Maybe you're just on a run of bad luck. I grew up in Boston, moved to FL in 1999 and lived there for 17 years. Then moved back to Boston last year. Haven't had a cold in years. Although I'm certainly a germ o phobe.

Always wash your hands when returning home and whenever possible. Avoid touching handles like doors and hand bars on the subway whenever possible. Don't go touching door handles then rubbing your eyes. Instant recipe for sickness.

Everyone gets sick more often in the winter here. But I wouldn't be surprised if your immune system is a little less prepared for a New England winter if it's used to the Florida climate. I've also heard of the opposite happening: northerners going to Florida and finding it unbearably hot and humid while the natives find it okay.

But the body adapts over time.

I'm _from_ Florida and find it unbearably hot and humid...

It is OK to be sick in Boston, but not sick of Boston. That is a Boston Law
