    Default snow or rain

    As I sit here and watch the snow fall I am remembering all of the caching I did this year in the rain. This made me wonder which is better,caching in the rain or snow? I thought I would put this out for a vote. RAIN or SNOW? I hate snow!!! I hate rain!! With that being said I will chose rain and yes you must pick one or the other!

    I'd rather cache in the snow but no snow down here so am stuck with the rain.

    Born and raised in the shadow of Katahdin.....I hate the cold, I've never liked the cold and you'll never get me to like the cold. Survey says.....cache in a light rain.

    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    You're going to get wet either way so I'll take the snow, it's prettier.

    Default Snow!

    You can't snowshoe "on" rain. When you fall down into a pile of snow, it's "cool" When you fall into a puddle, you might have to go to the ER.

    Rain has acid in it, as in acid rain. Snow is just snow, "pure as the driven snow." I don't like acid, period!

    If somebody puts out a cache that is "munchkin challenged", rain won't help at all. A snowbank will help a cacher like Dot be able to reach a cache that would otherwise be beyond her reach.

    And last, but not least, frozen snow makes ice. Ice can be crushed and used to make martini's. Rain will only dilute the drink and make me gag!

    It's SNOW for this cacher for sure!

    Snow!!! Snow!!! Snow!!!

    But I do like rain too, as long as it's not too much.
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    Default We'll be glad it's snow this weekend.

    It would be very hard for us to snowshoe and winter camp if it were rain.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Default Why do I always have to disagree?

    If it's warm, I'd rather have the rain! I love t-shirt weather.

    And if acid rain wasn't the hoax it was, wouldn't it occur in snow as well?

    However, I'll take snow any day along with the freezing temps before I enjoy 85+ temperatures!
