It really sucks not getting to enjoy four distinct seasons. I'm sure at least some of you can share my pain.

Jeez, where do you live? Toronto?

If it were climatalogically/geographically healthy for my location, then I could live contently with an 85 degree average temperature for 365 days a year.

July and August...please get here.

Well, we don't really have summer, but I grew up in Texas and lived in Florida for five years so I've had about as much of that season as I'll ever want. I figure half a year of winter and half a year of not winter is pretty ideal for me at this point in my life. It was pretty lame growing up without any snow. There's so much fun stuff that I'm just now learning to do. Wish I'd learned to snowboard when I was a kid; I'd be awesome at it by now.

You're really young, so if you want to move North, then do it. I waited until I was 30 and wish I'd done it sooner and not let myself get tied down.

Miami has three seasons: Rainy, mosquito, and tourist. Is that close enough?

Very few of the places I've lived have had all four seasons.
Texas was 'Summer' and 'Blast Furnance'
New Mexico was Summer and Winter
Connecticut had all four
Florida had summer swampy and cool swampy
Washington has nice summer and then the 9 month rain season
South Carolina was summer, fall and spring but no winter.

As a refugee from the North you get tired of blizzards and shoveling snow. I don't miss it.

Like I said in the other thread, it DOES get pretty cold in Texas.

Summer here is like fall in some places. Cooler than fall in a lot of places. And that's A-OK with me.

There are 4 seasons where I live and I wouldn't have problem skipping the really cold winter weather.

Some folks simply don't remember it until they experience it themselves. You have those natives who know how cold it can get, yet they like to brag to outsiders about how Texas has "no winter", so then you have dozens of transplants in shock, because they didn't expect it to be damp and 34 degrees in Houston.
