Wow-its remarkably civil For me, not ever wanting to move to the South pretty much is trumped by weather. I love snow (no, I don't mind driving in it) and cold weather and I hate humidity. What passes for steamy here is business as usual in the Carolinas...ugh. A lot of people also tell me that I'll get tired of snow/the cold eventually. Let's put it this way. At 90 years of age my great grandmother was still venturing out to the woodpile in slippers and a housecoat in single digit weather. My great grandfather hunted from stand every frigid December morning during shotgun season into his late 70s. We like the cold

I agree. We had alot of days in the 90's in GA this summer (and some over 100), and each day I'd check the weather in NJ to compare. On most of those days, the temp was only around 2 degrees lower in NJ, but the humidity was 10% higher or more.

Now, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, etc., get some nasty humidity, but I'm just not seeing it here in GA or NC. I think that story was cooked up by some good ole' boys down here to try and deter us Yankees from coming down.....lol.

You are kidding right? "2 degrees lower"? I think you forgot a 0. While we were sweating out 20 whatever 90+ degree days in a row NJ/NYC looked to have very pleasant weather. There were 4 days in August where it topped 90 back home, and 8 where it didn't touch 80. My favorite was August 22. In Atlanta it was 104. In New York it was 67. Don't trivialize the summers here. They can be much more brutal than anything you get back back home. Yes the humidity can be somewhat less but the temps skyrocket. What makes it at all bearable is AC is everywhere.

It's not Florida or Mississippi or, God forbid, Houston but it is a shock to the system when you get stretches like we had this year.

Atlanta in August:
History : Weather Underground

NYC in August:

All I know is that everyone I talked to was miserable in NJ this summer, and I didin't find this year in Atlanta to be bad at all. Granted, it got to over 100, but as long as you weren't out shingling a roof, it was tolerable. Maybe next year will be different, but so far, I'm OK with the summers here.

Summer heat aside, I still need cold weather for it to feel like Christmas. Gathering around the woodstove to make hot cocoa kind of loses its luster when its 75 outside

The summer in NJ was great. I was able to turn off the AC for almost two weeks in August. It seems like summer is now as the temp for the last week was 70-s and 80-s. We are going to the beach at 2PM as the water temp is 72 degrees and finally the beach is free. Best kept secret at the NJ Shore, Sept. and 1st week of Oct. SSSSHHHH don't tell anyone as the crows are gone.
