me and my wife will be travelling looking around in a few weeks and have a few key needs or wants, however you want to put it. we first thought colorado or south dakota would be good, but the more i look the more confused i get. we want a place that has all 4 seasons, lots of cloudy overcast days and or rain, but also sun. a blizzard or two would be nice each year. along with mountains and lots of greenery. now this is where im getting confused, because it seems all the mountainous areas by nature get way too much sun for us. we like weather to change, otherwise its just too boring. also, we have money saved for the move but other than that we are broke newlyweds lol so the cost of living needs to be something manageable. does anyone have any ideas? thanks guys

Try mountainous areas of Upstate NY, PA, VA, WV and maybe Western MA. Cost of living will be around the national average, if not just below it.

Perhaps places like Plattsburgh, Oneonta and Glens Falls in NY; Scranton, Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown and Wilkes-Barre in PA; Morgantown, Fairmont and Martinsburg in WV; Winchester, Harrisonburg, Staunton, Blacksburg and Roanoke in VA and Pittsford, North Adams and Adams in MA may work for you two.

I live in the Black Hills, and while we definitely get all 4 seasons, it is quite sunny. Normally there aren't very many cloudy, overcast, rainy days. We did last spring, but I was new in town and a my coworkers told me that was out of the ordinary.

You might add Charleston, WV to the mix as well

ok cool, thanks everyone, while i do want to start looking out west in the black hills/rocky mountains area since we are closer to it, it sounds like towards the east is the best bet
