Looking at the weather forecast, Buffalo will be in the mid fifties next week...... for one day.

Followed by two weeks in the mid thirties.

How do you freeze your butt off if your cooped up in your house for 6 months? Don't you have any heat?

Well, lets see. Going to your job, going to store, running errands... that typical life stuff that you continue to do even with snow on the ground and temps below freezing. Unfortunately you do not get paid to stay inside at home for 6 months of winter.

I moved from Buffalo to Jacksonville actually. North Florida is really nice weather wise, you get a distinct cooler season (60-70 degree daytime temps for a few months) Summers really aren't that bad either, nothing like i was expecting. I think last summer there was only 2 or so days were it was so hot and humid i didn't want to step outside. Everyone makes it sound much worse then it is down here in summer. No your don't want to run 5 miles at 2 in the afternoon, but there are still plenty hours of the day where you can be outside very comfortably.

Just suck it up and push through, your almost through winter. I know the feeling of being tired of it by March, but on the plus side Buffalo has probably the best summer weather I have ever experienced. If you really hate it that much consider moving. Be cautioned though, moving solely b/c of weather is generally not very smart. I didn't think i would miss Buffalo at all but i do everyday. I miss the real city feel, the subway, the downtown nightlife and most importantly my family. Would i move back? Probably not unless i got a killer job, but as the years go on and my parents get older i may end up back up there simply to be with them.

People have lives in winter up north outside their homes... the point is its hot in the south in summer making it uncomfortable and cold in the north in winter...making it uncomfortable. Pick yer poison.

Beautiful day in north Ohio today. First time this year it was warm enough to open all the windows and air the house out.
Put up the screens and washed all the windows.

I've thought about Jacksonville because of the same things you mentioned. We've never been there though. We have always gone to Central Florida. I will have to look closer at that part of the state. I agree with you about not moving solely on the weather. But, it is a big part of the decision once I do it down the road. Our last two winters were miserable and long. As I get older, it gets harder to deal with it. Then spring comes very late each year. Summer is great but it is brief. But I do realize that each area has its positives and negatives. Just something each of us has to deal with.

For the record, the temps along the east coast within a mile or two of the beach (don't know about the Gulf coast) are usually drastically lower in the summer than a few miles inland. The daily sea breeze does wonders for air temps and humidity.
