Don’t really care about the current state of affairs in MSP. If anything, it’s temporary, and will be back to normal soon.

Anyway, that’s a discussion for another topic.

After living in Miami Dade for 43 years, I moved back home to Lafayette, Indiana. It is a great community with a large middle class, lots of decent paying jobs, relatively low COL, a major university (Purdue) and friendly, welcoming people. Oh, good drivers, too. The long winters kind of suck, but the rest of the year is great. Life here is so much easier for me. Real community spirit, clean, safe, easy to travel if I want to.....Indianapolis is 60 miles away, Chicago is 110 miles away, great farmers' market (since 1839), beautifully restored architecture..... I can go on and on.

I could see myself living in northern New Mexico.

As far as the East goes, I like Cincinnati and Pittsburgh and would not be devastated if I had to move to either.

Vermont is also great.

I'd be a happy Man in Portland, Maine...Right close by the water in Casco Bay...Eating Lobsters ALL the time.

Lovely Port and the cold weather there is doable, not like inland a couple o' hrs N or West from the Bay.

Back to Cleveland, OH, or hypothetically, if picking a new city, Philadelphia.

Honestly, I know this sounds bad, and I personally don't mind the cold at all and perhaps even prefer it. But, I know my wife is extremely sensitive to cold weather. So, I would probably pick Atlanta.. because it's cold season isn't as long or intense, and the mountains are close at hand. I don't know that Atlanta counts as having a "real cold season", but I can tell you that for my last winter visit there, for UCF's appearance in the Chick Fil A Peach Bowl on Jan, 1st 2018 (National Champs, woo!), it was like 15-20 degrees.

42 years in collier county we moved to western NC mountains as we just HAD to finally move away from florida heat and high humidity that for a hands on home builder not easy to deal with at some point .

Here in WNC you can find areas that give you some areas at higher elevations on closer to high er mountains and state border depending that can be more snowy and cold for most of a few months or winter down as low as 0 to -5 in the AM 's with nice afternoons to lows in the Teens with lite snow to just a good dusting but best of all high's in the summer of only the upper 80's . Last couple mornings and the next few we had or will have lows in the low 50* with a high of low 70* . Nice for early summer .

The first ten years here we live on a ridge top near Mt Michell and a 5* below zero and a foot of snow was not uncommon in jan or feb months but the last 12 years have been in a valley here and snow is less common and lite and temps tend to be milder . We live in Yancey County NC near enough to Asheville larger for city needs but they are rare as most needs can be filled local .
