One can argue that living in the south, you will never experience real changing of seasons… Some say that the weather conditions in the south is agitated.
The northern states experience a winter time like I cannot imagine.
Snow afternoons, overcast skies for weeks as well as freeze warnings do not sound like fun to me at all. I prefer the humidity as well as sunshine. When it is cold, the only thing I can do to be comfortable is to hot 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 heaters or fireplaces to heat their homes. My house does not have central heating, therefore, when it gets cold enough, my buddy and I cut out the electric heaters! During the summer time months, storing the heaters can be a pain. With such limited space, the heaters usually get other things piled on top of them as well as it can be a pain getting them out when it is time. The heaters can also be discouraging because they are either too hot or not hot enough. I do not like sleeping with an electric heating system on because I have heard too numerous stories about house fires. It is horrifying to feel 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 always choose the southern states! Humidity as well as sunshine are my favorite things!
