I am SO looking forward to moving south this spring or fall. Winter is definitely here. Brrr.

This central Minnesota native is very glad he moved 870 miles south to the Ozarks of north Arkansas.


Today we are 42 degrees warmer than where my kids reside.


I wanted 4 seasons but much milder winters.
I have that here.

Arkansas is high on my list. Tennessee is still on there because I would be close to my brother. I will be traveling to both places this spring.

For me, it will be which place has the best COL.

Man up - only 900 accidents in MN today. That first snow people act like they've never driven here before. I drove behind people going 5 MPH on roads that were perfectly dry & ice free - with one foot on the brake (brake light goes on every couple of minutes).

I spent my first 30 winters in cold, cold, Chicago. If I never see winter conditions again, I'd be fine with that!

They act like that every single year. I never have & never will understand it.

Same thing every year in Colorado, first snow and people go crazy with accidents. And then there's the hapless guy in his wifebeater tshirt and flip flops standing by his little car in a ditch. The whole "WHAT were you thinking" comes to mind.

It is the same way here (central NY state). First snow you would think nobody knew how to drive. It's awful.

@AZDB Thanks for sharing that inspiring story. It's always a joy to hear stories like this.

Hearing the Midwest weather reports makes me so glad to be in Arizona. The mornings are a bit chilly but the afternoons have been gorgeous.

I was up rather early the other morning and hearing a ruckus outside went out on the balcony. I was quite startled to see a herd of javelinas on the apartment complex grounds. There were three or four javelinas and they were quite large. For some reason they were rooting around a tree.
