Folks in many other parts of the USA and even parts of Canada don't quite understand how the cold and snow blankets us for so many months at a time. They get it cold, for a day or 3, but then it gets to 30 or 40 or 50 again for a day or 3.
We just get cold at Thanksgiving and it stays there, month after month, soaking in. Cold. Nothing melts, nothing greens up.
And that ice belt below us, where storms are always a layer of ice over a d over - that wouldn't be for me at all, 5 below and a clear day beats that 29 degrees and ice storm stuff they deal with.
Now I enjoy it here, not complaining, but just always fun to see the different concepts around the continent.
