I grew up in upstate NY until right beforeIturned 16 and then moved to Florida.Ihad plenty of snow days whenIwasakid, and yes they were great, butIwould rather deal withahurricane any day of the week. Snow is very pretty when you see it for the first time, or when you are visiting in it, but now when you live in it. Everyone gets excited for the first snow fall of the year, yes, but then they get sick of the cold and having to shovel everytime it snows.Imoved to NEPA (North Eastern Pennsylvania) forayear, andIcannot wait to get back to Florida. The weather here sucks, and the economy is even worse. At least whereIwas in Florida there were things to do.
