Moved from the Detroit area to the Raleigh area, now moving from the Ann Arbor area to the Charlotte area. I'm staying put this time. I'll only travel to Michigan to visit and vacation.

That's your opinion, which you have a right to, but it's one I'm not inclined in the slightest to agree with. Greenwich, CT and Sumter, SC, for example, are just noticeably different in many ways.
Killingly and Voluntown are noticeably different from Greenwich in many years as well.

I can see that even though the south as a whole is changing there still going to keep their southern traditions which are not a bad thing but it's something to think about when moving to a region that's mostly conservative, very religious, eat fried foods, and known for being extremely polite. I know plenty of northeasterners who feel more comfortable with people in the midwest than southerners despite sharing the Atlantic seaboard with a good chunk of the south. Florida does break the southern mold (hence why the retirement population is so high), very cosmopolitan, and it's very touristy to where people from other states and countries visit there, but it's pretty hot down there and the humidity is among the highest in the country. Midwest gets shares a lot of the same stigma the south gets by the coastal states as being too boring, too homogenous, conservative, and rural. One big difference between the South and the Midwest is weather. The midwest experience some of the worst winters in the US while the south experiences the worst summers.

It is basically summer all the time down here in South Texas. The average high in January is 71 and the average low is 50. So about 80% of the time, the high temperatures are between 65 to 85 degrees. However, we do get cold snaps with high temperatures in the 40s sometimes. In the winter, we go from hot to warm to cool and back again unpredictably. So in the winter it still feels like summer or late spring with some occasional cold snaps.

Where in South Texas? The cities in South Texas I'm thinking of (Houston, Austin, San Antonio) get blazing in the summer.

Again, I'm positive he lives in McAllen; which is in the Rio Grande Valley right on the Mexican border.

It's the only part of Texas that has 71/50 average high/low in January
