I wonder why you dont plan on relocating to a warmer climate. Once I save enough money I am moving to a temperate four season climate in the northeast states

Who me?

I can't "plan" to move to a warmer climate because I can't plan to be legally allowed to work somewhere warm, or plan to retire somewhere warm any time soon. I've been hoping to live somewhere warm since I was a kid.

Even our warmest climate in Canada still does not have April's averaging at 60 F or more. Where I live is 52 F in April, so pretty much in my country there isn't a whole lot of difference for warmer places.

Seriously though, I will not let myself think about moving somewhere warm until I feel somewhat comfortably financially. I'm doing this by saving money, trying to increase my job skills/qualifications and by avoiding ideas of dating or starting my own family like the plague.

You said yourself, you need to save enough money before you're willing to move to a four-season climate.

*NAH I apologise if it sounds like a rant. I appreciate the question and figured it was asked out of consideration for me. (or whoever you addressed it to)

Then I wish you luck saving enough to make the relocation to the US, youll probably like Texas and its hot summers, mild winters and very affordable housing. $100k there gets you a nice 1500 square feet house, $50k will get you a nice 2/2 condo or an old house needing minor TLC. How soon do you plan to move? I hope to leave FL(unless house prices drop big time) within a year.

I HATE warm weather!!!!!!!! It was 80 here yesterday and I thought I would melt, I am NOT looking forward to summer! Most people on here know that about me. Maybe it would different if we had winter here, but we only get a few cool days then it's over
So I don't look forward to warmer weather

Still a balmy 40 below ambiant on the north central coast of Alaska today. Man I cannot wait for March. That's when we get most of our snow. Spring skiing is great.

Ahhhh... Not warm enough for snow.

I hope you get a lovely snowfall when spring warms things up.

That reminds me ILNC, I don't think you mentioned details about your recent trip to N.C., besides great weather.

Did you see or do anything new and exciting?
Try out a fantastic restaurant?
Make any new friends?

Now might be a great time to visit southern Ontario if you wanted to visit in winter. Were past our "deep freeze/Arctic Air" meaning all forecast highs are above 20 F, some getting above freezing, yet we have plenty of snow and plenty of cold to keep most of it around. That and the days are getting longer so there is more to see.

I'm actually planning on going downhill snow skiing this Saturday with a friend. Supposed to be nice; high of 26 F and mostly sunny. (It sure beats high of 16 F, or 6 F, LOL) I went downhill skiing the second day in my life a few weekends ago and found it quite fun; a great substitute for water skiing, in some ways more interesting, as long as you can keep warm enough that your skin doesn't sting.

I actually found some strategies on how to keep my fingers and toes warm. My toes I use chemical hot packs and shove them into the boots, under my toes. My fingers, I could use hot packs too, but plain very thick winter mitts work well in temps hovering just below freezing. I've also gained 13 lbs since last November so that's helping stabilize and insulate my "core."

Thanks, and likewise with your four-season dream home.
