Just moved here from Michigan. I get Summer felt it very well. Wat about Fall. When does the temp start to go down a little. What about the bugs outside do they die off as the weather gets colder? Not knowing much about this area is there apples farms and pumpkin farms around. Do people cut their own Christmas trees at Christmas. Fill me in as silly as my questions are it would be welcome.

depends where you are on the coast. fall is pretty mild. there are some cold days during the winter, just not snow. I would say that in november, you might need to use your heat during the night. the bugs go away during the winter for the most part. I don't think that there are apple and pumpkin farms here in wilmington, but I could be wrong. christmas trees will most likely be trucked here. there are a lot of pine trees, but they are of the long leaf variety, and that is mostly used for pulpwood to make paper.

it might be a bit cooler up there. a suggestion for you, if you can't find what you are looking for where you are, you might be able to find pumpkin and apple farms in VA. I absolutely love the area of VA you are near, well, if you go west a bit. the area of williamsburg is probably my favorite I have ever been to, and might have some more of the things you are looking for.

The state's coastal climate is wrong for apples and Christmas tree farming. The best areas for both are located in the Mountain Region of the state.

I live way down the coast between Camp Lejeune and Wilmington. As a native New Englander I feel that there is no real winter here. It's like a very long fall followed by a very long spring.

Could be worse. I just moved here (well, back here, I am from north of Raleigh) from Fort Lauderdale. After 7 years of 9 month summers followed by 3 months of spring, I am looking forward to a winter that is cool but not cold.

The part of winter I always hated in central NC is the ice storms and long stretches of freezing temperatures.
