I have and I made the move. My current town is so different from my hometown it's amazing. In fact, I'm currently back in my hometown visiting family for Christmas, and it's blowing my mind how different the place is, and how much I had forgotten the differences. And man, I can't wait to get back to Bellingham. I remember why I left this place!

I've lived in all the climates above except the arctic. I worked a few summers in SE Alaska and for the most part it would be in the 50's and damp/rainy most days. I've always wondered what it would be like to live somewhere like Fairbanks, Ak or Bismarck, Nd where you get long winters and short summers. I had a boss in Ak who was from Fairbanks and he told me his favorite thing was to be inside on crazy cold nights b/c it gave him a feeling of contentment in that he could relax and not have to do anything. I lived in a somewhat tropical climate in Florida. I liked it but during the summer the constant thunderstorms got kind of old. I lived in Portland, Or for a few years and it was a beautiful place but the grey blanket that was present nine months of the year got to me after awhile. I now live in southern Nevada and I love the mountains and constant sunshine. One of the many things I learned from living a lot of places is that there are good and bad things everywhere and that there is no perfect place. You have to find the place that makes you as an individual the happiest. Some people like warm weather, some like cold weather, some like the beach, some like the mountains, some like the desert, some like a mix of everything, some like cities, some like small towns. Everyone is wired how they are wired so find what you like and go for it. We have a blessing here in the US that we have a choice in our climates/geography to live in. Take advantage of it.

Oh it's well worth it to get to visit family and friends. But the key word there is "visit". I can't imagine ever having to live here again. The town is Murfreesboro, TN.

That part of TN is very conservative and Bellington is not. I know what you mean.
