In less than 12 hours, I get to drive in fresh snow yet again! Yayy! Not. I too am ready to move someplace warmer!

Thankfully, this time around we're only due for a little snow down in the valley (I'm in Layton, Utah). But the mountains are supposed to get a lot (1-2 feet, or 30-60 cm). And it could be much worse, I could be stuck in NYC or other huge east coast cities where they're supposed to get slammed!

I understand the resentment of anyone who lived with a snow, ice and -0C', -24C' or few times even less C'.
It is totally different story, if one goes for skiing holiday to living with snow and freeze.
Firstly it is very costly and extremely uncomfortable. I use to hate dark short days, when at 8am was still dark on outside and 4pm as well.
I wouldn't change Australia for USA ... no-way, but not even for Europe I wouldn't go even for $ millions!

Hi Danna,
Sure there is the cold in winter but the USA has many good things as well. I moved from Queensland to New Jersey and love it there.
No mosies in summer. (or the wiinter)
Cheaper fuel, ($3.52 a gallon compared to $5.72 in Aus)
Polite and friendly young people,
Great food,
1187 television channels,
no telstra,
NYC 30 minutes away,
almost any gun I want, (no M4's where I live)
my F350 truck,
Super safe place to live.

Australia is not like in the Croc Dundee movies and the USA is not all like you see on TV. Our town had it's last murder 12 years ago and not many Australian town can say this. Both countries are fantastic.

When it comes to you, that's is what I thing:

"De gustibus non est disputandum"

Never the less I wouldn't live nowhere else in the world!
I love Australia, it's my much loved home ....
Yes, I'm very patriotic and proud of it!

Ciao Dana

Sorry Danna but I have to disagree. Ploughing through metre deep virgin snow is the best fun you can have in a fourby :-)
Cheers Craig..............

HaHaHa...
How about when it starts melting and that beautiful snow become awful dirty watery sh*t ..... a specially in towns and cities ..... how would like that? You probably went on snow to Alps for day or two. Believe me, it is all together different story if you must permanently live with it.
