You may love snow, you may hate snow, but in January, you are going to have snow if you live in upstate New York. I work in Binghamton, which is on the edge of New York's snowbelt. I live near Johnson City, about four miles from Binghamton.
In some years we get over 100 inches (254 cm) of snow.
We are realistic about snow here, even having a friendly annual competition with other snowbelt cities in New York State called the Golden Snowball.
It doesn't mean you have to like it.

And, people decorate with fake snow, too, directly from (well, maybe not) Buffalo, NY.
Poor Buffalo. Their reporting station was in the wrong place. Back in November, some places in and near Buffalo got almost 100 inches in one storm. Yes, one storm. I bet the residents wished they could have bagged that stuff up and sent it somewhere else. They should have won the 2014-15 Golden Snowball without effort, but are struggling.
The readers of my blog know how much I hate snow. And today, we are supposed to have "one of those days" snow, changing over to sleet and freezing rain.
But, as much as I hate snow, and appreciate snow melt products, I also think wishing Frosty the Snowman dead is a little harsh.
Do you like snow? Or do you agree that Frosty must Die?
