It's about 4 1/2 feet deep here with temps around -20.

What you have doesn't look so bad, but still, I feel your pain!

Year round riding weather would bore me. I love riding my motorcycle, but there are many activities I enjoy doing as well.

We don't get enough snow here for significant snow based recreation. I do, however, lose 5-10 working days per year where I can't ride the bike to work. I just wish we didn't get the heat/humidity...

Cool

I'm glad we get the four seasons, it's what I've always been used to, except when I lived in 'Vegas, & constant sunshine gets monotonous, but I suppose some people prefer that type of thang!

It was so cold outside last night that I went to my curling club to warm up.
Seriously, it was -22C outside and +5 above the playing surface. The lounge was +22C and the beer was.... well, it was agreeably cold.
