No, no, Erik! Snow is evil ☺

Really doesn’t snow here although I’ve seen light flurries that lasted a minute or two and melted before reaching the ground. One Christmas in the 80’s we had some snow mixed with mostly ice that stuck. Horrible, simply horrible.

However, I haven’t lived here my whole life. I grew up on the coast of Virginia where we had relatively mild winters but did get snow at least a few times each year. Even had a blizzard once.

I also lived in Maine for a few years and saw enough snow to last a lifetime. Hated it.

Also lived in Atlanta, Georgia where ice storms were more common than snow and those were worse than snow.

Snow looks pretty for a few hours. Then it becomes dirty and slushy. In the spring, the melting snow creates a horrible muddy mess. As it melts the dead vegetation underneath stinks. Nasty.

I do not like snow —ever.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
