I probably need a sweater when it drops below 65 F.

Okay ignore my previous post...

If I think the summer's of NC are excellent that means they're way too hot for most people. I'm twisted enough to thoroughly enjoy 98 F with heat index above 110 F, even when I have to work outdoors.

If nobody is dying from the heat, there's a reasonable possibility that I'm not warm.

All you have to do is look at the city-data forums and compare the views, posts and threads to other states. If you took away one or two states NC tops the lists in all categories of other states COMBINED. Look at it, its amazing. Ive lived here my whole life, dont see what the big deal is.

That's because you see get to see the beauty everyday. Enjoy it, embrace it, look at, there are people (like me) who long to do that!

Most people moving here consider nice shopping areas and neighborhoods as beauty.

Not me! I want to be there to enjoy the beauty of the mountains, waterfalls, cool air. You can have the shopping and fancy neighborhoods.

I love the Carolinas because there's more space, more trees, more sun, less congestion, less people, friendlier people, southern culture and food, good beaches etc.

In essence, I delight in the possibility of becoming a southerner and getting as many days at 60F+, 70F+, 80F+, 90F+, even 100 F+ per year as possible. (Most southern states for me would be at least almost as nice.)

What I used to think that was great about NC was the opportunity to live somewhere very southern, yet have great job opportunities too; the best of both worlds.

I understand that weather aside, the Carolinas are changing dramatically and mostly not for the better, so I might end up looking somewhere else.

So far the only downside I can see is getting use to bigger bugs (and more of them) because I'm really afraid of bugs. I set up a yearly plan with an exterminator and he said that I shouldn't get any in the house with the plan. If you go to any place with a warmer climate you will see more bugs.
I know what you mean about the bigger bugs, lived in florida a short time,they all seemed twice as big
