I'm definitely a cold weather person and the winters here are dry, so it's not half as bad as New england. I can't stand humidity.

After living in the southwestern deserts over 20 years, you'll find moving to Montana's weather scene is a welcome relief! You just have one other hurdle to deal with. That's adapting to a dry climate coming from Houston. It takes some people a long time to adapt to that. I found that my first winter here wasn't much of an issue because I was already use to dry. It took me a couple of seasons to adapt to snow and ice travel with my 4x4. Everyone just kept beeping at me from behind and they slowly broke me in. You know how it is in a warmer climate, you move the steering wheel as quick as you want. You don't have to think about the consequenses!

Not in a lifted rig you don't, maybe in a sports car !
If you have a high profile rig and you try to "whip it" you will "flip it"

No thanks, I'll take the cold (no fleas, no cockroaches, very little crime, no hurricanes)
I don't think I could buy property in Florida that would pay for itself and feed me income from day one after closing like I found here.

I lived in GA and hated it! I felt like one of those lizards in the pet store. Hot, humid, buggy.
You get cleaned up to go to work and you are soaked by the time you get to the car!
Tired of my viola sticking to my shoulder! The weather here is just great. I agree with the above pro-cold comments...you can always put more clothes on and build a fire! Cheers!

The older I get, the less I like cold. I tend to stay inside during the winter, except for necessary chores.
No, I don't ice fish. No, I don't ski or snowboard or snowmobile.
Someday, we may become snowbirds...

bhouston77386, as others have pointed out, Montana's low relative humidity makes BOTH the wintertime cold temperatures and the summertime hot temperatures much more tolerable than similar temperatures in the high relative humidity East Coast, for example.

On the other hand, the low relative humidity can lead to shrinkage and cracking in some wood furniture ...

I've lived in IL, IN, PA, WY, ID, MT, CO, FL & GA. As long as I'm on high ground I've got no problems with cold. Humidity bugs the heck outta me - can't stand it for very long. It's one of the many reasons we live here.
