North Carolina has 4 very distinct seasons with very long Autumns and Springs. The Winter is noticeable but mild and short by East Coast standards with a slightly longer Summer that is warm to hot but not nearly as bad as areas in the extreme South and along the Gulf Coast.

A few miles to the west of me Ludington, which is right on Lake Michigan, got less snow than we did. I am only 6 or 7 miles from the Lake, but it blows over Ludington and hits us. After living in the Northeast for decades as well as here, I can tell you that this winter, while snowy was quite easy. Warm spells in between the cold snaps kept the ground cover low, and didn't just drive the cold into you. We only were below 0 at most 3 or 4 times the entire winter and then only overnight, never once did we stay below 0 an entire day.

Short answer: Anyplace can get Lake effect, but it isn't like upstate NY where you get dumped on and it doesn't go away until Spring.
I used to live on the East Side of Milwaukee, about 6 blocks from Lake Michigan. Sometimes, our neighborhood would get pounded with lake effect snow, then you'd go a mile west (away from the lake) and there'd be but a dusting. I'm not a meteorologist, but I think it might've had something to do with the prevailing winds being N and NW in the winter. That's why the eastern side of the lake (Michigan) got wider bands of lake effect snow.

Somewhere in the lower Midwest, Upper South. Somebody said Maine. Really? The title says "All Four Seasons" Maine barely has a summer

Just come back to Upstate NY. Maybe you can move to a bigger city like Syracuse, Rochester, Albany or even Ithaca.

Actually Maine usually has a hot Summer and you can bank on 90+ every single year. It gets warn early to mid June and stays nice until early October. Lived there for 20 years, never seen a year it did not top 90.

The beauty and open space in Oregon appeals to us, but the weather seems to still be too much like Ky...or am I wrong? Anyone who could clarify this...or let us know about weather in states other than Ky and the North East(We've lived there too.) We'd greatly appreciate any input.
California has all four seasons pretty much 12 months out of the year, depending on what area you visit. That is hard to match in any other state.

If you hate lake effect snow, that's kind of a weaker reason to discount Upstate NY... since the heavy lake effect can be easily avoided by staying away from the eastern shore of Lake Ontario.

I have heard such vast opinions about the summers in Maine. Some people are saying they barely exist and others, like yourself, are saying they are brutal and in the 90's.

Can anyone else weigh-in? Does it depend on the part of Maine?
