The first winter was magical. I had never seen anything like the snowy landscape except in movies. The second and third winters were substantially less magical.

NH can be expensive, but the overall tax burden is still far less than other states in the northeast. The economy, however, has seen a downturn like many other states.

I'll give you the food, but come on, it can get just as hot in the North in the summertime as portions of the South. The second reason would be lack of walkable urban areas and effective mass transit systems/over-reliance on the automobile.

Yeah but in this case, "north" = "Georgia/the Carolinas."

Magnesium Citrate may help with the headaches.

I'm sure it's not news to anyone here, but we get a huge number of what are being dubbed "halfbacks" moving to metro Atlanta & North Georgia, North & South Carolina and Tennessee from Florida.

There are a lot of people that are leaving Florida, but more are settling in the states I mentioned than are returning to the "true" Northern states. Georgia's largest inflow used to be New York, it is now Florida.
