Weather was not a main factor when we chose to move to Wyoming, our priority was getting out of California and hubby getting a good job up north somewhere.

However now that we have moved away from central CA we are so much happier living in a four season location, with summer heat that barely goes above eighty. Gone are the heat waves of 100+ days all summer long. Gone is the bad air quality.

I definitely think weather will be a bigger determining factor if/when we choose to move again as we'll be much older and the snow and ice may be hard to navigate safely, both in our vehicles and on foot. I'd rather opt to snowbird away somewhere warmer for the winter months if possible, but then it wouldn't feel like Christmas without the snow. Hmmm.

Unquestionably. I left DC metro for Cali in part due to weather. When I had to find another job, I chose Miami in no small part due to the weather.

We moved for better schools and healthcare. But the fact that our current location has some fluctuations in weather is a huge side benefit for me. I lived in Albuquerque for 40 years and constant sunny skies except for the brief monsoon season really did a number on me. Glad to live in a place with more weather variety even if it means spring snow!
