1) NO! And I'm never likely too.
2) Huge snow drifts I think
3) Yes and I made the most of it like a kid.

1. No! And I never will.

2. Besides snow (which is just weird to see in Southern Arizona) it would either be snow when just the day before was 80. Or when rain comes from a clear sky.

3. Nope, we never really do here.

I used to live in Southern Arizona when I was little. I saw it snow there at least once--and those are moments when everyone runs for their cameras...

1--No, but I have relatives that have...and would do it again if they could. But me, no thank you. I can't do that. Though I did learn how to shoot a rifle when I was a kid (don't remember shit about it except that it hurt my shoulder like hell--MEH)
2--You would ask me something that I have to think about on a day that I've had VERY little sleep. ;-)
3--HELLZ NO! Okay, sorta...others did and tried to get me involved with them in it, but they finally realized that I HATE winter and there was nothing they could do to make me like it. ;-)

1. No, and I never will. I don't believe in guns.

2. A sand storm. That was absolutely wild.

3. Yes, yes I have! And I love them even more now than I did as a kid.

1. No.
2. Probably the recent October snowstorm.
3. Oh, yes, plenty. NYers are very shy of snow, and we get some blizzards in the wintertime where the entire city shuts down.

Speaking of snowstorms, how are you guys doing with the snowstorm that hit Alaska?

1. Only if I could hunt hunters. We have sick gits over here (I'd use a stronger word than gits, but I may offend somebody!) trying to bring back fox hunting - which is a disgusting practice - /end rant

2. In Norway - skies were black, thunderstorm, but way in the horizon, the sun was shining through on to a lake - it was beautiful.

3. Sadly not - we don't generally get enough snow, though recently each winter it's been getting worse!

  1. Only for rabbits with a .22. Unless you count stalking cutouts of human beings in woodland armed with an L1A1 SLR loaded with 7.62 x 51mm NATO cartridges during a training exercise with the British Army.

  2. Either being so entranced watching a mini tornado swirling its way along a ridgeline in the English Lake District and then being knocked flat by it or the intense green sky that pressaged an absolutely torrential downpour that left streets in Birmingham (England not AL.) awash.

  3. Oh yes. :D

1. Yes Deer and Elk hunting in WA state Love it... 2. It was raining thunder lightening & a dangergous flood that took out the basement of the cabin I was living in. I was holding onto a tree watching it happen
3. yes a few yrs ago when I had a wonderful boss who understood 1-2ft of snow in a day was a good reason for a snow day

1) Only Snipe hunting
2) While walking out of the Costco Bay Doors, I saw a green sky, yes GREEN sky. Then it rained like I've never seen it rain before (and I live in Seattle)
3) Sure many times. Again, I live in Seattle. We don't do snow.

Never been formally hunting, like for deer or turkey, duck etc.

wandering around w/ a b-b gun as a pre-teen, yes.

Weirdest weather...
I'd have to say a day a >LONG< time ago, I think it was summer time, early teen years. overcast, with low clouds, and they're justing boiling clounds, constantly changing not just blowing in one direction, then they had this weird green kind of color. I thought for sure a tornado was forming. And we very very very rarely get tornado's around here.

1. Never.

2. Standing in a classroom on the corner of a building, surrounded by torrential rains on both sides, and not being able to see out of any of the windows because there was so much rain being flung against them. It turned out that a small tornado formed during the storm about 15 km away.

3. No, I'm Canadian, we can take it. ;-) Actually, there have been days where there should have been a snow day.

1. No, and it's pretty unlikely at this point. Just fishing.
2. The freak hailstorm that totaled my car. I also saw another freak hailstorm that had tornadoes not too far off. And occasionally, it snows when the sun is shining.
3. No, though there have been times when people at work called in because they were snowed in.

1. Nope.
2. Hmm...I don't know. Crazy large hail?
3. Yep! Nine in a row during snowpocalypse earlier this year. Which is fun, because I never had them growing up (I'm from CA).

1. Have you ever been hunting?
Nope. I don't really object to the guns/bows/whatever, I'm just too domesticated to go out and kill my own dinner.

2. What is the strangest weather you have ever seen with your own eyes?
Toss up between the time is freaking SNOWED in Bantry Ireland while I lived there (The Gulf Stream pretty much guarantees is NEVER snows that far southwest.) Or the Creepy Rape For of Doom that liked to settle over my college campus at night from time to time. We're talking legit, Insdutrial Revolution London Fog that you could be abducted in and no one would notice.

3. Have you ever had a snow day as an adult?
Possibly, but not since I graduated from college. I now work in one of the few industries that HAS to be open 24/7/365.

1. No, and I'm unlikely too. Apart from the fact that we really don't do that here, I don't think I should shoot at a living thing. Now targets, that's a different game altogether. Love target shooting with my air rifle.

2. Snow drifts.

3. Yes! Lol.

1. No, I draw the line at fishing. And even then, if I catch a fish, I can't bring myself to kill it. So I'd rather not catch any fish.

2. An insane thunderstorm that hit a football stadium in the middle of a game of American football. The noise was something awful and the wind was so strong that it tossed players about as they were fleeing for cover.

3. No. We don't do snow days in Finland. Even if the roads are blocked with 2 metres of freshly fallen snow, everyone is expected to get to school and work on time. :)
