    Off the top of my head, I cannot recall a worse winter, weather-wise, in my nearly seven full decades. The inconvenience has been maddening.

    My problem? I don't know how to live anywhere else. In the South and Midwest, I feel as though I'm on a different planet. On the West Coast, one has to drive too much, even within the major cities. And in Europe, they don't let me enter without checking to see if I have a return ticket home.

    So the Northeast it is, fucking snow, cold, and all.

    Florida. Lots like you (and me) down there. Plenty of AC. Lower taxes. Sort of crowded, though. But then, so is the NE. At least you have the Super Bowl. That's got to be some consolation.

    Nifty...don't fall prey to lying, self promoting news idiots. There were three huge storms in 1969 each 4 to 5 feet in rapid succession which closed many school districts for two weeks even after they had a week for cleanup during Christmas vacation. In 1978 there were huge snowstorms one of which closed down the central artery and multiple people perished in their cars right in downtown Boston. Winter snow that year blew straight through March and deep into April.

    We get it… you guys have had a lot of snow this year but let's not get carried away.

    UNLESS we want to put up with high housing costs in CA for nice weather, we have to accept 3 months cold and 3 months hot
    Northeast areas : we put up with 3 months cold , no way around that
    Southeast areas ; we put up with 3 months hot and muggy , no way around that

    I could put up with 3 months hot but I refuse to live in high humidity zone (Houston TX, North and South Carolina, although Greenville SC is a very nice area... and Naples FL is quite decent).... I narrow my retirement location to Chandler AZ because of its (hot but) low humidity and plenty of good Vietnamese foods around,,, I just got back from Orange county S.CA for our 40-yr HS reunion, weather was nice but too darn crowded for me... I would enjoy it for a few months but I am afraid I would get bored living there... Zo lived there, he knows

    I lived in San Diego off and on for seven years and made extended visits to La Habra in Orange County every year from 1951 to 1966. In the early years Orange County was like Paradise to me as a kid coming from southeastern PA with its cold damp winters and steamy summers. By 1960, the smog had gotten pretty bad in the L.A. area for a week or two at a time but when the air was clear it was wonderful. San Diego was even better because there was no smog. In the years I was there, I remember only three days that I wished we had air conditioning in our apartment up on the mesa north of downtown San Diego and it was in the middle of August around 1972. Back then it might get up to 90 in the middle of the day up above sea level maybe 1,000 feet. The drive down to the beach took about fifteen minutes and there the temp would be in the mid 70's. If you liked snow, you could drive inland an hour and a half or so to ski and then go surfing in the evening. I remember New Year's day 1970 floating in the ocean and looking at the snow covered peaks on the horizon.

    The traffic was pretty heavy when I was there and it seemed like there was a new freeway built in the six to nine months I was out of the U.S. But you could still drive as fast as your car or motorcycle would go on the freeways. I understand now that has changed and paradise is no longer to be found there.

    I found a few new/nice 2-BR condos in San Diego (love the weather there) for $350-400 K range, but then the location is far inland and away from my favorite foods

    In late 1972, two friends of mine bought a three bedroom rancher in Pacific Beach for $90,000. Their contract called for them to close the deal within 120 days. After 90 days, they had flipped their contract to another buyer for $135,000. I guess I should have convinced my father to buy a couple of ranchers at the beach back then.
