Reader: Bree whining about snow makes me laugh! Go to Wisconsin

Ugg boots? For Bree Davies, that's the best thing to come out of winter in Colorado. "Digging cars out of the snow, getting stranded for days inside my own house, standing in the cold waiting to get into a show, a movie or a restaurant -- these are all things I look forward to never doing again," she writes in Breeality Bites. "Being in the snow or cold willingly? I try not to at all costs."

But most readers do not share her sentiments. See also: - Dear snow: I'm sorry I hate you - Stop inviting me to ruin your camping trip - Photo: First Colorado snow of the season

Says pitchman101:

Funny thing is that I moved to Colorado (Denver specifically) in 1983 because it has 300 plus days of sunshine and VERY LITTLE snow, as opposed to were I'm from -- that being Wisconsin.

So listening to you whine about the cold and snow really makes me laugh! You don't now what cold and snow really is.
