As long as I don't have to drive in it or shovel much of it, I love it!  ;)  I don't even really mind shoveling it as long as I don't have to hurry.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
