I have a similar case although my weather preferences are very different. I will be graduating from high school in the Tampa area in May and am only considering colleges in the North, with my preference being Northwestern in the Chicago area. I can't stand heat and my favorite weather is snow, so Florida has one of the worst climates in the country for me.

It is interesting to me how some people love the cold or love the heat- makes you wonder what is it about their makeup that causes this. I used to have a theory that depending on the month you were born may influence the climate you prefer- just a dumb theory.

Yes. Moved to Illinois. Loved the winters, didn't care for the state so I'm back in Alabama for the moment. Plan to move north again though (thinking Minnesota) because I enjoy four seasons and cold winters - hate summer and summer part 2. For the record, I was born and raised in Alabama and I absolutely despise it.

I'm planning on it. Looking at some more southern mountains. There will still be a cooler winter and perhaps a bit of snow but nothing like I deal with now in CT. Born here and can't wait to leave and enjoy more of the year outside.

I was born in March and never liked winter. Sure, I played outside when I was a kid and still stay outside as much as possible, but all in all, I hate winter.

Sure, weather is a major reason to move.
We moved to Hawaii 12 years ago. Weather is really the only reason to move to Hawaii.
We've loved it, but are moving back to California to get mo' different weather. I'm looking forward to wearing sleeves again!
