Took me an agonizing 20 minutes to dig my car out this morning. I was ten minutes late for work; but my boss was even later.

Thread about Evansville makes it to second page; high fives all around!

We're planning to move somewhere south of Bloomington and north of Evansville next year. I'm pretty sure the winters will be milder than here in northwest Indiana, but not as mild as more southern states.

Just how mild are you looking for and how many miles are you willing to drive? My parents lived in northern Arkansas and they had milder winters but the summers were plain awful hot. For awhile we were thinking of moving to southern Missouri. I watched the weather for two years on a daily basis---comparing southern Missouri and southern Indiana. In winter Missouri got hit by ice over and over while southern Indiana seemed to bask in 40 or 50 degree temps. Missouri summers are hotter.

We finally decided on southern Indiana for several reasons---not too far from our daughter here in northwest Indiana, milder winters, summers are a trade off, maybe not as cool as up here by the lake but also not as hot as Arkansas and Missouri. And we saw lots of nice country. Just my two cents. Hope that helps.

Default yes it is warmer

it is definitely warmer. we love the weather, but it does get hot in humid in the summer (which i like). i wore a down vest until about the end of november (so no sleeves, no gloves or hat). december gets cold through january and february, but by the end of february it starts to get warmer. i think my crocuses came out end of feb. we are northern tranplants and the weather is the thing we like the best. personally, we'd like a little more culture and bike lanes, but e-ville is working on that so we can't complain. nice people here too. good luck.

The summers here are worse than south Florida on some days.

I would recommend Indianapolis instead of Evansville and it isn't much farther from Madison

Question Six months of snow! But what about there?

Well... it's not! Take it from another Wisconsinite who's looking to leave behind all the shoveling! These last two years... 6' of snow ongoing, for at least 4 months (besides the months where it was too cold to snow!) - so much snow there wasn't a place to put it all, so it had to be literally trucked out (a common winter occurrence here). And that's just SE WI!

Common average winter windchill at -20. When the sun comes out and it's in the 30s or 40s, you'll find ppl out in their shorts riding bikes! I haven't really spent any time in Mad-town, so I couldn't speak for things there, but the Lake (Michigan) makes a huge difference in the weather in SE WI. Beautiful! But definitely cold!

I grew up in the South - and would rather live here than in an area which gets a lot of ice storms! That is no weather for driving! However... hm... I'm looking to relocate to the 'Ville or other KY/S. IN area, but I don't want to completely be amiss of the snow! Maybe I'll just have to take a few trips back... Hm...

What's it *really* like in S. IN / KY winters? And the other seasons - what are they like?

I've spent the last 35 years of my life in Gulfport Ms. I'm from E'ville and I'd love to go back home to live. Maybe I'm living in the past. Love the four seasons. Kind of humid in the summer, but it's like that down here too. I miss the Ohio river, fall leaves, beautiful springs and summers, and snow angels. I have grand kids now, so I'm stuck. But I go back every year to see my mom, eat coconut and peanut
long john donuts and visit the fall festival. E'ville is a nice place to raise a family.

The Ohio Valley doesn't really have Spring anymore. It has lasted about 2-3 weeks the past few years. This year we went from dark grey winter to 90F and humid in a snap.
