When is it Time to go South?
Yesterday the hubby and I were discussing how done with Winter we both are. I said to him that although I'm tired of Winter now, I do think I'd miss the changing of the seasons if we were to live in a tropical climate that didn't change four times a year.
To that he replied that yes, in theory, it can be pleasant to experience four different seasons a year. However, here in central Pennsylvania, it's really nearly eight months of winter weather. This year winter started early in October and will no doubt continue well into May or so.
Not only is it cold and windy the majority of those days, it is also usually cloudy on the other days. To have a pleasant sunny and warm day is a rarity in these parts.
What makes people decide to go South?
Do these people just hate snow?
What exactly is it that pushes people over that "edge" and causes them to make the migration south?
Ironically, I'm finding myself having the "Should I move South, and if so, when and where?" thoughts. I've become one of those old coots I joked about for so long.
What are your thoughts? If you are one of those that migrates south, how did you settle on the decision to do so?
Right now I just want some sunny, warm days.
