You waited until you were 27 to do something you should have done when you were 6?
I grew up in Florida, where it was practically headline news if it got below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. And for some people, a snowy day is an excuse to revert to childhood and enjoy playing in the snow, so maybe that's what OP was doing. OP's brother sounds like a bully. This can't be the first time Big Bro has done something mean just to mess with him.
I only saw snow for the first time last year, when I was 21. I live in South Africa; we had to drive over two hours to get to a snowy spot in the mountains. The snow was only ankle deep and had started melting since it was a sunny day but I built a teeny tiny snowman to celebrate :) I wish it was snowing now, today was 48 degrees Celsius (about 118 F).
Ten thumbs up. I have to walk in that shit for work every time it snows. My sister loves snow, I get tempted to hit her every time she gets excited about it. I guess it's the whole wanting what you don't have thing, some people probably wish they could experience it just as much as I wish I'd never see it again...
I feel like it's necessary to know the gender of OP to truly assess this situation
Those things are a lot of work. Personally I would be distraught if that happened to me.
I live in Kent, too (well only for my studies), and was amazed at the amount of snow that fell, since I heard it's not very usual in England. I know the feeling, we did a beautiful snowman the other day with my roommates and not even 2 hours after that it was destroyed :(
