Because by this afternoon it will be a cold, wet, muddy mess.


EvetsYenoham t1_j5l8rw3 wrote

Exactly this point. I love snow. But Pittsburgh can never sustain cold enough temperatures to keep it from becoming a muddy slushy bog within 48 hrs or less. We had f’in thunderstorms 3 days ago!

To be fair, that's not even slightly normal even for here in the Winter.

Last night, the trees were covered in snow and it was all over the ground. Today, everything looks grey with a little bit of snow on the ground lol.

Right? Snow is cool the day of, then it’s inconvenient and ugly for days after.

The scenery is grand, but not everyone lives near it. It's also indicative that my yard will be a swamp when it melts, the dog will get muddy, it's miserably cold, there's no sun, AND EVERYONE FORGETS HOW TO DRIVE.

I’m here in Chester County. A lot of us are complaining that there’s been no snow. It’s ugly out there. A few inches of snow to cover the fields and woods followed by a sunny day would certainly cheer us up.

Agreed from Lancaster city. I have a husky mix and the happiest you ever see him is with an inch or more of snow

The snow arrives on Wednesdays morning. Get out by Brickerville and you'll feel so much better.

I'll believe it when I see it lol. We've barely had flurries. I've only been out that way once to go to the Wolf Sanctuary and it was much colder up there

Im glad theres no snow in SE PA. I hate shoveling.

I’ll take cold and snow any day over summer heat and humidity. One of the best things about this time of year is no yard work.


Calint t1_j5knjcp wrote

yeah riding on a mower and drinking a beer is way worse than shoveling a drive way in the cold.


courageous_liquid t1_j5kvdrp wrote

the most I've ever learned about neighborhood lore was out drinking a beer at 3am with one of the block oldheads while shoveling all of our neighbors' sidewalks


pts1354 t1_j5l1mqx wrote

You’re right. Nothing seems to get neighbors together who rarely talk otherwise like a good snow storm. Stick some beers in the snow, good times.


HotDamn18V t1_j5kwsoc wrote

Can't do that when you're in hilly-ass SWPA. Mowing my lawn is 1 and 3/4 hours of grueling pushing a mower up a hill. And it's so hot and gross out here in the summer anymore. It's truly a bullshit experience.

Bruh, 3-stage self propelled snow blower, with a cup holder. Bonus: It stays cold!

Grew up there. Vowed never to move back. 38 degrees and over an 1" of rain is not a winter I want to be part of. 10 degrees and 1-2' of storms is what I'm after.

So thus I live near the artic cicle now.

Now that I work from home, it mostly doesn't bother me

PA is a very scenic state. But, taxes are high, gas tax is ridiculous, annual auto inspections and terrible roads makes me want to split from here

Should we fund more road maintenance from general funds? Less than half of road maintenance actually comes from use taxes today.


Waru_ t1_j5lguh4 wrote

If you have an early morning commute it’s easy to hate

Though today wasn’t bad at all, nothing sticking and not too cold.


sintactacle t1_j5ld8fa wrote

It's the road salt/brine that literally eats away at our vehicles that I hate. You can do your best to postpone it but the salt always wins. Then your vehicle, that is mechanically sound, is off to it's new owner in Ohio after it fails to pass a PA safety inspection due to no longer being structurally sound.


chuckie512 t1_j5m6f3o wrote

I don't understand why we have to salt every side road for these snows that stick around for less than a day anyway. Kills cars, roads, bridges, and wildlife.


Argercy t1_j5oa289 wrote

Because people like my boomer parents who are retired and don't go anywhere don't have anything better to do than call the city all day and complain and threaten to call local news stations if someone doesn't come to clear their street.


SyzygySynergy t1_j5lgrhn wrote

Honestly, I don't hate it. I dont hate how it looks, it can be completely stunning and emotion altering. However, what I do hate is the upkeep of everything. The sidewalks, the driveways, cleaning off the cars, needing two sets of tires, paying for extra maintenance on vehicle because of rust AND salt, and then don't even get me started on the horrible management of the roads themselves and them needing to be remaining clear, taken care of, salted, repaired in warmer months, etc. And yet for most of us, they aren't.

