Today it's cold and snowing and my garage is full of slush off the cars and if this is any indication of the winter to come, I may bypass ya'll and head straight to Central America!!!!

Come on fellow upstaters, this is too much too soon and I'm one if Ms. Empire's biggest fans..........
Could be worse....Rochester got lucky last year when Buffalo got CREAMED with that early October snowstorm.

Real smart. Let's go out of our way to make our already ridiculously congested and water-challenged city even more congested and more water challenged.

Duh!
I agree with on this one

Thanks...

And can you imagine the brutal humidity? Plus you are closer to the equator.

YOU CAN KEEP NORTH CAROLINA. YUCK!
Ah, but those ocean breezes on the coast sure do beat the A/C, and my favorite motto of all "No MO Snow", and if we run out of water, we've always got Wal-Mart. Every place has it's pro's and con's, just remember, "Happiness must be grown in one's own garden".

...interesting. I don't recall ever saying that it doesn't get cold, like I said, that would be ridiculous. I said that I don't mind the cold too much and that it isn't as bad as some people exaggerate it out to be....but it gets cold; its been in the 20's all day today and we've got a good 7-9 inches of snow on the ground in our yard. Its fine though, its December and snow is still nice in December..... and there hasn't been any before this. By late March its a different story, but by then we can get a few days in the 60's and 70's every once in a while.

um, WHY ARE PEOPLE FIGHTING THE NY VS. NC BATTLE OVER THE WEATHER? I MEAN WHO CAN REALLY DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE WEATHER? WEATHER IS HARDLY A VALID REASON TO TRY TO GET A 'ONE-UP' ON ANOTHER STATE. geez, people.

Post NC is considered "in between"........

Think a lot of it is perception...............It seems like people that don't like the extreme cold of the north (NY) or the heat/humidity of FL think that NC is a happy medium. I don't know if that is true and the other thing that makes NC popular I have heard is that NC isn't as "southern" as other states????????? Again, a mix of northerners and southerners with colleges, great health care/hospitals mixed in. Don't know, haven't been to Raleigh, only the coast and desparately wish that I could live there right now and have enough cash to afford what must be an amazing mortgage and hurricane insurance bill for the Outer Banks, but no.................Don't think I will be feeling those ocean breezes full time anytime soon. Maybe for one week next summer????????

North Carolina is definitely a southern state. There are many tranplants in the Raleigh and Charlotte areas yes; but not enough to make NC less of a southern state. NC is the nascar mecca, tobacco central, etc. I can see that argument flying in much of Virginia though.
