Our outrage at all this snow may seem odd to our more northern posters. But, we are simply not set up for this kind of cool summers, and cold snowy winters. It will completely change our way of life if it continues. You expect a big change if you move, but not when you haven't moved!
Just for perspective here, I don't own a snow shovel, just a normal one, I don't have a snow blower, skates, nor a snow mobile. Gee our kids don't even own sleds etc. We don't get enough snow normally for these items. And our vehicles do not have block heaters, nor places to plug them in. We are not set up for this. We don't have the road crews to clear our highways!
On another forum, our Canadian friends keep talking about the mildest winter they ever had. Hmm? What is going on here? Is winter weather being rationed and we all have to accept our fair share? What is a mild winter for them, is a nightmare for us! Wonder if they will get their fair share of the heat and humidity that we are geared up for? Then we will say, the coolest summer ever, and they will be the ones going... it is so hot, and we are simply not set up for this heat! ha ha
