Today, my dad took my car keys off my keychain and hid them from me. His reasoning was, "I don't want you to be driving during the winter." Guess who has to walk ten miles a day to work, through the New England snow. FML

I could never imagine having to walk... I live in one of the snowiest cities in America by population thanks to lovely lake effect snow, and even walking from my dorm building to class can be rough.

What does population have to do with with measuring which city has the most snow?
Besides doesn't more population make it less of a hardship than less populated or a more rural location? You would have the luxury of more services to combat dealing with it like more and better plowed roads and more public transit routes?
I'm guessing you live near the Great Lakes. They get some beautiful but wicked effects on the shorelines. I love seeing the photos every year. It's fascinating. Thankfully I only visit in the warmer months I don't think I could live there full time.
I may get a lot of black ice but rarely have to shovel or worry about roof damage and our heating bills are a lot lower.
For you guys up north layering isn't a fashion statement its survival!

Are you a new driver OP? If so I can understand why he would worry especially during winter conditions, however walking 10 miles in bad weather also sounds dangerous so I hope you can reason with him
