I admit though, that snow may be a drag after a long winter, but I am sure that brushfires and dust can be pretty unpleasant, not to mention hazardous. Once last summer we there were forest fires in the north, and the wind brought the smoke into the city. It was so eerie. It happened again in september, only then the fires were closer and the air quality was worse. I rode my mountain bike to an appointment and 15 minutes in that air made me cough and my chest hurt.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
