I had managed to avoid snow/ice for 30 years until last week when I traveled to Minneapolis for work. Saw a lot of snow/ice and negatory temperatures last week.

I also grew up in Buffalo, as a kid that's how we earned our Christmas money, shoveling snow. The blizzard was crazy no school for two weeks.

First and last time I ever saw it, I was 30. Stayed firm 2 days before I put my foot down and forced the family to head back south. 58 now and the plan is to never see it again.

I lived in Wisconsin for over 40 years.
I plowed or moved more snow than most people will ever see.
I snowmobiled thousands of miles.
Moved to Florida 15 years ago and never care to see snow again,
and the same goes for below zero temperatures!

Lived in Michigan for 41 years. Now live in Arizona. Whoever took my spot in Michigan...good luck.

I’ve seen snow about 5 times but only twice did it stay on the ground.
it normally melts as it hits the ground. The most I’ve seen is about an inch total. I love living in the Deep South.

This PITA will be making that move in a few months. And it will be a permanent move. Not trying to pour gasoline on the fire, but the Admiral is an even bigger and more opinionated PITA than myself.

Snowed in St. Pete 1977 at least a trace. Was able to collect enough to make a small snowball.

You Florida people think you are really entitled. I have only had good experiences on my trips down to the Keys so I wasn't aware of the hatred for any "out of state people". The guide I use for tarpon fishing said that 90% of his trips are for us northern a-holes and I would guess that's the way it is with most fishing guides.

What has the out of state people done so bad for you to develop so much hatred? Do you know how many people count on "northern money"? After reading all of the smartassed comments I am getting a whole new view of you people that seem to think you own the state.

Visiting is one thing. Moving here and trying to make Florida into the place you moved from, is another thing.

We don't care how you did it up nawth.

I am not sure. I am more interested in those that have NEVER seen snow rather than reliving the blizzard of '78 or three years in Alaska.

I think that was the OP's goal. I am curious, as well.

Seen it maybe 10 times total, with it actually sticking to the ground maybe 4 or 5. We get sleet or snow about every 4 or 5 years, and people go nuts.
