I'm guessing it's similar to how things are in the UK. Snow is quite unpredictable here; sometimes we get none and sometimes we get quite a lot. Because it's so hit and miss, our government doesn't bother investing in infrastructure to deal with snow because it's cheaper and easier to basically just SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING for a few days until it goes away.

You do realize snow and ice buildup will fuck with the conductor rail or overhead lines on an electric train, right? Running the train under those conditions runs the risk of losing power to the whole train or blowing an entire line. The time, resource and maintainence costs of shutting a train line down for a while vastly outweighs the costs of it fucking up.

Part of the fear with driving is, in fact, other people. Even if you trust your own skills, you can't trust everyone else's, and snow makes that ten times worse, especially on the highway with dipshits who go 65 even if the roads are pure slush. Plus the other stuff that comes with winter, like black ice. Also I'm poor and can't afford snow tires.

Unfortunately, other drivers ARE retards. Had a snow plow dumper nearly take out my WRX, only avoided getting hit by intentionally getting sideways. And that's just one instance of stupid people driving in snow. WRX can be lots of fun, in the snow, but it's still incredibly limited. Don't let the picture fool you. Go into an open field, feel every bump from the not so smooth surface and you'll understand. Shredding the fuck out of a soccer field covered with a couple inch of snow sure is fun tho. The green chucked out the back provides lots of laughter.

Not the guy you responded to, but it's pretty obvious that you're not really used to actually driving in the snow.
There's a huge difference in driving, and sliding around a parking lot.

It's clear you don't know how to drive in snow. If you can actually drive in snow, know what the limit of your tires and grip are/braking points, and going appropriate speeds it's not much different than driving in the rain. Unless you're running all seasons/summer tires. Which you're a dumbfuck for anyways.

If you want to say other dumbfucks on the road make it dangerous then sure.

Driving on ice is a completely different matter

If you don't think driving in snow is inherently more dangerous than driving on dry roads than you're a fucking retard.

Driving in the rain is also more dangerous though not as dangerous as snow.

>Unless you're running all seasons/summer tires

>>133655730
>If you want to say other dumbfucks on the road make it dangerous then sure.
Yes. This. This makes it more dangerous. Did I really have to spell this out?
I explicitly said that I had to drive more carefully. There is also a huge difference in driving a normal vehicle and a vehicle like the Mercedes Sprinter with a full loaded back in the snow.

>Driving on ice is a completely different matter
You know what usually comes with snow? Minus degrees.
You know what happens to wet roads when there's minus degrees? Ice.

I've been driving for about 4 years in this job. I know how to drive a car, and I know for a fact it's more dangerous to be on the road with snow.

I never have a much of an issue driving through snow. Ice though..... FUCK ICE.

Takes like 4 hours just to thaw my car out from a night of heavy icy rain. And nothing scares me more than driving on that shit.

You northern fuckers will never know the pleasures of riding your bike to the beach after school and having fun til the sun goes down.

I've lived in Boston and let me tell you "winter wonderland" is fun for one, maybe two, days. Then it becomes hellish and annoying to have shovel, to scrape ice off your car, to navigate roads with people speeding on ice. You can't go outside much because it's fucking cold as shit.

The North is for retards who convinced themselves cold is nice.

People don't understand how region-centric most of the shit foreigners see of Japan is. That fucking kotatsu that's in every goddamn winter episode of anime ever produced isn't even "Japanese" culture, it's just a Honshu and primarily Kanto thing. Hokkaido residents will literally never see one because they have actual fucking household heating.

www. I'm from a northern state known for beaches. I hate the beach. Sand and sun and salt and tourists. Fuck that noise. Beaches are the worst. I'm moving to a landlocked state so I don't have to deal with that nonsense anymore.

Japan's climate is almost exactly like the US east coast; lots of humidity with occasional hurricanes (or typhoons in moonspeak).

Hokkaido is at the latitutde of New England so its climate is like that; Kyushu is at the latitude of Georgia. Tokyo is at about the level of North Carolina, so yeah, a relatively small amount of snow freaks them out.

In Southern CA you don't have to drive on snow or ice and spend four months of the year swaddled in at least three layers AND you don't spend the summer feeling like your going to pass out from heat exhaustion and having to douse yourself in bug spray. No tornadoes or hurricanes either.

"heavy snowfall" in this context just means "a large enough volume in a short enough span of time that it impaired the function of transit before the appropriate services could be mobilized to clear it.

In this case, the rails of the train got covered, which make it unsafe conditions to operate until such a time that they can salt and clear them.

Certain places on the planet are not built to withstand certain conditions.

In my neck of the woods a half foot of snow and near zero degrees temperatures would be a world ending catastrophe. I'm dead serious. But a foot of rain is a mere inconvenience

In NewYork a foot of snow and near subzero temperature is just an average winter. But a few feet of rain would be like noahs flood and fuck everything.

DRESS IN MOTHERFUCKING LAYERS

My old roommate was Saudi, first winter in boston in one of the snowiest winters on record. He bought a single really expensive snowcoat, a pair of boots, and glove and a hat. He thought that'd be enough.

It wasn't.

Have long sleeve shirts, cover with sweater or sweatshirt, cover with jacket. If it's less than 10 degrees outside, or if you're going to spend more than an hour outside, wear your pajamas under your pants as long underwear. Add an extra sweater layer in between if it's below 0. And if anything gets really wet, change it as soon as possible.

My first two years there were warm, just like how this winter is shaping up. Although the snowfall amounts felt about normal the previous two years, it was awfully fucking cold. You'll get blizzards and frigid cold temps in your time there anon, don't you worry. Hope you have a massive backlog when that comes, cause you won't want to go outside after a month of subzero temps.

The best. And winter gives me time to actually work on the backlog and other hobbies, during summer, if it's more than 5C I'm generally outside. One of my favourite things about Canada; we actually get seasons, as opposed to 'slightly hotter' and 'slightly wetter'. Each season lets you appreciate the others more. Sort of: "this isn't going to be here forever, so might as well make the most of it."
