    I hardly walk outside when it's snowing. If I do, 9 times out of 10 it's because I'm shoveling snow. And I can't hold an umbrella while I shovel snow, so hood it is.

    Most of the time, however, I just wear my jacket and that works. The thing is waterproof and incredibly warm, not to mention insanely light weight. Gotta love Army/Navy surplus stores, they sell the best shit to wear.

    Umbrella in the rain and a hood in the snow, snow would weigh down an umbrella.

    I don't use either, I take my mind off how cold my ears are by pelting my little brother with snowballs.

    You're not supposed to use it like it's raining, it's more of a shield against the wind.

    Well usually I won't even wear my coat, regardless of the weather (I like both the snow and the rain so...).
    But even if I wear a coat I'll still have it open so my option would be nothing as well.

    When it snows it's cold so you'd probably end up wearing a big thick coat, most of which have hoods. Kind of a no brainer really [​IMG]

    I haven't used an umbrella since I was in elementary school. I don't mind getting wet with rain and snow [​IMG]...except I don't live in the snow anymore...and I would say it never rains here, but I seem to bring all the wet weather with me when I move because apparently it's hardly snowed back where I'm from [​IMG].

    If it rains I get wet (no, not in that way you pervert) and if it snows I get covered by it. There's no hiding from it for me.

    Some of you are funny.. Love the snow.... really ? Try to live outside in the tent with light clothes and you will wish you are in tropical weather. Indeed. Snowing is beautiful but shovel and walk outside in cold weather is crazy and uncomfortable. I dont want to hear the word "I am getting used to it"... No, you will have to stay outside for 2 months with light clothes and one blanket and a tent. You will hate it anyway. *GRIN*

    EDIT: Why no Umbrella ? Because it is sissy, man ?

    Like tj_cool and Minox, I don't use anything, or if really it's raining cats and dogs I use an umbrella, but usually I'll go without anything. it's just water, it dry.

    I can't vote since there isn't a option for no cover with snow |:


    I don't understand why people moan for snow then they moan for no snow [​IMG]
    I, for one, love snow [​IMG]
