Just heard someone offhandedly say they hadn't and it got me curious.

I was probably 26 or 27 when I first saw snow. I don't often travel into the frozen wasteland of the north during winter.

Saw it a few times, been in it twice, NEVER have to see it again in my lifetime.

I once heard someone ask "when it snows, how do you find the stuff on you lawn?"

For the reverse, I'll see super steep, downward sloping driveways in places like California and think "that must be a bitch to shovel in winter".

I only see a light dusting of snow a couple times a year with the odd year of a half foot maybe... on the ground. I love snow, wish it snowed more here.

I know it's not the same, but I sort of feel like it's saying "I'm 26, and I've never seen rain". To me, snow should be something you don't even recall seeing the first time. I must have been less than 6 months old when I first saw it.

I can't imagine someone who has never felt the exhilaration of downhill skiing/snowboarding/sliding/snowmobiling.

Seriously. So awesome.
Mankind's only chance is to harness the power of stupid.
