Here in the US Northeast, we are not strangers to snow. About another 5" or so fell yesterday and we were out bright and early today like nothing happened. Over all, I'd prefer to not have snow. But at least in RL it is done right. As you can see in the following picture of a place I will not identify, most landscapers in SL do not do snow right.
If you are willing to lay down ice, change the region texture to snow, and put out some snowmen, pick up the swimming swans, let the grasses die, and put in some bare deciduous trees. Don't do half measures. Go all the way.
/me gets off her soap box.
