Spending 6 months inside waiting for the weather to change warm so you can be outside....

My business puts me outside all day... I love the hot heat, nothing a straw hat cold beer and some good tunes can't handle...... Dam wish it was summer right now..
Instead 3" of snow coming tomorrow and i get to go scrap parking lots and throw salt..Loving it.

A typical snowstorm here is 3-4 inches. Overall I would say we have ten months of good weather out of the year and we get four distinct seasons. Give me that any day of the week over the cultural cesspool known as Florida. Yeah its nice to get to Naples for a week in the middle of January/Florida but you couldn't pay me enough money to live in that dump of a state.
I agree on the weather in Ohio. But I'm from Canada, so it's practically tropical here. The last two winters have been kind of brutal (this winter less so), but since I've been here in 2008, winters have been rather mild. I recall maybe one big, big snowstorm. The rest is a few inches, which I laugh at. I actually miss it.

I don't disagree with this. We may not be on the same page with respect to the definition of density in this particular case (and I don't care to split hairs). What I am referring to is when I go out to the lake house in Guernsey County there is no traffic to speak of. No mass transit either to relieve traffic pressures. There are simply fewer people. With all the development in Powell, Delaware County, Dublin, Westerville, Orange Township, and New Albany it is a cluster getting out of downtown no matter the route that you choose to take. Eliminate a few tens of thousands of households along the northern corridor and I bet traffic becomes more tolerable.
I live downtown and work in Delaware. Perfect for me, but the traffic in the opposite direction is nuts on the 315. Even worse when I was taking the 23. If Columbus is going to do light rail, it really needs to focus on Dublin, New Albany, and Polaris feeding into downtown.

I've lived in South Florida for many years, so I've heard the tale your telling numerous times and it always results in these northern people that make claims about loving the heat, spending most of their time in climate controlled environments complaining about the heat from April until November. I'm outside most of the year, so I notice these so-called heat lovers not being outside, you may claim that you're different, but your comments tell a different story.

I don't even find Florida to be a particularly hot place compared to other cities I've called home, but please realize your summer in Ohio is our December, January and February, at least in South Florida. You have a few hot days during the summer in Ohio that result in extreme heat warnings being issued, while everyday in Florida for months we experience these and warmer temperatures daily.

Not down South but out West. The weather here is almost perfect. It's been in the 70's with sunshine almost every day. I have no intentions of ever moving back to Columbus.

I got customers and friends in NE Ohio, Columbus & Midwest. Every conversation I have with them they end up mentioning how the weather sucks and how much the winter just drags on. IMO that is not paradise living 30%+ of time in that weather climate.
fortunately was able to spend glorious time in Miam Beach last week and heading to Marco Island Saturday..

There are dozens of things that are objectively far more important for living in a place than the weather. I will never understand the people who make that their priority. I hate the heat/humidity of the South, but that wouldn't be the reason that prevents me from living there again. There are plenty of other negatives from cultural and economic standpoints that would make that decision pretty easy.

And honestly, most people agree because most don't move because of the weather.

Neither is being miserably hot for at least 30% of the time. I don't get the attraction of sunburns and sweat.

Personally, I preter a tougher people. I can't see how people who are too physically and mentally weak to handle the weather leaving the state can be anything but a boon for the genepool.

Historically, these peope did not have the wherewithal to move to a gentler climate so they just withered and died. I am sure they took some of the heartier stock down with their piercing wails and whines, as well.

So it's a good thing to hear about people wanting to move South.

So Northerners are tough because they can tolerate the snow and rough winters but Southerners are wimps because they can only tolerate the intense humidity and sweating and sunburns? Northerners laugh at the South when they panic at a couple inches of snow but Southerners laugh at Northerners when they complain of 88 degree heat waves.

We shovel a lot of snow (tons) each year in cleveland. The snow piles can get pretty tall along the driveways.. Something people in the south have never done.
