Been here for 33 yrs. I would definitely return home to NYC, but competition for jobs is fierce in the legal field. Would also move to Toronto, but would need a sponsor for work. Considered moving to Buffalo last year, but wasn't happy with the job offer, so I stayed here.

As long as I can avoid I-25 and I-70 during peak times, I'm pretty happy. Have a seculded place in the foothills, but within 45 minutes of Larimer Square, so it's not bad. Would like to see some hockey teams along the lines of QMJHL, OHL, and the WHL in the area, but I have to settle for the Original 6 and Canadian teams that stop in to play the losers at the Pepsi Center.

where to begin {sigh} ....

- firstly every reputable scientist in the world believes in the figures that overall temps worldwide have been the highest in many decades - and are climbing

- NewsMax is not a reputable news site. It is the National Enquirer of news. It makes Readers Digest look like a PhD thesis.It is where press releases go to when they decide to give up and die. It is read and quoted only by those who know no better.

- John L. Casey, the scam artist quoted in the article, is not a climatologist. He studies math and physics as an undergrad and his Masters degree is actually in management . That is not a climatologist even though he plays on on the Web and has a web site (doesn't everybody?) that attempts to get you to to give him money to further his "research"

2013 was the 3rd warmest year on record. All of the top 10 have been since 1998 forward.

The map basically shows it was really cold in the Northestern US and parts of Europe last year. Everywhere else was average to warmer than normal.

And I trust NOAA way more than Ben Casey or anything that filthy propaganda rag Newsmax has to say about anything.

So I moved to Colorado four years and about one week ago.
I've given up on trying to figure out how it all panned out.
My dad used to do his army physician training at Fort Drum. That place is the north pole, it never stops snowing up that way its ridiculous and its so long at night in upstate NY. Small world.. thats nuts.

I've been here 7 years. So Cal native.

I still get excited about the snow, but am kind of just neutral about the extreme cold. I kind of just motor on through it, scraping/brushing the cars, driving/etc, none of it bothers me at all.

Last week when it was cold and snowed, it seemed to drag on longer than usual, and I could see how that could be trying for some people. The thing I hate about it is how short the days are. I'm not so sure I'd want it like that for weeks/months on end. I am PO'ed that my snow is just about gone, however.

Every time I think about another place I have to pinch myself and remember that basically everything I could ever want is right here. That just about everywhere else would be a downgrade for one reason or another.

I grew up in NYC and Buffalo. Came up here from Texas, 36 years ago. Had much snow growing up and if that was not enough I had a job that took me to the Antarctic.

I like cold and snow but not as much as Buffalo. Cold is good because it helps to control insect populations where in the south, they continue to thrive all year. It also prevents many people from squatting in unheated abandoned buildings and on the street.

It is also nice to get away from outside yard work and just snuggle indoors for a few months. The world because much quieter as people slow down and stay indoors. It gives me the isolation that I sometimes prefer. Ah, I am speaking for myself but if my aching arthritic joints ruled--they would demand a warmer climate.

Severe cold is hard but it has one advantage, it cannot snow a great deal when it is way below freezing. Cold air cannot hold moisture as much as warmer air. I know this to be true as in the Antarctic there are places that are normally 50 plus degrees below zero and it rarely snows and some areas have not snowed for millions of years. However, there is wind blowing over the thick ice had all those many years to accumulate.

That is the problem when we start talking about the warming environment which may mean more snow. As in the case in Buffalo today, the cold air flowed too early over the still warm lake and picked up moisture. If the lakes start maintain higher temperatures much longer through the winter, then there will be much more of the blizzards we are now seeing.

I like the cold, and the snow it depends...more than 4 inches it messes everything up, less than an inch it becomes ice too easily.

As for you OP, Arizona (Phoenix metro or Tucson) or Gulf Coast of Texas?
