I lived up north my entire life and dealt with the snow.
- I hated the severe 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 move somewhere better. Somewhere a lot warmer. I then settled on the idea of moving somewhere south. I didn’t want to be in Texas or Florida where the heat is brutal. I found that Alabma had everything I could ever want. The heat there is reasonable and the winter season is mild. I would get enough to wear shorts in the summer and pants in the winter. I wouldn’t be sweating 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 really known location? No and I am glad. The last thing I would want is to be in a big tourist trap. I also didn’t want to be in a huge city. I wanted enough things to do but a rural town 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. Life is too long to live in inferior weather conditions. I hated being cold and stuck indoors all day. Now I can enjoy my outdoor season. I can plant shrubs, flowers and maintain a vegetable garden in my Tuscaloosa home.
