I wish it only cost me 981,00 to heat my house--( 1600 sq ft rambler, built in 1955, clear inside plastic sealing all windows, oil fired boiler )

My fuel bill alone is over $2,000 per year.

Maybe that explains why we cut and split so much wood last year.
After drying a year, we will start using a supplemental wood stove in the basement this fall.

The high heating bills and high property taxes are taking a toll ( $$$$) on this retired Minnesotan and I am awaiting the day I move.

Summers in Minnesota are terrific.

I wouldn't mind having a small shack , cabin , or trailer house to spend May-Sept here in Minnesota after I leave.

Summers are quite nice in Minnesota, though.

When I leave for down south, I would like to have a small, cheap, trailer house or cabin/shack to come back and spend May-Sept here.

I have a 60 yr. old house that does not have insulation between the inside and outside walls! My high heat bills are only Dec./Jan./Feb. not 6 months!

Of course, I would get higher electric if I ever have a warmer than normal summer!
Well you must be the human equivalent of the world's hardiest palm tree. I can't imagine minnesota being warm enough to not use heating in Nov and March and perhaps most of the time in April

It's not warm enough, don't let them kid you.

Hawaii has the best summer weather (not to mention winter)

most places in Florida or Hawaii have the best summer weather in the U.S. and near perfect weather year round in fact. Perfect beach weather almost any time
Phoenix is a bit too warm... I think 50C (122F) would be approaching my limits.
