**For people who have access to below knee depth snow, this is a great low impact activity that works out the whole body in only yards at a time. Snow on grass is a cushion.**
So , yes....Ha ha...., its pretty easy to turn a snow sprint post into a winter post.
"Snow is beautiful> in my opinion!!"
Sure it looks nice. But like you said, your area, the pacific northwest, is warmer. Do you know what -20 to -40F ambient temp feels like, not including windchill? Well......it almost hurts.
Being able to "visit" winter in under a two hour drive is not the same as living in it...ha ha. But that would be a good mix though, i'd prob like that.
Dealing with snow all winter , having to constantly shovel/ snow blow, having a minimal of two weeks of below zero F. not being able to relax on my front steps in a T shirt is a hassle, ....most would agree!
I recently had the opportunity of buying a family members lake cabin surrounded by pine and tamarack to live in year round, but its in one of the coldest counties in United states, the coldest without mountains (past record of -60's F there).. As beautiful as it is, living there full time would be difficult in winter, but many do it.
I still had snow in early may. Now its already down to 40F at noon. Was a short summer this year.
That said, I try to make the best of it in our woods and lakes, skiing, winter fat biking, snow-shoeing ect when its above 10F (my cutoff). Two months would be perfect, and about
all I can handle.
