I personally LOVE hot weather. I love to see those 90's in the forecast on the rare occasions that we get them in June, July and August in Michigan.

However... friends and family will always trump weather for me. I can't quite get myself to move to a place just for weather or scenery that I like a little bit better. I was born here by chance, but I'm not moving because of the weather. Anyone else feel this way?

I'd certainly consider it, although I don't have any specific city or metropolis in mind. Something in the mountains might be nice.

I have seriously considered it. I wonder about things.. whether or not the long winters would be a major problem, if my southern accent (and degree from a southern school) would hold me back professionally, and whether or not I need to go up there, necessarily, for better access to cultural activities.

I can appreciate what the different places have to offer, but I guess there isn't any one certain place up north I am interested in. If I was going to leave the south in search of greener pastures, I'd just as soon consider Canada, Australia, or somewhere in Europe where I can continue to speak only English.

I like the rare days in the 90s too (I wish there were more of them). I don't understand why anyone complains about them. Even if they don't like them, they should just be happy they don't have to see much of them.

But I have to disagree on the moving issues. Weather trumps family with me. I was born in New England by chance and I certainly don't have to stay here. It doesn't matter how much family I have here; I don't want to live somewhere I hate just to be near them. I only have a few relatives that are even worth seeing anyway.

I think the HOT weather is the number one factor for staying in the south for me. I love having 3 to 5 months of 90's, and a good half month to month of 100+. I also like December, and January temperatures in the 70's, and 80's!!!

I live in the northwoods and anything above 85F is very hot to me

I wish I could move back to New England! I am tired of all of the upper 90's to 100 degree weather in GA. It gives me headaches, and unlike the cold, you can't ajust with layers to fit your comfort level. You either go inside all day or sweat like crazy and get headaches!

I get those migraines here too, they're no joke. My blood has been thickened from living in those TN mountains for six years so I'm thinking of doing another move (that's just one reason though) but family and wanting to see my city reach another level is keeping me here for a little while. Do you plan on moving back to your home state?

I love 90 degree days. Fortunately, there are plenty of them around here. Like a previous poster, I also love 70 and 80 degrees in December and January.

I seriously doubt it! If anything, it would also get you dates!

what is your field?
