True, true!

I would love to be 8 years old again and visit you right now! Our big snows were 6-10 inches. One year we had several snows without much melting and it got a little over a foot deep, then we got one with wind that made snow drifts up to my chest. I loved it! Forty plus years later and I want two weeks of great snow followed by 50 weeks of 85-90 degree weather!

Have dealt with snow here in Michigan every winter.
Sucked when I was a kid and it still sucks.
Makes a mess, makes driving a hassle and slower.

I just put a second coat of primer on my Centuri Centurion...
