I lived up north my entire life & dealt with the snow! I hated the drastic cold, windchill, & 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 frigid all the time. I just hated it. I then decided that enough was enough. I was going to move 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 Florida where the heat is brutal. I found that Alabma had everything I could ever want, then the heat there is satisfactory & the winter time season is mild. I would get enough to wear shorts in the Summer & pants in the winter. I wouldn’t be covered in sweat to death or frigid ever. Isn’t that great? I am glad that I chose to live in Tuscaloosa now that I am in Alabama. Is it a entirely known location? No & I am cheerful. The last thing I would want is to be in a sizable tourist trap. I also didn’t want to be in a large city. I wanted enough things I like to do however a rural village feel. That is quintessential Tuscaloosa, AL; Now that I live with ideal weather 24/7, I can’t feel how long I lived up north, life is too long to live in inferior weather conditions. I hated being frigid & stuck indoors all afternoon. Now I can cherish my outdoor season. I can plant shrubs, flowers & maintain a vegetable garden in my Tuscaloosa home.
