I'd like to find an area which has a liberal social climate, and yet, at most, only gets a dusting of snow. I currently live in NE Ohio, and can no longer take the weather. I'm considering the great Northwest (Washington/Oregon). Any other suggestions? Oh....cost of living has to be reasonable, so Hawaii and California are most likely out.

Asheville NC and Charlottesville VA would fit.

Cost of living is not really reasonable in the Pacific Northwest, I'm sorry to say.
How about Austin, Asheville, or Atlanta?

It depends on how much of a variance of weather you want year round. As others have said, North Carolina or Virginia - wouldn't be bad. I would have to agree with your original idea of the PNW though. As I said before though, depends on the variance. North Carolina and Virginia get hotter on average, year round, than the PNW and they also get more sun than the PNW on average. Actually, a place like Portland gets as much sun per year than Cleveland.

Cost of living in Seattle or Portland is not nearly as high as California/Hawaii/etc but it is more expensive than probably any Ohio city.

Thanks to everyone for their input.

My concern with the likes cities in North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Texas is that they are islands of liberalism, in hugely red states.

And, frankly, I'm expecting anywhere desirable that I should move is going to be more expensive than NE Ohio.....it's really depressed here.

North Carolina and Virginia are swing states, not red states, actually pretty close politically to Ohio.
