O_O If to you snow is rare and beautiful, come to my home state. Ohio. Here, snow is a burden. We deal with it for about three to four months each year. And winter is HARSH. In Ohio, some problems are:
-No crops for farmers. Which means no money.
-School cancelations. (They make up for it during our summer break)
-DANGEROUS roads. No joke, you drive, you better have an emergency kit. (Unless the snow-plows came through already)
-Cold... Have you ever looked up how many people die of hypothermia? There is cold, but this is dangerous cold.
I know it's way worse in Canada and other places, but I don't like seeing everyone thinking snow is a true miracle...
