West Virginia might be considered.

Look into Huntington or Charleston. Both are cities of about 50, 000 with wonderful weather nestled in the picturesque Appalachian Mountains.

It's very inexpensive too.

I live in Kansas.. The average temp in winter is about 32 degrees. But summer average is like 85 - 90. Average snowfall is 21inchs. But it also depends on the side of the state. Northwest gets more snow, south east gets more rain. Southwest is dry, central is kind of humid. South and north central and eastern are wonderful!! Kansas is right smack in the middle of Tornado alley and the bible belt. You have to have a house with a basement here. And, for most of the bottom 48 states, it's not as populated. The biggest city, Wichita, has 350,000, and the worst drivers in the country.

Like previously said, I also haven't met anyone who hates Colorado. There is so much variety in Colorado that it will blow you away. You can live on the prairie, desert, mountains, forest, next to a lake.... YOU NAME IT!

The Front Range Cities (Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins) are great places to live and they are all very clean and full of friendly people. I've never encountered a rude person in Colorado and I've never felt awkward asking a stranger a question. Everyone's pretty laid back. The Front Range Cities get snow, but it tends to melt in a day or two because temperatures stay relatively high in the winter.

The Rockies get TONS of snow and there are multiple ski resorts and snowmobile trails. Lakes are great in the summer and the camping is endless. Southern Colorado is desert-like and the Colorado River offers kayaking and fishing.

I can't even list all of the positive attributes of Colorado. It's just an amazing state!
