Up north you have to be prepared for winter for 6 months. Easier to deal with heat than cold.

No change in seasons, no change in wardrobe, no major weather changes, none of the winter hassle.

But, if that is what you enjoy please do so.

6 Months? It was almost 60F today in Connecticut. It flurried one day so far this year. It's not "winter" until there's snow and ice on the ground.

End of November to early March, so about 4 months is the entirety of the cold and about 2.5 months of snow and ice.

60 is cold for a high temp if you live in the southern half of FL.

too general of a question.....

Hartford, CT is a ghetto so obviously Palm Beach, FL would be a much better alternative!

Greenwich is extremely affluent, Hialeah, FL is not so CT would be a better choice!

See how this thread simply can't be answered?

Yup, 52 today in NYC. Perfection. I personally like colder, but that's coming soon.

Yeah, OK. Here I get ZERO days of snow and ice. Winter is coming. You will be in your glory days.

I'm not looking forward to temperatures of less than 50f here. Winter starts on December 21.

Oh man it's gonna be so lovely. I'll be able to go on my runs in 20-30 degrees. And bring on the snow!
