You are from Seattle, Washington. Is it as cold here as there?

The weather is similar, but it doesn´t snow as much back home. As soon as we get around one inch of snow everything shuts down. Schools close and people dont go to work. Since I have been in Germany it has always snowed. At Sacred Heart, it snowed all the time and it was not my favorite.
