It is so cold in the northeast USA right now and a massive snowstorm is working its way up the coast with several feet of snow. The friends of mine who ski say that cold and DRY is their favorite, makes skiing perfect they tell me.
Where I come from in the Philippines we have never even seen snow let alone several feet of it. I am glad to look out the window at it for a bit, and perhaps walk around in it for a brief walk. But cold is not my idea of fun. I like it warm.
