My husband and I have visited New Mexico several times and love it. We considered living there but would miss the quaint feeling that is NE. Winters here may be a bit different. I remember a few years ago some friends skiied Ski Apache and couldn't get there because the roads were closed in the town they stayed in due to ice. We drive on anything, so you may wish to consider towns bordering interstate 93. I was on the board of Rivier College few years ago and lived in the White Mountains at the time. The day of our monthly meeting followed a major snow storm. Two people attented the meeting. I was one of them, those from the Nashua area stayed home. 93 is usually good traveling in the winter if you have all wheel drive. Believe it or not Plymouth area does a great job of plowing, better than further south.

Great points about the commute, mlynn. Wasn't thinking about all the snow. I agree, Kate, about the quaint feeling. That's what I'm looking for. I've gotten used to the sprawling west over the last 15 years, but I'd like to try a place with more of a small community feeling. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and husband is from Mass. We come visit New England often and I enjoy it. I haven't been very exposed to the long, cold winter in a long time, though. I do have a lot of memories of treking my way to school in the snow after the roads have been plowed, with giant snow drifts surrounding the sidewalks. It's taken me a couple of years to "warm" to the idea of living in NE, but I've come to really want to and probably even want to more than dh now! I would like to live in a safe place to raise the kids and really plant some roots. I think I've decided that our lifestyle won't be soooo different with the climate change. It's probably 30 degrees here now and so we definately do less outdoors in the winter. The big difference may be the length of the winter, and I guess the amount of snow since it's dry here.

Thanks so much for all your input, I'm really enjoying it. By the way mlynn, checked out your site- it's nice!
