Nah, weather is diffrent alla round the globe, and the US is still enough of a melting pot, that I've gotten to expoerience first hand people's reaction to new weather several times. I remember chatting with a man who had JUST immigrated over from South Africa that same year when it started to snow. He had never seen it before and was acting like he won the lottery. That was a good day.
That isn't all that bad. There are usually a few days each year when it gets to -20°C with -26°C or colder for a wind chill. I am not sure you would even know what wind chill is, but it is a very real factor where I live.
Yeah, wind chill... makes you lose heat faster than if it were a still day.
I guess it's just like the Monsoons here in India. It's a beautiful season if you are sitting inside your home, with a hot cup of tea and hot snacks, and listening to a song... Watching it drizzle endlessly, with the cool wet wind blowing at you gently, makes you feel splendid and refreshed... sometimes even poetic. (Not to mention that it comes as a welcome relief after the hot summer months here.)
But just in case you have school or office... it becomes a struggle sometimes (umbrellas and raincoats don't always work, the horizontal component of the rain's velocity vector drenches you thoroughly ;) ). Of course, many people enjoy getting wet in the rain... but for me, indoors is a better place during the Monsoons! :D
I was wondering: just like there's a politics thread named "Politics. The feel in your country." (though I never bothered to take a peek inside it), we can have another thread about weather and climate in general, and name it: "Weather. The FEEL in your country." XD
