What do we get? We get some cold in Tuscaloosa as I said, MAYBE some snow here or there, but it's usually still nice enough to where you don't hate being outside. What does a snow storm look like to us? Well, this:
You can go for walks and you don't have to brush snow off your car or worry about salting your driveway. People will still roll down their car windows to yell ROLL TIDE ROLL! You don't have to bundle up in full down gear, hats, gloves, and scarves (although some still do). Do we miss the summer nights? Absolutely. Is winter bearable? Again, absolutely (check out the climate facts). The north is pretty, but I'm not a 4-seasons type of guy. I don't care if there's a White Christmas. I want an Alabama Championship and an ice cold beer without the ice cold weather. I want my car sitting in my driveway, snow and salt free. I want to put on jeans and a light jacket, not boots. That's my kind of winter.
