Default Where to live, not too hot, not too cold?

I'm not moving any time soon. I've lived all my life in Minnesota. I've thought of moving to South Dakota or Nebraska sometime down the road. I have plans of starting a manufacturing business making attachements for riding mowers. I'm tired of how liberal the politics are here (not trying to start a political topic) and how cold the winters can get. BUT I have no plans of moving way south like Florida, Texas or Arizona. South Dakota has no personal or corporate income tax. I don't plan on moving until the business is up and making money. Nowhere really humid as I HATE MOSQUITOS. The closer you are to a pond or marsh it seems the more there are.

Don't forget the fire ants, killer bees and ticks. The beautiful women and great fishing lakes offset those though.

..but you get ice storms, which I think are worse than snow...

I have relatives in Florida that were getting tired of the extreme heat, wanted more seasonal changes and were seriously contemplating moving to the Carolinas, then they saw the Carolinas getting an ice storm and decided to stayed put... (Although they did get a 5th wheel up here as a "summer home")

Nowhere is exempt from weather. I think Yogi Berra said that.

The smoothest climates, IMO; Hawaii and Key West. But with one you get hurricanes, the other you live a ways away...just my two cents.

Default Re: Where to live, not too hot, not too cold?

I've explored many other areas,I've been thinking of moving myself,probably to a much warmer climate--I dont mind HEAT,not crazy about humidity though...and I find ALL of the U.S. States have their disadvantages--seems no where in the USA is "perfect",except maybe Hawaii!--every other state has either too much snow and cold for too many months per year,or is too hot,humid,or has widfires,drought,earthquakes,tonadoes,hurricanes,o r is a ghetto!..

I liked TN when I went there,but it was extremely humid in June when I was there--not much different than MA,where I am now--but I like the fact the winter only lasts a month or two,so you still have 4 seasons-and for the most part the weather is decent,and it IS a beautiful state,and the people there were a lot friendlier than I am used too also!-the fact I like country music and Nashville is "Music City", doesn't hurt either..A friend moved to Shelbyville TN about 15 years ago,and he's got only one regret--that he waited so long to MOVE there!...

I've heard however,much has changed there since I visited in the 1990s,a lot of new construction,zoning law changes,new taxes,high property taxes,etc..but I bet it's still much cheaper to live in TN than it is here...that is probably true for many other states as well..

I have friends who moved to Florida and NC--they say Florida is cheaper to live in than MA,but health care sucks for the most part,and wages are pretty low too--but the warm weather offsets it--one lives in the panhandle,and has narrowly escaped Katrina and several other hurricanes,I think I'd be leery of living there,and humidity could be unpleasant too...I dont like alligators much either!..

The guy who moved to NC says its nice there MOST of the time,but he's had a few nasty storms and ice to deal with,but at least the snow and ice seems to pass quickly,a few days or a week later and its back to 50-60 degrees--he warned me if I moved there ,to sell my vehicles here,and buy one there instead,or I'll have to pay a 1000 dollar tax for bringing mine there?...(I'd rather sell my rotboxes here anyway and buy a rust free Carolina truck anyway,so that wont be a deterrant though)...I hear prices there are rising for homes and land too though..

I think I'd like Arizona,I could take the heat as long as it's a dry heat--and I'd love to live where your vehicles never rust away,and older antique ones are fairly plentiful and cheaper than you'll ever see here..and I've always wanted to see the Grand Canyon,and I'm a rockhound too,so I'd probably like it there..not sure how costly things are there though...or how safe it is ...

Texas sounds tempting too,depending on what area--I've read Dallas and Houston are the only two cities in the USA that seems to be bucking the trend as far as the economy tanking--many jobs there,good ones too,not burger joint minimum wage ones ..not sure if I'd be able to stomach living in a big city though,I prefer a rural simple life--it's just hard to be able to survive in the places like that,since jobs are scarce where the "good life" can be lived it seems..

Up here,with thousands of forclosed homes,crime is rising rapidly,many homeless and crminals are "squatting" in those homes in the cities ,that now are becoming a ghetto quickly,and many forieners are buying these homes at auction lately too,and making the cities into what feels like a smaller version of their forien country now,compared to how it once was here,many dont speak english either...some places here now,I feel like I'm in the wrong country!...I'm not a racist,but I dont want to be one of only a few white american born males left in existance either,and thats how it's getting here..mostly it's the weather I want to get away from,the other issues I could deal with..

I like the north coast of Calif. or Oregon, but it rains all winter. Nothing is perfect.
