I have been kind of "researching" online about the weather in the Branson area, but I'm not sure that it's totally accurate. What is the weather like there? We are in Nebraska, and the summers are okay, we don't get much spring and fall anymore, and the winters are completely disgusting. Super cold all winter, lots of snow, truthfully, I'm just really sick of it being so cold. It's bitter for pretty much the whole winter.

Our desire is to move somewhere where we will have four seasons of weather, but with winters that are milder than they are here. Is the Branson area the right place to be looking? Do you have alot of bitterly cold days? Input is much appreciated!

This Winter to me has been more towards what I consider normal.Which has been 3-4 weeks of pretty cold temps.

Well, it's below freezing right now but feels warmer due to the sun. We have 4-6 inches of snow and it's melting as I write. Temperatures in the low to upper 40s are forecast over the next two weeks and the sky is clear and cloudless after fog this morning.

I would say that SW MO (we're on Table Rock Lake) is perfect if you want four distinct seasons and none of them particularly harsh.

That sounds exactly like what I am looking for. I made a post a week ago or so about moving to the Rockaway area. There is just so much bitter cold in Nebraska in the winter anymore, and fall and spring are about non existant. You go from hot to cold with nothing in between

Appreciate your input!

Our family moved to Kimberling City last March from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, so I can totally relate to knowing how harsh those winters are. The locals tell me this has been a rough winter and if this is as bad as it gets, I'll take it!
There's NO WIND!!!! to speak of here. Sure.....a few 30 mph days, but from where I am originally from, that's an everyday occurrence!! The summer was definitely warmer than up north, but not too bad in my opinion. After being here for almost a year, I am happy we moved here because of the weather.

The more I research the area and the weather and all the important things that you look into when you move, the more I think this is a fantastic idea

Thanks for your input!

Cool Nebraska...

Actually, I've worked with a couple of families lately that have moved (or are moving) down to Table Rock Lake from Omaha and I'm sure they'd be delighted to give you all the direct down 'n dirty about the differences... It sounds to me like it's a lot less severe down here.

Although it's not Key West...

I actually have some good friends moving to Merriam Woods this month

The area is definitely appealing. My hubby is from Boston, and when we lived there, it reminded me a bit of MO, all the trees, the winding roads, the water...I think he will really enjoy it. He's getting his first taste of MO in May when we come on vacation. I just wish we were moving sooner, I can't stand the thought of two more winters here!

Never been to Key West, but then again the Florida area has never interested me (nor has island living). Thanks for your input!
