5 reasons why snow is better than rain

Subtitled: Why I actually hate March more than February*

  • Snow is cold, but a cold March rain is colder – this is directly related to the second point
  • Snow is polite while rain is like a 16 year old boy on a second date – it can’t keep its mitts off you. It invades every visible – and many non-visible parts of your body. The only protection is a giant golf umbrella, and that won’t fit in my purse, therefore, I’d never have it when I needed it. The worse snow does is sneak down the back of your neck and maybe tickle your feet. MUCH more civilized!
  • Because rain can’t keep its hands to itself, a cold March rain is COLDER than a winter snow. It is. Because I said so.
  • Snow is quiet and pretty. Rain is noisy and makes mud. (I actually like the sound of rain but the mud? I can’t forgive.)
  • Mud. MUDMUDMUD. A dog and a 6 yo boy mean that we will have mud EVERYWHERE for the next 2 months.

*February is at least up front. February sucks and we all know it. It doesn’t pretend to be anything but the nasty last gasp of winter. But March? 50 degrees and sunny! 40 degrees and rainy! 30 degrees and snow! March is a tease.

    I think you’ve probably nailed them all. 🙂 Oh and snow comes in smaller quantities…as in the equivalent of rain would be soooooooo much more. I tell myself that all winter.

    nailed it.

    It is said that April is the cruelest month, but I share your opinion that March owns that honor.
