Funny thing is my kids have never seen snow, and since I've had them with me it hasn't snowed once.

I live in the snow belt in Ohio. We usually get hammered a few times every year. I remember one year the day before Easter, it was like 55 degrees, and when we woke up the next morning, there was like 3.5 feet of snow on the ground! It didn't last long though.
