I live in a part of the world where we do not get snow except on very rare occasions (like three or four times in 60 odd years!)
Like living in the north African desert regions in the heat, or 'snowbound' northern Scandinavia etc. I guess that person born to those weather conditions knows what living in them means from season to season.
Here we are so spoilt that we complain big time when the temps dip to 14C. We don't dress for 'the temp' or the cold, then grimace when the wind blows! Must say though, temps were really high for summer Jo'burg today - 34c-36C, it really was a day to keep cool inside.
