There's snow near where I live . . . but oddly enough, Philadelphia tends to be warmer than the burbs that are only 10 or so miles away from it. Our temperature has stayed above the 20's so far. Our entire winter has been extremely warm. Just last week it was in the 70's. God knows why.

You live in a colder climate than I do, but technically winter doesn't start until December 21st (22nd?).  Of course, here in Oregon winter doesn't really exist.  We have a 360-day-per-year rain festival in Portland. ::)  The five days a year that it doesn't rain, it just doesn't do anything, especially snow.  If, somehow we do get snow, half an inch is enough to send the schools into panic mode and people with SUVs manage to get themselves stuck at the side of the road.  It's pathetic.

I have to say that I did not give this thread much of a lifespan when it started, but now I must admit that you, Sorrow, can be quite adamant when defending your positions. Perhaps one day you will tire of discussions about personal hygiene and join the ranks of those who are welcomed and praised everywhere by moderators and the general public alike: the duellists in the religious and political threads which can start out as little as with the question what Kelsey's haircolour might be. Although there is a hint of feminism in here I still must say that it is way to personal to make it an earnest debate about stuff which does not belong here.

Oh well, carry on.

Argument regarding aesthetics (or any matter), as long as everyone believes that personal views should be respected, will always degenerate to personal attacks. Such is the characteristic of "tolerance," methinks, for it denies arguments any proper standards of judgment. I must admit ,howeve, that shaming the opponent into submission is quite enjoyble and effective.

Borsook, it's spring here. We only get snow in the highest mountains of the south-eastern states in winter. I would have been confused by your eagerness to leap out into the snow in a wtf? sort of way, but knowing that you despise umbrellas, all becomes clear. I bet you like hiking.
I know it's time for a new thread because my eyes are refusing to read any of Sorrow's further comments, and Notasophist is not making any sense to me. I'm usually quite good at detecting irony and humour, but I'm sad to say, I just don't understand.

A quote from Stephen King's The Shining which probably is a reference to Poe's " THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH". At the end it says "And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."

Ah.
Is this an allusion to the nature of the untimely demise of this thread?

Yeah, I tend to avoid party invitations like that Black Raven mentioned.

You bet ya! I spent most of my childhood living on the border of a forest (or a wood? In Polish we have "las" and "puszcza" the second one being much, much larger and that was the second kind) Now I live in a huge city and I'm getting pretty restless. BTW last night it was seriously snowing and everything is white white white! ;D

I like the snow. It's pretty and cold like myself.  ;)

I miss being in the woods at the grandparents house during winter. Winter walks are so romantic.

In my city it's grey and cold...
And people don't clean up the mess their dogs make, so it's grey, cold and full of shit :D.
Yeah.
And judging by the smell, people use plastic bootles to warm their houses ;D.

I so love Poland ;D.

Hey it's not the dogs' fault people built cities around them. It'll all quite quickly disolve which cannot be said about the mess people make  and don't clean up after themselves.
EDIT>PS don't we live in the same city?

Nope. I live in the infamous City of Executioners :).

But it's people's fault that they don't clean up the mess their dogs make.
It'll disolve...
