Top 10 reasons why I love and hate the snow

Here are some reasons why many people don’t like the snow.

  1. In my opinion, the worst part of the snow is by far the fact that it is always freezing outside. When it is cold outside, your fingers sting, your eyes water and your whole body shivers.
  2. Driving in the snow is terrible. Unless someone teaches you how to drive in these conditions, be prepared to slide all over the roads and get stuck in the mountains of snow.
  3. Cars are always covered in snow and ice that seem impossible to clean, causing people to be late for school or work. It doesn’t matter if you drive or not, snow on cars is annoying and impacts everyone because it takes forever.
  4. Snow gets everywhere: in your house, in your clothes and shoes and in the car. The worst feeling is having snow fall into your boots and soaking your socks, making you uncomfortable for the rest of the day.
  5. Shoveling is considered a workout in my opinion. Exercise is something not a lot of people like, especially when they have to do it. Plus, the snow is heavy and could take hours to shovel if you have a long driveway.

Now on to the things I love about snow.

  1. Snow is very pretty when it first falls from the sky. I love looking out my window at the snow covered trees and the gorgeous flakes falling onto the ground below.
  2. Snow means the holiday season is upon us… and who doesn’t love the holidays?
  3. When it snows a lot, we as students are sometimes blessed with snow days. Snow days are the absolute best because we don’t have to go to school and we get to stay home, hang out with friends, sleep in and have a relaxing time.
  4. My favorite thing to do when it snows is to cuddle on the couch with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is one of those drinks people can’t wait to have when it starts getting cold because no one wants to drink a hot drink in summer.
  5. Fun winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, outdoor ice skating or simply just playing outside is always a plus when it starts to snow.
