Thank you for the contact and website information. I will see if I can get a hold of him. The website looks great!

One of our options is to get a small place to use as a get-away. How do you find the winter temps? I know further south would be better for that, but we like that we can get to Jax in 4 hours. We don't want to go much further than that.

Don’t want to go further into FL due to hurricanes but would moving 4 hours south (Ponte Vedra) make much of a difference in lifestyle (and winter weather). Or should we just be thankful we live in Charleston like everyone else who seems to be moving here?!

No large shopping malls??? Yes, thére is...what do you want Charleston doesn't have??

No Mayo Clinic??? MUSC is nothing to sniff at...!

Maybe you need to move to Atlanta.,

Atlanta? No way!!

Not sure when you have been to Charleston last but we don’t have the major retailers that Jax has.
(Take a look at Northwoods Mall)
MUSC is a fine hospital. But in most departments, it can’t compare to Mayo.

Just used shopping and Mayo as examples. No reason in themselves to move. We are now in retirement and exploring options. And the best option could very well be here in Charleston.

Hope you are enjoying where you are!

Winter in Jax is approximately 3-4 weeks total of fairly uncomfortable weather, but not intolerable. You'd probably be fine most of the time, but every once in awhile you might plan a "getaway" and then the week in Jax ends up being the same temp as Charleston. But over time the averages should make it worthwhile.

I agree with that! Our weather is fairly close, very often within 5 degrees. It's those days when we really dip down that we wish we would have moved a bit further South! (Although it is already pollen season here in Charleston. My husband has been sneezing all week!)
