I must say being in Alaska is quite different. I love it here it is so laid back. I do have to comment on the roads though. In Pennsylvania a fleet of trucks would plow, salt, and sand all the roads at the first mention of snow or freezing rain. I guess up here they just don't care since we get so much all winter long. We have gone from feet of snow and -20 to freezing rain and 30 degrees in a matter of days. Let me just tell you what this does to the roads... any one have ice skates?!
