I have sixlets.
I remember when I was a little kid, we had snow all the time during winter. Then recently there were a few winters where it was just ass-cold but no production, no snow, no nothing. Just cold. That's annoying. My thought is, if it's going to be that cold, it ought to snow. Otherwise it's all show and no snow. Er, go. (If ASCII supported the character symbol of three dots in a triangle which in logic means "therefore", I'd post that here, but I can't find it. Get it...ergo...)
Um, anyway, so yeah, there for a while there was no snow, just coldness. I think it was El Nino. So last year and now so far this year we've actually gotten decent amounts of snow again. That's much better.
