Winter in Philly isn't all that different from a DC winter. Maybe 2 degrees colder on average. Snow in Philly is hit or miss. Some winters you'll see a lot of it, some winters you won't see it all. It doesn't really have much to do with how cold it is. Mild winters tend to have bigger snowfalls because there's more moisture.

Is North Philly completely out of the question? My wife really likes this apartment complex near temple called Paseo Verde. Since I havent been there yet to actually look into it I dont know how to feel about it. What do you all think?

meh . . . what's the point? It's not a great neighborhood and there's nothing around to walk to. You'd be much better off in Fishtown or NoLibs.

You can't have the great, urban lifestyle you want and be as hung up on parking and cars as you are. The two are mutually exclusive. When you live in a place where you can walk to everything you find a place to park your car and you leave it there. Eventually you realize how much money you're spending on a rusting scrap of metal and you sell it before it costs you even more money.

That your choice if you prefer to drive further to your job in northeast philly. That part of north philly is okay close enough to temple university. But your commute to work would be horrible. Nice and newer apartments you may like but there arent many of those in philadelphia like jacksonville. I made the move from florida to philly so maybe i could help PM me if you have questions.
