    Unhappy Snow Vs. Fire

    Well I know over in America and other near by countries there has been snow upon snow with the temp in the minuses. Down under were having sever fire warnings. It has been so hot, dry and windy. I have a fire plan set. But one question, would you prefer to have a blizzard or fire? At the moment I would prefer it to be snowing.

    Definitely snow. You can wait out a blizzard but not a fire. A fire is damaging and a blizzard isn't. Yes, you could get caught out in a blizzard but you can do things, like carry a survival kit, to get thru it.

    Horses and other animals are naturally equipped to deal with the cold to a certain degree and could survive a blizzard, as could we with the right tools.

    Fires will destroy everything in their path. As someone who is currently in one of the extreme fire zones for tomorrows ridiculous weather, I would give anything for even one flake of snow, although the animals would probably all die of shock.

    I think I would die of shock!

    Blizzard definitely. My truck can get through a blizzard. Fire, not so much.

    People have questioned my sanity when I bought a trailer and rarely use it. It was worth it for peace of mind.

    Odd you should ask this, as next week will be the one-year anniversary of me having to evacuate for a wildfire. Yes, in the middle of what was supposed to be winter! I'll take snow any day - it's great stuff for skiing on.

    This is just an aside, but America is not experienceing snow after snow. The US is so big that the winter weather varies hugely from area to area. We haven't had a flake of snow yet this year.

    However, as to your question, I agree that a blizzard is preferable to a fire.

    And where I am in BC Canada there has not been much snow either but a little further north BC has lots of snow and parts of Eastern Canada has had lots of snow too
    People in other counties don't realize how large Canada and the US are

    We have both conditions here and I would take blizzard conditions any day over fire conditions.
