It's true that most of East Texas has undergone too much logging, but I'd put the Big Thicket/Deep East Texas up against any place further east, in terms of the sheer volume of forestation. In fact, the only part of the U.S. that I think of as being greener than ET is the Pacific Northwest.

I don't think so. After having lived in both extremes of New England winter and South Fla endless summer I can say without a doubt my husband and I prefer season change. The endless heat and humidity grinds on you just as much as it would if you had 10 months of brutal winter.

Yep. Difference is there's nowhere in the US that's habitated besides maybe northern Alaska that have 10 or even close 10 months of brutal cold weather. All major US cities experience warm summers but not all major US cities experience cold winters.

I can't even imagine dealing with a winter as long as Minnesota's, so those brutal parts of AK would be out of the question. You made quite the leap going from FL to where you are now.

Honestly the Twin Cities is as far north as I wanna go. Even St. Cloud is too much. Their average low in April is 32 for example where as ours is 37. Sure it's only 5 degrees but that makes the difference in terms of how soon the ground thaws out on average and how soon flowers and leaves return. I think the seasons here are great. It leans to the chilly side but that's fine with me!

Right now Iím low key kinda excited for this potentially big snowstorm coming in a few hours since I happen to be off work tomorrow. But ask me again on Saturday where the forecast says itís gonna be 1 degree F in my city and Iíll probably have a different answer by then.

Love it, but I do feel bad for the animals when it gets this cold.

My brother sent me a picture of his dash thermostat - NEGATIVE 19 degrees up in Ohio yesterday morning. No thank you!

Today is the "warmest" day so far in our cold snap - it's about 30 degrees right now and the sun is sparkling off the heavy frost. That's about how much cold I like in January!

Actually we were down in the teens for a few nights (with highs below freezing) for about four days and yeah - that was cold enough for me. I don't mind some cold weather in January. It's cold weather in March and April that I take issue with. Enough already!

Oh, and I don't want to have to bundle up inside my house either. I don't mind snuggling down with some big woolly socks on, under an afghan by the fire, but I don't want to have to walk around in thermal underwear or a jacket just to be comfortable in the house. Outside - yeah, I'm OK with layers. Inside, not so much.
