Lived in places with two seasons.....wet and dry.

Lived in places with four seasons.......

the best thing about four seasons is that your activities change with the seasons. Even winter with fly tying, pickleball, and other indoor activities is a nice break from fishing, hunting, hiking. I enjoy skiing in winter, but really not a attraction other than being outdoors in winter.

It's sort of the neighborly thing to do, to lament about the extremes of your current climate, insinuating greener pastures.
I don't know. I think think it's fairly accurate to say that people generally have a bias toward warm over cold. Yes, people who live in cold climates typically complain about the cold and people who live in warm climates complain about the heat. But I rarely see/hear far more people in warm/hot climates talk about how they're itching to move to a cold one. I do see plenty of people up north looking to move to colder ones.

When I had only lived in the Northeast, I thought it would be great to live somewhere warm all year long.

It took actually moving there before I realized how much I missed the different seasons. I eventually moved back to the Northeast.

Even your diet changes

I know of some Texans that left because of the heat.

If I could get summer year round, I definitely would. I like listening to birds, spring peepers and crickets. I like the sound of kids playing outside and lawnmowers, watching the fire flies and bats at night and the smell of someone grilling outside and fresh cut grass.

Then winter rolls around, and everything is silent, dead and ugly. The roads turn white, the snow banks turn brown, your car is covered in dried salt, your windows are iced over in the morning.

And no I would never get bored because the weather is always warm. I may occasionally make a trip up to the mountains to see some snow, but after a few days of that, I'd be all set.

I'm starting to get tired of this heatwave. Fall will be much welcome.

Great thread, but I can't remember if I ever responded to it, lol. It's pretty old. If seasons are overrated or not, I guess depends on the person. I personally love 4-seasons. I love each one for various reasons. I live in the Charlotte area. In the Summer, there are lots of outdoor activities. It can get pretty hot/humid (as do many areas in the country in the Summer), but it really doesn't bother me at all. It doesn't stop most people from getting out and about. I was at Carolina Harbor Waterpark last week during this heat wave and it felt great. Trips to the beach and mountains are fun........Winters can occasionally get cold, but are very tolerable. We get snow each Winter, but it's gone within a few days and isn't around long enough to get tired of it. I love snow, but not huge amounts. The Christmas season "feels" like Christmas, with that crispness in the air........ Springs and Falls are long, enjoyable, and just glorious. Very comfortable and bright sunshine. Each season has its own clothing, activities, and offers variety. Though I can understand why someone would like one or two season climates, I prefer getting to experience all four seasons each year.

I really like the Charlotte area.

No place is perfect in my opinion, but I do like the midAtlantic region of our country - I think the weather is generally great there.

Here - I love the mild winters and gorgeous springs, but every summer I hit this brick wall - I am sick of the heat already and it's just the latter portion of July. Thank goodness that in a few days a "cold front" is due to come in and daytime highs are supposed to drop into the 80s, with nighttime lows in the 60s. That's a nice little break for those of us in NE Texas!
