My dear, only the Big City (which admittedly has less than 300,000 people) gets plowed, and even that not fully. Most of us use snow machines or snowshoe or something when it really starts to snow....

Which is, of course, why this is in the Shire thread...;)

But yeah. It's only five thirty and already it's been pitch black for an hour. It gets so depressing, and winter's not even half over yet....
