I think you nailed kenshi on that!

Not everyone who lives in Texas moved here plus climate isn't everything.

I was assuming the state would come along with the city. Plus I seem to have underestimated the distance. I was thinking more inside Kansas.

Then DFW area is not for you. Sorry-

What city-data has taught me:

The DFW area is so great that all we have to do is argue about the weather and whether we prefer the city or the 'burbs.

I love snow!

Good or bad, I'll be moving to Western New York after I'm done with college here... and they get up to 100 inches of snow a year there. Shock for sure.

If you are not used to the snow - yes a shock you will get. Snow doesn't just dissapear the next day - especially where you get plenty of snow. It just gets a wonderful black and yellow mound or yuck to look at until April. Oh - and have fun walking around...glad I'm heading on down south!

Snow is overrated and only fun if you're ten and get the day off school when it comes. (in my humble opinion) Spoken from someone who lives at 7200 ft. and has to shovel my driveway every time it snows.

Not being a child or a winter sports person, I HATE snow, this winter has been great in my area(NE Ohio), since this winter has been far from common, those that like snow have been disappointed.

I don't mind the cold much, it is easy to deal with, but snow means NOTHING but work to me.

You never get "used" to the cold and snow, you only learn to deal with it in one way or another.

You could always move back where you came from if you don't like the weather.