Those are the things that make me hate that. Even as beautiful as it is, it disrupts so many things and becomes so dangerous because of mismanagement that is out of the common resident's hands to be able to do anything about other than take care of and push more money at the things that get affected by that and the mismanagement.


brokenleftjoycon t1_j5lgzds wrote

Great to look at but then everything is wet, cold, and covered in salt as soon as you’re out the door.


kuweiyox t1_j5lovxq wrote

We don't even get snow in Philly anymore. Last time we had a decent snow fall was like 6-7 years ago


drewbaccaAWD t1_j5m76gc wrote

It's nice for about four hours and then I'm sick of it. For one, I have a lot of sensitivity to light so it gives me headaches and I struggle to wear sunglasses over my glasses, can't stand transitions, and can't wear contacts so headaches and eye strain are par for the course here (I should really look into getting lasik).

Not to mention, if the roads are bad I'm not getting out to the scenic spots and as soon as it starts melting everything is brown and icky.

And you can't avoid that white means cold.. would be a great view from the toasty warm house though.

I preferred living on the West Coast in terms of snow.. mostly avoided it, but if I wanted to drive 45minutes into the mountains I had a winter wonderland to play in and then leave when I was tired of it.


Critical_Band5649 t1_j5oz2i7 wrote

You can get prescription sunglasses. I switch out my regular glasses for my prescription sunglasses I leave in the car. I spent less than $20 on them. It might not make you love the snow but it makes all driving easier.


drewbaccaAWD t1_j5sf4ip wrote

I should look into that, especially for $20. It would definitely make for safer driving in some situations.

I actually considered getting some prescription sunglasses that wrap around the face a bit, for the sake of bicycle riding but the only frames I could find were camo and not quite what I was looking for (typical Walmart, lol); I really should have followed up on that but then it just fell to the back of my mind.

I'm due for a fresh prescription so I appreciate the reminder!

No, I love looking at this. I only hate looking at this out of my front and back windows

It's definitely beautiful, but I hate snow because I'm the one who's responsible for clearing it.


uraniumstingray t1_j5l1pqg wrote

I lived there for 22 years and after I turned like 13, I hated it. Shoveling, standing in the cold at the bus stop, even just walking from a car to a store was miserable. Then I went to college and had to walk to class and stand at the bus stop again. And after it snowed it would be wet and mushy and gray. Absolutely disgusting.


Finrodsrod t1_j5ljq9q wrote

Cause snow causes drivers along my 1 hour commute to instantly drop 30 IQ points, and I really don't like getting into an accident.

What do you expect your living in a desert environment. I live winter but will take a few degrees of warming anytime.

Hivesthebutler t1_j5o3i09 wrote

Because many of us don’t get to look outside and gaze at it and say “how pretty”. We wake up before it’s light out, have to go out in the cold and trudge through that bullshit. If it’s a big snow and it stays cold, in a couple of weeks, te “beautiful snow” turns to grey dirty piles everywhere, making the bleak February days even worse. Fuck the snow, bring on global warming.

Who mows TWICE A WEEK? I mow like once every 2-3 weeks.

Either way, id still say that shoveling is worse than mowing the lawn especially during a massive showstorms. Mowing the lawn is about on par with 3 inches of snow IMO. Anything beyond that is And given we can get up to 2-3 feet some storms...ugh.


HotDamn18V t1_j5kyewm wrote

Where I live in SWPA, it rains constantly and the grass grows so fast that I have to or it'd be too long for my push mower to handle it. Plus it's hilly here, so I have to use the push mower, as a riding mower would roll over and kill me. I hate it more than any other chore ever.


JonWood007 t1_j5l22s6 wrote

Push mower. Get something gas/battery powered. There's a huge middle ground between push mowers and riding ones.


HotDamn18V t1_j5l9ufl wrote

It's gas powered, but I have to push it. Self propelled are too heavy and slip on the steep hills. Electric wouldn't last for the job and are similarly heavy, plus I don't have the money to throw at it. So I got the lightest gas mower for the job, and it sucks, but it's what does the job.
