People Attempt To Explain Snow To People Who Have Never Experienced It

Snow is a natural part of life for some, but many may never get to see it in real life.

It would be hard to imagine what it's like to have soft specks of ice fall on top of you from the sky. Seeing snow in movies and on television, it's always portrayed as beautiful and appearing only around Christmas. But people who live in areas where it snows know that it can be pretty, and also a nuisance.

Redditor u/ambermage asked, "People who have experienced snow; what is it like?" and received both poetic and blunt descriptions of what it's really like to deal with snow.

10. Beautiful and terrifying 

When everything is blanketed and not touched, it's beautiful and everything is absolutely silent (at least where I live). But it is terrifying to drive on poorly plowed roads. Once it starts melting and there is some snow piles here and there it looks ugly, especially when it turns grey/black from all the cars.

9. Fun... at first

"Fun for the first few days then you really would just like feeling back in your fingers and toes."

8. People forget how to drive

"Beautiful to look at when its untouched. But a nightmare to drive or walk in.

For everyone who's saying that driving in the snow is fun, you're right. Personally I find alot of other people dont know how to drive in the snow, so I avoid going out if I dont have too."

7. Avoid yellow snow

"Looks pretty the first day. Then turns brownish and it's gross to see where the dogs have peed. Not to mention if it gets any warmer it turns into ice"

6. How you feel about snow depends on your age

"As a child it's fun because you can throw snowballs, build snowmen, make snow-angels, and go sledding.

As an adult it sucks cause you have to shovel, drive in it, and after a long winter it's just brown/gray and gross looking. And your car gets full of dirt and salt."

5. Heavy...

Heavier than you would think. Shoveling a driveway with a foot of snow feels like shoveling a foot of dirt off your driveway

4. Snow games and glasses don't mix

"When it snows you don't feel wet. You feel wet some minutes later.

When it snows a lot, sounds are filtered and everything looks more silent.

Snowball fights scare me because I wear glasses and it can be dangerous."

3. Lazy rain

"Snow is like lazy rain. If you don't mind the rain and know how to be prepared, you won't mind snow. I personally love the snow. I think cold weather is worthless without snow around."

2. I love this feeling

"It nice when you are outside in a snow storm and it feels like you are the only person on the planet."

1. It sounds how glitter looks...

Giphy

"There's different kinds of snow. There's the sticky snow you can make snowmen and snowballs out of. When sticky snow falls and then the temperature drops really low it gets really hard and you can't do much with it.

Then there's the powdery snow that blows around in the wind and is good for skiing and and snowboarding and sledding. It feels like you're walking on the moon when it's freshly fallen. Sometimes in the morning if you listen closely you can hear it blowing around and it sounds how glitter looks.

A hard layer forms over powdery snow when the sun shines and melts the top layer and then it hardens over night. It's fun to walk on because it makes a crunchy sounds but it's still soft on the bottom...

Depending on how much powdery snow is underneath you can put your whole legs under.

Then there's slush. It usually happens on roads and parking lots and its like someone took a freezee/icee/slushee and dumped it everywhere. It forms puddles and is hard to drive in but fun to jump in with rain boots in the spring.

Sometimes in the middle of winter it will get above freezing and slush will form but then freeze during the night If it doesn't get plowed off the road before it freezes then ridges where tires were will freeze and that's also hard to drive on."

People Divulge Their Favorite 'Rich Person Hobbies'

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.

Admit it.

You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.

And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.
