Move to Montreal....that should settle it, one of my favorite cities.

Ya know Montreal would be a good place to live but I honestly mean this ...winters are too cold. Interior CT where I will be headed back to is ideal.. Winter is cold bit not overly cold with enough snow to keep me happy ...spring sucks..summers while warm are nice..falls are beautiful.

To set the record straight..I love Seasons...I love heat in summer , I love cold and snow in winter. Anyplace that has too much of something wont work for me. Here is just to warm for too long.

Coincidence?

You cannot "catch" a cold or flu from cold weather...its just not possible.

They don't necessarily, but here are some reasons why you may think that:

Higher UV in summer sunlight kills more germs, and cold and flu virus.

People are more often inside with virus laden recycled air, and closer to other people more often.

Natural immunity drops due to less exercise in cold weather.

Some colds and flus are misdiagnosed.

Maybe this helps:

they do. And, one thing that I have (recently) discovered, a lot of it has to do with the lower humidity and the colder temps..yes, that's right. If the humidity in your house stays at the 50% range and your temps are at least in the 65-degree-range, your chances of getting sick are far less. In fact, the humidity alone will prevent colds & flu! Another reason that I keep the humidifier going 24/7 all winter...and, yes, it does work.
