As for the topic of this thread.....I HATE FRIGGIN WINTER AND LAKE EFFECT SNOW!
I get my daughter out of high school (3.5 more years) and I am gonna try like hell to get back down south......middle/east Tennessee is the goal. Meanwhile, my car usually goes into hibernation by mid November then comes out in mid April.
I tried living down South back in the early 80's, Fla. HATED it and the South, (Nothing Against Southerners) Sure I like the Heat, but comon most people there are INSIDE all day with the AC on and only come out in the evening when it cools off a little, everywhere you go it's AC! what kind of life is that, I like to enjoy the Outdoors, not the inside of My House all the frigin time!
And I like to feel the Breeze in My Stang with the Windows down here Up North, Not a Heat Wave of Blazin Heat comming in the Windows, so you have to drive with the windows up and the AC on.
I have No Regrets living in the Worst Part of the Country For Lake Effect Snow. We get a Nice Spring when everything starts to grow, nice Summers with average temps in the 70's to 80's, a Great Fall and Winter. When we get sick of the Heat Winter Comes, when we get sick of Winter Summer Comes so we get a break from each of them. But to live in the Heat all the time, you can have it. Sure I Love the Summer and Heat here, but it does go away, thank God as I could'nt Imagine a Winter and Hunting Season with No Snow, or what's Christmas (sorry if I offended any Muslims) without snow, you need SNOW for Christmas!
The South is a Nice Place to Visit but you can have the 365 Days of Heat!
