Outdoors
During my 55 years of life, I have traveled to 33 different states and have spent time either fishing or hunting in most of them, sometimes even doing both.

You know the type; when they start telling another tale, the others in your group roll their eyes and mumble "Oh no. here he goes again".

However, this type of stuff has been occuring every single year and the places hit with snow are unprepared, and die because they don't know how to survive.
