One July 4 weekend we were in Aspen, Colorado and it was one of the worst snow storms they had ever had. Was fun driving over the pass that night.

Only seen snow once, when I was in Boston in 1991.

In the short time living in Seattle, I've learned to hate snow (except when there's a pair of skis between me and the stuff).

Snow! Ha Ha . . . . there are times I WISH I'd never seen snow . . . like when I'm patrolling the Dalton Highway about mile 380 (20 miles south of the Arctic Ocean) and driving through an area known as Franklin Bluffs - can't see shit, literally can't see the end of the hood on the truck. Happened to me in December - had to roll down the window, put my mask on, drive forward while looking down at the edge of the road . . . hell of an experience. . . yes that means I was traveling north in the southbound lane. No oncoming traffic though. I checked that first- I'm crazy, not stupid!  crazy 

Snow - what's snow!

Only once, in Lake Tahoe three years ago. I went in January for one day and that was it. After that day, not even close.

It was snowing not too long ago here. Thats good, it can snow as much as it wants while I'm here skiing over spring break.

Glad to see that you guys over the hill got snow that year. Believe it or not it happened twice here in Vail. Very strange indeed. Kinda odd to be watching a 4th of July parade in the snow.

My freshman year of college, I remember the first snow that year. We had some students from Hong Kong living in the dorm, and their reaction was hysterical. They didn't know what it was!! When we explained to them what it was, they got so excited! It was HILARIOUS  Smile  Smile
