Wording check for question number two, answer 4 - I meant to have the reply "no and that's unusual" but it wasn't a choice, so I opted for "something else (what?)"

It's usually the cold that keeps me away, or really extreme conditions (ie the Ice Storm)

Yes! Even if I have to develop a bad cold quickly.

I live in Finland. I do not recall a single time from all my 26 years of life where a school, public office or place of business closed because of snow or cold. -41C? Yes, we're still going to school. We're used to it and have the equipment and infrastructure to deal with it.

There is technically snow on the ground outside, but there are also significant patches of bare grass, which is highly unusual for the middle of winter. Can't remember it ever looking like this in January -- last year we had a couple of feet.

i live in california, and not in the mountains. there's snow on the ground here maybe once every 30-40 years, basically never. it snows a few thousand feet above in the mountains, but it's usually a dusting.

short answer: no snow!

I live in the SF Bay Area where it doesn't rain, snow, or do anything but be sunny. :((((

Haha, I just automatically answered for my Scandinavian home country and forgot I just moved to southern California. All answers opposite, them.

I live in Utah where our snow season usually lasts from October to May. Today it was 52*F and raining. Normally this time of year our highs are below freezing. And rain? That's basically unheard for January! Our poor ski resorts are really hurting. Down in the valleys we've only gotten a few inches of snow, far below normal. I'm not sad about this winter, I like the mild temps and lack of snow and inversions, except that the one winter storm that actually did hit caused me to be in a car accident and total my car. Not fun!

I only live a 10 minute walk from work, so unfortunately I don't get to claim snow days. However, on a really snowy day, it does take me 45 minutes or so to walk that distance!!

Last 2 years we had a very strong winter with snow fall and a solid snow cover for more than 100 days. This year however it is the usual mild rainy winter . I actually prefer that atm, i don't need strong winter more often than every couple of years.
