Indeed, along with Christmas, snow is on my least favourite things list.
It's nice to look at in somebody else's country but I don't want any on me thank you very much!

I agree with you, so in the spirit of sharing misery, I'll send you ours >:)
By the way, it usually sticks around until late March, if not longer >:)>:)

Nah, as frustrated as I get, a blanket of sna actually protects perennial roots from the cold, and a good slow thaw helps irrigate the fields for spring planting.

Unfortunately here we get rapid thaws that add to the flooding problem

Rapid thaws do the same thing here, so every spring the river authorities keep an anxious eye on the thermometer

In the UK they also keep an eye on the savings made by not dredging the rivers. More dividends to the shareholders.
