Definitely the wrong type of snow!

(British Rail claimed in 1991 that service disruption was due to 'the wrong type of snow' and were widely ridiculed for the claim, though they did have a point. See here for more details)
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

In California we also have “the wrong type of snow”  :P

Ours is wetter, heavier and ices up quickly (more like concrete)

We prefer the dry, light and fluffy type found in Colorado
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

It's said that rail companies have over two hundred words for snow  ;D

And not always polite ones.
