For me, there easily isn’t too much difficulty choosing to live in the south over the north.
This is often seen as forever puzzling to members of my family.
They are all from the fantastic absolutely white north just as I am. However, I chose to live in the land of the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C heat pump right out of college. It’s been decades but I still get grief from family members over my option to live in the south. Their argument has mostly to do with local culture and proximity to family. That is an argument that has plenty of merit. However, my argument is that I just couldn’t take the winter. My life growing up, I just dreaded the winter. I hated having to be cooped up in the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C all winter. I didn’t much care for Winter outdoor athletic hobbys so there easily wasn’t much more to do than stay inside and be warmed by the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C furnace. Once I got a scholarship to a southern college, I jumped at the chance to leave all that Winter and Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C heating behind me. I graduated from that southern college and simply never left. And who can blame me? I live in an section where the daylight shines all Winter and the heat pump hardly even kicks on. That is the sort of Winter I’m interested in. The Summer is a scorcher but I have a fantastic Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C heat pump to get myself and others through that with relative ease. So to me, choosing this sort of life over what I grew up with is not a hard option at all. And if my family were able to live where I do, they might see it the same way.
