- The white dry snow on the bottom of jeans; it makes rewearing the same pair of jeans very difficult without washing first-or so I have heard....
- The impending doom that I am going to fall or slide ungracefully on the ice.
- It is a 100 times harder to leave the house when it is snowing, I think I was a bear in a past life; because all I want to do when it snows (or snow is on the ground) is hibernate.
- Roads become treacherous, and I actually start going the speed limit.
- I can't answer my touch phone because I am wearing gloves. And yes I have tried answering my phone with my nose, and the results are inconsistent.
- Car gets covered in a parking lot and then I can't find it and then I am the idiot that has to use their car alarm.
- Snow is only pretty and white for the first 5 minutes and then it becomes dirty and ugly.
- Depending on snowplows to plow the streets.
- Getting plowed into a parking spot and then having to spend 1-2 hours digging myself out.
- Delays in the airport.
- Interstates closed.
- Going through gas quicker because I have to start warming up my car (especially when there is ice on the windows).
- Shivering in my car until it warms up.
- Going to school when it is dark and leaving school when it is dark. It's like the sun takes a 3+ months vacation.
- When it snows (or is below zero for a while) I disbelieve in global warming; however, when it gets warmer again, I believe in it again.
- The added expenses (heating bill, gas).
- And the overall cold feeling and not being able to get warm.

First Snowfall of the Season
Today it snowed for the first time. Once the novelty of the first snowfall wore off (which was 5 minutes later), I returned to a snow Scrooge. Everyone probably remembers around the time they stop believing in Santa Claus. I stopped believing in snow November 2005. What is significant about that day? It is when there was 2 feet of snow that fell and I still had to attend college classes. Therefore, I realized my love for snow was rooted in the possibility that classes would be cancelled. It would be four years later until I had a snow day again (in graduate school), but I still hate snow. I hate snow for several reasons.
I think this URL truly represents my feelings towards snow as an adult. Happy future Snow Day to all you lucky kids who still get snow days! http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/2U9LOz/www.collegehumor.com/article/6428297/snow-days-then-and-now
