We have no shortage of snow here in BC which is nice if you like the cold, sledding, skiing, snowboarding, etc. Sadly it can create terrible driving conditions and a lot of people can't stand it.
The snow can be a very joyful family event if you let it, especially around here where there is tons of hills for sledding which is my favorite since its free family entertainment. Another excellent way to enjoy the snow is to eat it. Snow is safe to eat as long as you stay away from contaminated areas.
