Default -30 is better than -5

-30 is better than -5, if you dont like snow:

So at the start of the wintery season (end of October) it snowed a fair bit here and we had snow falling until around December. During which time the weather had slowly been dropping into the -20s. The colder it is, the less chance there is of snow and any snow just freezes into solid ice blocks. So during January when we were at about -30 there was nothing and during February it warmed up some again so we got the odd storm.
I got up this morning to -5 and thick snow fall. I wonder if it will stay long? I quite liked seeing grass again

It should be gone in a week or so if previous years are anything to go by, just didnt expect it this morning.

but, weirdly, +5 is better than + 30.

Any temperature which starts with a minus is bad

Only with a plus sign in front of the temperature number does temperature become good

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
