If you move from a place where you don't get outside because it is 0F to a place where it is only 10F is it going to make that much of a difference?
We all have our likes and dislikes when it comes to weather. I am a 4 season person. That may change...then we go to Plan B.

Another way to look at this is I am moving from an area with DAILY lake effect snow from Lake Ontario (sometimes measured in feet) and NOTHING TO DO to an area with the occasional Nor'easter with lots of opportunities. Snow is not the problem...it is the rural area I currently live in. I may not have adequately described just how "out in the country" I am. One traffic light on the state highway leading to my country road. Operating dairy farm just 1/4 mile away.
Yes, Virginia, places like that still do exist. What was ideal in youth has become annoying in middle age.

My 4WD Jeep and being FIREd puts a different spin on driving in snow no matter where I am in the NE. Just wait until the commuter traffic is done and let the plows go through.

The name of that place would be Minot ND.

Anyone else worried about Mr. Boston?

All the best to you Freebird - you'll be just fine!
These "wallflower" qualities are the things that attracted him to me in the first place.
He needs and has found an intellectual equal and a non-game playing female (BONUS POINTS).
