140 inches of snow a year
snowblowing 2 feet of snow out of my driveway often several times weekly
waking up to find that the snow plows had deposited 2 feet of ice chunks in the front of my driveway over night, that would take me an hour to snowblow out of there
freezing my a$$ of at night in my house no matter how much I had the heat on
having to take out home equity loans to pay my heating bills
slipping on ice a few times each winter and busting my butt doing it
having to warm up my car for 15 minutes each morning,while breaking ice scrapers galore trying to get a half inch of frozen sleet off my windows
having to risk fender benders for 6 months from people driving badly in the snow
having my clothing stained with ice removing salt from walking in the snow and slush downtown
getting frost bite walking outside in 5 below weather
worrying about my pipes freezing and costing me $3,000 to replace
winterizing my above ground pool for a whopping 2 months of use, if lucky
having to go in my back yard in 0 degree weather and clear ice and debris from the end of my sump pump discharge pipe so my basement didnt flood
freezing my a$$ off and risking sever bodily injury falling off of ladders putting up christmas light each winter
chopping wood in my zero degree garage for the fireplace which never worked right
watching the undercarriage of my car get slowly eaten away by ice melting industrial salt
cleaning away the filthiest looking grime, sand, and old salt off the first 5 feet of my lawn each spring
hardly being able to leave my house for 5 months out of the year
staring out my backyard window at the lovely sight of 4 tons of dog poo, and a bunch of yellow ice and snow, because the dogs couldnt walk more than 10 feet from the house due to 5 foot high backyard snow drifts..
hmmmmmm..i'd think of some more, but I think that you get the idea that I HATE WINTER IN THE NORTHEAST AND DONT MISS A FLIPPING THING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
