That's like asking how can people stand the lack of lava.

I wouldn't mind a snow day or two a year...especially instead of an ice storm. It's nice to cozy up inside, light the fire, and pretend we have a winter every once in awhile!

And if you park outside, which we had to do since we lived in the city, there is a 99.9% chance you'll get plowed in as the trucks clean up the streets and then the snow buries your car.

We don't miss having to spend hours digging out our cars...or the real color of snow in the city...or driving at night not being able to see patches of black ice...or scraping the ice off our windshields every morning...or the stench in the air come April or May when all that ground that was previously frozen and covered with snow begins to thaw.

No thank you.

Possibly because there are more factors than climate alone involved in choosing a place to live? I might have a chance at Alaska in a couple of years, we'll see how it plays out.

I'm with you on the AC though...that's just wasteful.

If lack of snow is an issue, you should move north.

One thing we really cant change is climate (in our lifetimes anyway). Move north if you want snow. Its that simple.
