I'm originally from upstate NY and will be back there in about 2 wks for a vacation in the 1000 islands. I really miss the seasons and would like to move back, but my husband is a land survey crew chief who has always lived in FL.
He puts on thermal underwear when it gets around 50 degrees during our winters here. He said he would only move there if he had an indoor job!!! Are there any other land surveyors that peruse this sight with some survival tips? Thanks a lot.

i'm no surveyor, but i see these guys outside all the time...year round.

if your husband has to wear thermal underwear at 50 degrees, then i don't think NY is for him. 50 degress is T shirt weather for us.

Go for it - you and he will love the seasons. I am a Professional land Surveyor with Registrations in Florida, Vermont and Massachusetts. I grew up in Florida and worked outdoors surveying 10 years in Florida and Puerto Rico. Moved to Massachusetts in January of 1980 and immediately began working outside in 2 degree weather. The first winter was difficult but you quickly get used to it. I am convinced that the human body will acclimate to to the climates of any region IF YOU TRY. If you live in the south and never leave your air conditioned home, office or car you will never get used to the heat. If you live up north and never leave your heated home, office or car you will likewise never get used to the cold.

Dress appropriately, get outside and enjoy the weather and you will acclimate sooner than you think. Tell your husband that all the leaves are off of the trees and underbrush in the winter and line cutting is almost non-existent. He will understand that if he has been hacking lines through the palmetto thickets. He will also stay dry walking across the ice of frozen swamps instead of wading through the muck - winter has many advantages.
