If the Carolinas are a "middle ground" I would hate to know what Florida is like in terms of heat and humidity. My son lived in Chapel Hill for several years and we thought we might relocate from New England to there and took a number of trips there in the summer. I could not handle that degree of summer intensity, not even to the point of walking his dog a few blocks. Though winter is milder than here, unfortunately I would not survive the summers. Anyone from the north contemplating the Carolinas should, imo, rent a place for June-July-Aug to see if they can handle it. Some people do thrive in super heat/humidity.

Unless you wear politics or ideology on your sleeve nothing has changed for most folks in NC.
