I know people who have but not me. I went up north for college and hated it. Not the college, just the weather. I don't see any reason to go back.

I moved from Florida to Alaska. I suppose that counts. I moved here because I wanted to live in a much cooler climate with fewer people and awesome scenery and wildlife. I don't think I'll ever move back to the Lower-48, but if I did it sure wouldn't be anywhere south of Oregon.

Same story for me, then I took my education and ran toward a warmer clime.

Never again will I live north of the states that are adjacent to Mexico or the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic coast up to North Carolina.

I was raised in Louisiana and Alabama. I moved north to Virginia, then DC, then back to Virginia (obviously I know Virginia/DC isn't the North, but it is much colder in Virginia than the parts of Louisiana and Virginia I lived in).

Overall I find it a mixed bag with pros and cons. I like the layout of the cities better up here...DC is great and I have also gotten to spend time in NYC and Philly. But I have to say I prefer the warmer climate and ample sunshine of my childhood. I can do Virginia, but anything further north/colder would be a deal breaker for me.

This thread begs the question: Are people in warm climates simply less tolerant overall of hardship and change? I myself have moved from Ohio to Mexico to Ohio back to Mexico again. I love Ohio's weather, the 4 distinct seasons. I liked the heat of summer and the cold, snowy days of winter. In Mexico City, it's just warm all year long, with very little variation. If I have any complaints, it's that the weather here is far too boring. And in general, I think people from colder climates simply appreciate their nice weather far more. People here put on scarves and coats when it's below 65 degrees.

If so, where did you move from/to and......why?
I moved from Houston to Dallas suburb of Plano. Moved for family reasons and like the climate here better. Its not too cold but definately 4 seasons.

Lived my entire life in the Nashville area and moved here to Western Washington. However, calling this a "colder" climate sounds funny to me. Spring, summer, and part of fall are certainly cooler, but winter actually feels milder. Still, I'm sure the overall yearly average temperature is less, the weather's just not as extreme here. And yes, I like it. Even if I left Bellingham, there's no way I'd voluntarily move back to Tennessee or anywhere else that gets that hot in the summer.

Personally, I find the weather up here easier to deal with than the extreme heat, lightning, hail, tornadoes, hurricanes, and torrential rainstorms down south.

Same here, minus hurricanes (although our weather in TN was often affected by hurricanes).
