Your ideal dream climate . Nothing would make your life better than living where you're most comfortable. Have you moved simply for this reason? Or atleast 90% of it? How has this decision affected your life? What do you like most about your new perfect climate home ?

I would say that to be honest with you, that I was,by force,relocated from humid warm temperate/humid subtropical Galveston, Texas to the shockingly cold highly continental and volatile climate of Indianapolis, Indiana, I can still clearly remember my first winter in Indianapolis; it was January of 1994 and that year was among the worst years of my childhood and even among the worst years of my whole life, that first winter was not only a major shock to my system, it was among the most unpleasant experiences in my life due to all of the cold and snow(yeah I know, itís weird but true, even as a kid I wasnít a big fan of snow or cold weather), so the bottom line is that I wasnít born in the Indianapolis area and I sure as hell donít plan on dying in Indianapolis, as soon or if Life lets me, I plan on eventually leaving Indianapolis and( Hopefully ) relocating back to the Southern United States. Just another tidbit of information about myself, I was born in New Orleans, which is very similar in climate to other gulf coast cities, I.E. Mobile, Alabama, Pensacola, Florida, Beaumont, Texas etc.

Assuming you're 32 years old? Do you have a short term plan to relocate as soon aa possible or just whenever you have a chance in the future?

I moved to Phoenix back in 2001 as soon as I got out of high school, to escape the cloudy snowy cold winters of the northeast that I suffered through for 18 years

I plan to join you in the near future , >2 years . I lived in Ohio for 27 years of my life now I have lived in South Carolina the past year. South Carolina is better than Ohio in my opinion , but Phoenix is just calling my name . what part of phoenix do you reside in? how is it from where you use to live?

I would totally move to a mountain location (or higher elevation) if all indicators were right. I am kinda sick of super hot summers and damp cloudy winters.

Maybe if my city was like at 800 m asl this would be perfect. More snow, cooler shoulder seasons, more pleasant summers.

I definitely chose to spend an exchange year in Toronto because of the winter.

I live in Downtown, right off of 12th St and Washington St. Use the light rail to get to work and back (live right off the 12th St station and work is near the Sycamore St station), and selling my car. Neighborhood is walkable and light rail and buses can get me almost anywhere I need to go.

It is night and day awesome compared to the bedroom community I grew up in back in New York. There were no sidewalks anywhere in town, just one bus line that went to the city, and no rail. Needed a car to get anywhere. And always had to go to the city to do anything fun, which meant getting rides from the parents

Absolutely! Moved from the Midwest to sunny Florida and I love it!! I hate being cold and I really hated that it seemed from Nov to Mar it is COLD, gray cloudy skies and dead trees, grass. No thank!! I know many people really like fall but I personally always disliked it- spring & summer for me. Life is too short to be miserable 6 months out of the year, move where your body & soul yearns.
