Science How is snowing like in your places?

Snow? What's that?

Unfortunately, I live in a place where we can hit -6°C and have no snow at all through winter.

However, a couple years ago it snowed!!!... and I missed out because I was at another city studying. :/

Well, people tell me that at -30C I would freeze in 1 second even if I have proper gear on. And, slippery roads is the reason why everyone in that city should get a off road vehicle, like a Land Rover or something.

People live in much colder places than that (IIRC parts of Russia can go to -60C or so), so, with proper clothes you can survive outside. -30C with no wind is not that cold, at least immediately after going outside.

And yea, a 4WD car would be nice when there's snow.

Where I'm from near Denver, Colorado we got over 1 foot of snow about a week ago. Biggest blizzard we've gotten here in a couple of years, which is odd because we usually don't get the really heavy snow until around February. University classes got canceled so I had a longer break than normal for Thanksgiving. :yay:

In the mountains, the snow can get really bad and make the roads impassable. But around Denver the winters seem to have gotten a bit milder over the last few years (with the exception of a couple big storms). Regardless, you need a vehicle with all wheel drive or four wheel drive or you might have some problems getting around when it does snow. That's a big reason why I drive an SUV.

We don’t seem to get much snow here in the Midwest but it gets pretty damn cold some nights. It’s snows a lot though if it does.

Hmm, Grand Cherokee, BMW X8, or Range Rover? All of these cars are actually pretty rare in my country, because there’s no snow here. And when there’s no snow, you don’t really need an off road vehicle for anything. Well, unless you go to the rainforest areas of the country. Another reason is because of this stupid rule that my place’s governers made which requires all cars over 10 years old to be scrapped. That’s also why I don’t usually see cars from the 1970s or 1950s. I think the oldest car I’ve seen here was a 1946 Mercedes-Benz 170.

Hm, France or Switzerland? The mountains there are pretty high. But, I can’t take wood from random places back here, because I’ll get strange looks from people and it’s probably illegal.

Close enough with Switzerland. I'm from Austria. It'd be illegal to just go out and chop wood here as well (unless you own that part of the forest.. Which sadly I don't as our family's forests are like over 2 hours away). But we have a load of meters still stacked in our garage. However it's on the other side of my property lol.

Okay, see garages here are really rare, since my place has only about 720 square kilometers of land to work with. That’s smaller than New York. So to save land my place is full of really really tall buildings and few houses lol. Also, there is not much rainforest in my place, the Europeans chopped them down years ago and what’s left is owned by the current government.

Well I live in the Midwest(Ohio to be exact) and we occasionally get it. Sometimes it’s powder like an inch or so and it doesn’t really stick or stay long. Sometimes it’s a few inches. It’s been a while since we’ve had a few feet of snow. I think we’ve had close to a foot maybe a bit more than that around January this year? I remember when I was much younger we’d get a ton of snow around this time of year.

Hmm, Ohio? I ain’t heard much from that place for years, and the only thing I know about there is from pop culture, which is stereotypical.
