5. Snow attacks more people than Tigers
Questionable tales of tiger attack:
Stories of man-eating tigers tend to be grossly over-exaggerated. Natives tell of jewellery found in the stomachs of tigers.
Claims are often made that these things were consumed with the hands or arms of victims. These tales need to be viewed with some suspicion.
Tigers are very fussy about their food; they do not gulp huge chunks of it, but chew fastidiously and reject anything which is unusual. This cat would not normally swallow such a large lump of meat that jewellery and other items would also be eaten.

Now lets look at the evils of snow!

Snow kills hundreds of people in the United States each year. The primary snow-related deaths are from traffic accidents, overexertion, and exposure, but deaths from avalanches have been steadily increasing.

7. True it can be at that point...but I prefer to picture the beautiful images
Nothing better than a new fallen snow in the night...everything is so quiet and peaceful. And look at all the beautiful animals that go with it.

8. Yeah. After a night of snowfall, you come out, and it's all sunny
and beautiful, but quiet, you can hear the snow crunch under your feet, and my girlfriend is all excited and frisky about the snow, and we had a good night anyway, but then we play in the snow, ...
ah,
Those trees are beautiful, also the doggy, all white what is he? A wolf? What beauty.

9. That's an arctic fox....
Beautiful, huh? But, I do have a mixed Eskimo dog that looks very much like that when she's out in the snow.

11. He is beautiful. My cat looks somewhat like that, but with gray points.
It's the fluffy that makes them so hugable.

12. This only proves the point of the evils of snow
Because of evolution and the snowy habitat of these beautiful creatures,
Snow has forced them to evolve white pelts that just so happen to make pretty coats for asshole humans.
Snow has given them a death sentence.
Snow = Death!!

18. LOL! Well, now...nice deduction
But, maybe they didn't evolve to be white, they were always white and the beautiful snow is the only thing protecting them from us nasty humans. They can blend in and have some protection from being targeted from those blood thirsty Palin types shooting from helicopters.

I love snow! Especially since it usually means a day off from work!

Out here in farm country, a white winter means a sufficiently wet growing season.

How would you like to turn around to see this fine fellow following in your footsteps?

22. Big Kitty has nice, insulating fur and I don't! I suppose I'd be glad to see him following me
I could cuddle up to him and get warm in his furrz!

23. I used to live on a VERY untravelled street
for the most part, the only reason to be on it was if you lived on it or if you were visiting someone who lived on it.

I can remember a night so quiet you could hear the snowflakes falling.

I was never a big fan of having to shovel the white stuff, but I used to love being outside and hearing the flakes hit the snow that was already on the ground.
