Live in the Triad area. Moved from the Cleveland Ohio area nearly 40 years ago (Wow, that seems odd saying that). The humidity in late July and August in Cleveland was worse than here, but only lasted for about 4 -6 weeks. Here, the humidity is high for about 4-5 months. After a month or so, you get used to it though. The weather in Charlotte is always a few degrees higher that here, and the risk for major storms seems higher there (Greensboro is protected by the mountains in the west, and enough distance from the ocean to avoid many of the storms).
That said, the live in the Triad is nice. People complain about the commute. I point out that if the traffic is bad, I take a different route home and make it in 25 minutes instead of 15! Taxes aren't bad here, the state legislature is a microcosm of our federal Congress, dysfunctional at times, but the people who live here would give you their shirt off of their backs if you need it.
Now,if we can keep those pesky Yankees from moving down here and ruining it!
My favorite line from here:
