I'm tired of winter!!!!!
« on: February 15, 2013, 03:34:38 PM »
I'm tired of winter!!!! Been thinking of moving south for the passed few years.  Actually much longer than that!! Does anybody know of a good place to move Where winter doesn't feel like it last 17 months out of the year?  Any thoughts, suggestions or telling me I'm crazy are welcome.

can't help you there, but we hit 55 today and i have put on a t-shirt and commenced chipping the mud off the horses!  it won't last longer than it takes to turn them out again, but it makes me feel spring-ish  :evil:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Goatman,
Short of a brief stint in the Dallas area, I've been a life long resident of Louisiana...it works for me.  Although we're currently battling a little cool snap, it dipped down to 39° last night, but currently it's 65° and Sunny.  :-D

Good food and good people...the only advice I can offer is don't draw any conclusions based on reality shows filmed in the state.  As a proud resident of the state, those are painful to watch.  :)

Central New York is much the same way.  You use a heater and an air conditioner in the same day!!

I've lived in California (beautiful weather)... Worked in Vegas, Nashville, Baltimore, to name a few, but there are no better people than the ones right here in Louisiana.. Sportsman's Paradise and southern hospitality :-D
You would have to adjust from freezing to the heat and humidity...lol

It's strange. I've been thinking about  Louisiana for a long time.  It seems to be calling me. Maybe it's getting time to answer.

Just come on down, you will hate to go back.  We do have an occasional hurricane or tornado.  Could be forgetting but I don't thing we have been to teens in a few years.  I have super on one hive and after this week end may put on some on other hives.  In fact the one I have put a super on that makes 2 on it.  Where I worked there were several from Ohio, my boss was one, he said that his wife wanted to go back because of kin folks, he wished they could stay.  Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, or Florida would  be fine, of course we all think ours is the best.

Nah, Florida is full.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

NC is still tops for variety. Today, I was in full sunshine. One mile later, rain. 3 miles after that, snow. We have whatever you may want, except decent wages.

Guess that would be dronecicle where you are.

Skied Mon for daughter's field trip in a sweat--no hat, no mittens. Nearly frostbit my ears just walking 1/2 mile up and down our driveway yesterday---woodstove and fireplace going all night, and the house was 57 this morning. So, don't move to WI :)


My advice: Get some winter hobbies! I adore winter, since it's the only time of year for my winter sports and hobbies :) Plus, it's my rest time from too many 18-hour summer workdays. So I soak up winter.

Maybe that's advice #2: Work yourself silly all summer, and soon winter will look extremely attractive.

There is something to be said for turning off the lights and siting bundled up in front of a crackling fire with your wife while you listen to the wind howl.  

The trouble is sitting is about all I can do now in that situation.

Sitting is all you better be doing, since you didn't write "my"wife.
