Instead of one extreme to another, why not move halfway to TN or the Carolina's? I just cant understand how picking one extreme (NY winters) over another extreme (FL summers) solves anything. Why not have 4 mild seasons and not have to deal with it?

I don't have NY experience, but I do have Vermont and Ohio winter experience and Florida wins hands down! I find that if you don't keep the a/c too cold, it's easier to adapt to the weather down here. I've never been a hot weather person, but I've adapted just fine. In fact, Florida hot doesn't seem as uncomfortable as Ohio hot and certainly not as unbearable as DC hot.

Winter in New York only lasts for 3 months??? As if. It's freezing cold from November to April, and Mays are rainy and cold as well. Lived in New York for 17 years.
exactly my thoughts

Especially the sandals with the socks.

You are kidding right? It doesn't get 70 until way into May most of the years, and it's no longer 70 in November. Maybe in your home.
Sometimes New York gets warm fronts in the middle of April, it only lasts for couple of days and it doesn't happen every year. Lately, New York has even seen snow in April.

I moved from NY to Florida when I retired. I tried it for two years, but the heat and humidity were too much for me. I'm back where it's cold, but I'm not complaining about it anymore.
I appreciate Spring and Fall in New York even more so.

although a size 1. I didn't wear shorts in Florida even when I was 22 either. I certainly wouldn't NOW. I wear either capris or long pants. You can get lightweight long pants, you know.

It's the 300 lb people who are 50+ who should look in a mirror.

it's people who think anything BELOW 70 is WINTER. I never said it was 70 in November, but I don't think 40s or 50s, which it mostly IS in November, is cold. This past Thanksgiving it was in the 50s on Long Island. I was there. Actually, I was laughing while cooking the turkey thinking it went to 82 in Naples then.

Yes, I am. And if I had legs that looked like a topographical map of the Western United States and had gnarly, yellow toe nails, I wouldn't wear shorts and sandals.

Couldn't agree more.
