I know I live in northern Minnesota. I know northern Minnesota gets tons of snow every year. I know there are lots of fun winter activities to participate in. But I still don’t like snow and if I didn’t ever see snow again, I would not be sad.
I have never had the opportunity to live somewhere that did not get snow and as winter is quickly approaching Duluth, Minnesota I sit and wonder what it would be like to never see snow again?
I picture myself in shorts and t-shirts everyday. I picture myself going to the beach year round, and I picture myself never having to warm up my car before I have to go somewhere. I believe this out ways any winter sport one could participate in. Now don’t get me wrong, winter activities like snowmobiling and down hill skiing are fun, but if I never had to be cold again to the point of freezing, I would be okay with that. One season is the way to go.
Maybe if I owned a snow blower my opinion would change? As the “young buck” that I am, I am the proud owner of a shovel. Yes that shovel and I have been through many cold blistering mornings so I may get to work. I would gladly give up back pain if I could after shoveling 12 inches of snow. I would happily put that shovel in storage for eternity if I could.
Maybe if I didn’t have this golf obsession right now I would like snow? Having played more rounds of golf this summer than ever before, I am figuring out a way to get a southern vacation in this winter. I would gladly invest in some golf equipment over investing in snow removal equipment any day.
Maybe if I had moved out of Minnesota I would like snow? I’ve met many individuals who make the move to the southern United States and report the changing of seasons was deeply missed. Until I experience this for myself, I say you people are full of it.
Unfortunately for me I will experience another winter in Duluth, Minnesota this year. It will be my 32 winter I get to experience in my life and hopefully at some point in my life, snow and snow removal will not be in my future.
