You have written 22 posts about the lack of sunshine and bad roads. You seem to have a very grave apprehension about moving to Michigan, and rightly so, considering what you've share about yourself in this thread.

For your good health, please don't move here. I would recommend sticking to perpetually sunny environments. You mentioned Houston for a possible job relocation. I think it would suit you better.

Not the impression I got...people here seem to recognize that it is a real phenomenon. However, if the OP suffers from depression (and anxiety tends to go with it), the concerns about gloomy skies are certainly valid. It's true that a move like this tends to be very stressful in itself, and that can bring depression on, too. Stress from moving, a totally new environment to adjust to, and SAD are not a good combination, especially for someone who knows that they are very vulnerable.

I agree with this and well said. There is nothing wrong with the OP not wanting to move to Michigan for various reasons, she needs to listen to her heart (it can be heard clearly throughout this thread) and be where she will be happiest. There are plenty of places that you couldn't pay me to move to, Florida and Texas being two of them, but I love Michigan and am very happy that we moved here. Different strokes for different folks.

Then I would argue pretty near 90% of the roads in America fail some aspect of that. So either people have an unrealistic expectation of "good road" or to just focus on Michigan "good road" short comings ignoring a hypothetical norm creates a misconception. Or to put it another way if NO PLACE in America has "good roads" whats the point of the concern?

Ain't that the sad truth. Maybe not 90%, though, but the number is pretty high.

Just setting expectations, that's all.
