If I lived in these areas, I would hate winter as well.
What about north of Chicago? The cold made me HURT...it got so cold. At least in warm weather, I could get outside and move around. And it got just as hot up there in the summer as it ever did down here. There was a day that school was cancelled because it was too HOT (and the water wasn't working either, but still...).

Nothing is better than the springtime coming in NY. The winters are getting milder, so they aren't even that bad anymore (It snowed only about 3 times, and it was just dustings basically). Nothing better than seeing the trees start to bloom, seeing the grass start to get green (instead of that pointy, hard grass in FL), and the smell of all the different flowers. The vibe is amazing. No year-round weather can take away the spring up north.

This is a matter of personal choices. What I like some else dislikes, so my way of making the best of any place is to enjoy what the area has to offer. You can criticize anything humidity, rain, snow, hurricanes, but we don't have control.

So regarless of your location find something good about your location and make the best. If you can't move out, become an insider and live your location to the fullest.

Remember I enjoyed North Dakota (30 days below -30), I enjoyed Iceland (hurricane force winds everyday), I enjoyed Saudi Arabia (125+ degrees in a runway), Panama (rain everyday), NYC (humidity, heat, and cold winters), Ogden Ut (lots of snow/rain, hot humid summers) and I enjoy Florida everyday regarless of hurricanes, humidity, rain, lighting, redtide, maniac traffic, busy malls, etc...


Again I'll take summers in Florida before winter up north...

Winters up North are worse. Just my opinion though. I know some who love the cold blustery days, but not me. I'm getting too old to handle the cold.

Here in Florida you deal with heat and humidity. In New England freezing cold and snow in the winter. They even out. I just love the landscape up north a lot more.

I wonder how much of it is an age thing honestly.... People haven't been retiring to Florida for generations just out of coincidence, right??
