Aussie here! It does snow here in the mid/low areas of the country, but never here. That's why we're the sunshine state - if it snowed, I think there'd be mass panic, and lots of traffic incidents, I mean it gets crazy when it rains here!

Ooooh, I love to chare this one so I'll do it again. Boxingday 2009. The county asked parents to keep their kids indoor as there were risk of drowning incidents. It was a lot of fun rundning around in it tho.. And I have to say: public transport still worked and were on time.

Never, because it's cold, and it was one snow day that my gramps died (this was in March) he died cleaning his car.

I hate snow.

We haven't had snow yet in Rhode Island but I can predict our first snowfall will be before winter at this rate.  We were getting 70 and 80 degree days then the next day it would be in the 40's and 50's.  Back and forth one day warm the next day cold.  Today the morning was 30 degrees and I think it's 19 or 20 degrees tomorrow for the morning or Saturday morning, not sure.

By now I'm certain fall is out the window.  I love Fall and Spring but those are two most messed up seasons around here.  We had some severe rain and wind last week and all the leaves that were just starting to turn beautiful fall colors are now on the ground dead in one day.  The wind blew most of them off.  So yeah no pretty foliage around here this year.

For me I feel it's acceptable for snow to appear when Winter is officially here but that never happens.

We have half an inch of snow, and back in March we had a freak storm that dumped nearly two feet of it in two days.

Well oops I thought this was Stormness's post! Sorry SourdoughStomper. I love snow. I've only seen it once when I was in Austria but I miss it.
Its not as hot as Brissy here but in the hills near Hahndorf, the heat wave one day, flooding spring rains the next is extremely off putting. My little toyota hatchback got bogged just by being parked.  :yikes: It also makes Christmas a no-hot-foods kind of celebration. We all bring our most delicious salads and cold foods.

I don't mind it if I don't have to go anywhere. I don't like the ice that comes with it!

I live in SD so that is just part of life were I live! :(

I put never :P   :silly:
 actually I loved snow as a kid, and I still love seeing snow - it's so beautiful!   :lovey:
especially if you're sitting inside by the fire, warm drink, maybe some chocolate, good book... or going out sledging and then coming in to a nice warm house
but....
now it's no fun when you have horses/animals and health issues and you *have * to go out in it no matter what you feel like. Plus only the teensiest bit of snow seems to cause mass chaos here in the UK , especially on the roads, so traffic is awful - and we get nothing like the amount of snow lots of other countries get :facepalm:  :blush:

Considering it only snows once every 3 or 4 years around here, any time at all is acceptable!

Oh, and I should add that "snow" here means anytime actual flakes fall from the sky.  Most of the time it melts shortly after hitting the ground or a matter of hours after.  Getting an inch of snow here that actually stays on the ground past mid morning is enough to cause schools to be canceled and people to call in sick to work  :P

I put never because where I currently live it's never to seldom the area has seen snow. I love it but that comes from largely never having lived with it. So it's a novelity :cold: :what: There's something delightfully cozy about being inside and reading when it snows.

We had snow here in Seattle a few weeks ago- in OCTOBER.  It messed everything up at the airport... they weren't remotely ready
