I lived up north my entire life and dealt with the snow, however i hated the extreme cold, windchill, and getting feet of snow each year.
I spent most of my life pushing around a snow blower.
I would chip ice off my windshield. It was so cold all the time. I just hated it. I then decided that enough was enough. I was going to transfer anywhere better, somewhere a lot warmer. I then settled on the idea of moving anywhere south. I did not want to be in TX or FL where the heat is brutal. I found that Alabma had everything I could ever want, but the heat there is sufficient and the winter season season is mild. I would get enough to wear shorts in the summer time and pants in the winter. I wouldn’t be perspiring to death or freezing ever. Isn’t that great? I am happy that I chose to live in Tuscaloosa now that I am in Alabama. Is it a truly known location? No and I am glad. The last thing I would want is to be in a crucial tourist trap. I also didn’t want to be in a crucial city. I wanted enough things to do but a rural neighborhood feel. That is quintessential Tuscaloosa, AL; Now that I live with ideal weather 24/7, I can’t believe how long I lived up north, but life is too long to live in inferior weather conditions. I hated being cold and stuck indoors all afternoon. Now I can enjoy my outdoor season. I can plant shrubs, flowers and maintain a vegetable garden in my Tuscaloosa home.
