One can argue that living in the south, you will never experience real changing of seasons, then some say that the temperature in the south is agitated.
The northern states experience a winter like I cannot imagine.
Snow mornings, overcast skies for weeks plus freeze warnings do not sound like fun to me at all. I care about the humidity plus sunshine. When it is cold, the only thing I can do to be comfortable is to warm up next to a wood burning fire. In the south, not all homes are equipped with central heat or boilers. Many homes rely on electric boilers or fireplaces to heat their homes. My apartment does not have central heating, therefore, when it gets freezing enough, my associate and I break out the electric heaters; During the Summer months, storing the boilers can be a pain. With such limited space, the boilers usually get other things piled on top of them plus it can be a pain getting them out when it is time. The boilers can also be annoying because they are either too hot or not warm enough. I do not like sleeping with an electric heating system on because I have heard too many stories about apartment fires. It is spine-chilling to suppose that an electric heating system could kill someone. One thing that I am sure of is that when it comes down to where I would choose to live, I regularly choose the southern states! Humidity plus sun are my favorite things!
