first the guy is complaining and maine has had open skiing earlier than anyone this year.
Second he is complaining about something he can not control IE the weather.
third he could easily changed where he lived or could have at one point in time. if he still choose maine other factors other than the skiing made his choice. I also never said there was no industry in maine.
First he wasn't really complaining so much as making an observational thread about the lack of snowfall.
Second, I reckon if he could control it, then he'd have no reason to "complain" about it. You've never complained about weather, traffic, illness or something else you had no control over? Don't answer, I'm certain you have.
Third why does it seem your default is "Well, you should have moved." A. It's not always that easy to up and move. B. Not everyone (even in this forum) sees fit to move based solely on snow/skiing. C. Why would anyone in their right mind move based on a couple weeks of bad skiing conditions? That point goes back to my original point: Maine is a good place to live if you value skiing and snow sports, so why is moving even relevant to bring up.
Fourth, you might want to develop a new boilerplate response. The "should have moved" one is losing mileage. Especially if you insist on injecting it into lighthearted threads that really aren't meant to be full-blown bitch fests.
