One Man's Wine Is Another Man's Poison

I'm looking out at snow covered paths and houses, thinking...'I hate this'.

To me snow looks good (it covers up the muck that is usually lying around), but it's cold, damp and a danger for traffic and people. To my kids it's an endless source of fun and means a day off school. For the dogs it's a pain in the bum...well they are little dogs and their backsides touch the stuff when they walk outside.

Different people will view the snow according to the circumstances. The executive who complains that it keeps his staff from going to work will complain if there's none on the slopes for his ski-ing holiday.

Today, I complain about the snow. On Christmas Day, I'll sigh and enjoy it.
