"I'm super glad I never grew up in a place that snows"
Hah, you don't know what you are missing. Of course, you could do a visit to the South Island. Lots of snow further south. Actually, snow can be quite pretty and romantic, as long as you don't have to drive much in it, although, sometimes that can be fun as well, even with two wheel drive. My best snow car was my 62 Morris MiniMinor 850. That car could go anywhere. The Alfas have never been too bad, the best has been the 91 164S, and the worst, the GTV6s.
We don't get much snow in Seattle at all, maybe every 6-7 years for anything worth talking about. The snow we do get is usually washed away by the rains rather quickly, maybe within the same day, or sometimes a week or so. The area is hilly, so it does depend on where you are. Global climate change has reduced the amount and frequency of our local snow quite a bit, much less than when I was growing up in the 40s and 50s, being able to go sledding in the neighborhoods then for a couple of weeks pretty much every winter.
The mountains are only about an hour or so away, though, so there is lots of skiing and snow boarding there, day and night. Maybe the best of both worlds.
