Snow is a pain in the butt, but really the worst time of the year is when it is switching from hot to cold, or cold to hot. Sometimes the temp will swing from around 30F (0C) to 90F+ (32C+) and back down again to 30F, that's rough as hell on the joints.

When I lived in the north, I hated snow and the cold. Now that I live in the south, I miss snow and the cold. It's too hot down here, even in freaking winter.

My thoughts on snow...

I don't like it. It's a pain in the ass. I used to drive for a living.

But even if I hadn't, I still wouldn't like it. It's cold, and when it drifts several feet high and you still have to go to work, it's about the worst thing I can imagine.

It looks pretty, from behind a pane of glass, in an insulated home, but when it's standing between you and everything else there isn't a thing good about the stuff.

Yeah, I do live in a place where snow is pretty common for half the year. (North Dakota)

Here's a couple pictures I took from a couple years ago.

sure thing, but yeah didn't seem that bad but for cars maybe more (since you wasn't blocked (or in that way/heavy)

where I come from it can be 1-2 meters and some cabins could be destroyed/collapsed by the heavy weight (so get your hands out there and take that snow off the roof.

Actually, homes here are built to withstand heavy snowfalls, though where I live we don't specifically get a lot of precipitation compared to the eastern half of the state - but it's more or less common to have a good meter of snow at least once per winter.

Interestingly enough, since the big oil boom here, we have not had one single snowstorm like in the pictures. I don't know how many of you are into conspiracy theories about weather manipulation, but... it has been very oddly nice for the oil guys. I have lived here my whole life, pretty much... don't get me started!

It's been MANY years since we've actually had to remove snow from the roof, though, haha... I'm glad we don't get THAT much very often...

no and yes.
they are build for snow, but no little cabin can take that much (so difference in how they are made if you lived in one of those on the picture, don't know the name of that but atleast they got a stronger build for the most part from the roof) but we have much more snow even if its a 1-2 meters since the rain falls ontop of the snow making it heavy (really heavy and ice that makes it nearly impossible to remove) plus while thats gone smaller agian and 2-3x as heavy there will fall more snow on top of that making the size it was before (so alot of wight)

You're right about that, there's only a point to where they can actually temper a building to withstand the weight of snow. When we get really heavy wet snow, and a lot of it, it usually destroys trees, snaps powerlines, things like that. Mother nature is rough, eh.

From the sound of things, you get a LOT more moisture than we do here. When it snows here, it likely won't be raining for many months, and that also means the snow weighs less due to the low temperature.

It's also very windy in North Dakota, and that prevents snow buildup on the top of buildings. Instead, it builds up on their side, heh.
