On the Culture of Snow
Matt and I pondered the cultural causes of snow-aversion on the Matt Allen Show, last night. Is it related to global warming (or lack thereof)? Is it related to the Internet and video games? Stream by clicking here, or download it.
I actually think it’s a softening of our regional character. We once braved the weather, in the Northeast. We dealt with it. We put the chains on the tires and felt as if we’re ready. Now, people have become enamored of the opportunity to run and hide. I suppose, therefore, it’s less a matter of diminished bravery against the snow as it is diminished fortitude against the daily grind of life.
