I think pictures of snow in the wilderness are pretty. I don't like either cold or snow in real life, though.

i think it is very pretty to LOOK at. i can't stand having to walk and drive through it though.

Love it, as long as I don't have to drive in it. Most of the students act like they've never seen it before and don't have a clue how to manuever around in it.

After Eminem and the Beastie Boys, he's probably the best white rapper. Informer is a GREAT song.

Snow is OK, but ice sucks, and we tend to get more ice than snow. I'm thinking of just hibernating this year.

I love snow. Or at least I will for probably another month, then I am going to want it to go away.
