    I'd like to live in LA for a few years. Can you put me up while I find a job/apt?

    I'm not a Yankee but I love winter, which works out well since it's about 7 months long up here.

    A bonus is that cold weather clothes >>> summer clothes.

    Doesn't really bother me. I enjoy the winter (although this one has been especially brutal, and I'm sick of it).

    People from sunny states who wonder how residents of the northeast survive remind me of suburbanites who wonder how people can live in the city. Just like there's a reason people are willing to pay $1 million for a one bedroom condo in NYC, there's a reason people are ready to live through the winter months in Boston, Chicago, NYC, and Montreal.

    undoubtedly ... that's why we're asking what in the hell it could possibly be?

    I'm somewhere in the middle on this. By the time I left, aside from the salt water, I loathed Florida. However, it would take a pretty extreme case for me to move north of the Mason Dixon. For me, Georgia and the Carolinas are the ideal climate - the seasons change, we get the hot summers (which I like), cool winters with the occasional cold spell (which I also like), and fall and spring days tend to be staggeringly beautiful.

    What I wouldn't want is the extremes. Eight-month summers followed by four months of warm "winter" wasn't what I wanted, and that's one of the things that drove me from Florida. On the other hand, I can't imagine living with the long, cold winters Yankees have to negotiate.

    How can people live in Florida?

    It's less about 'living' and more about waiting to die.

    And Tennessee, let's not forget Tennessee. Besides Memphis, doesn't get the scorching, humid summers like Atlanta (lived there for years so I know of what I speak) but still gets a fairly mild winter, with a bit of snow and moderate temperatures.

    You live in a bumblefuck city. I live in Chicago. Ergo, I win regardless of weather situation. THAT is why the Yankees do it. Yankee cities are much better than the south.

    Didn't you say you just stay at home all the time? Not sure why it matters where you live when you are at home 247 365

    I thought you asked about a "real city"? [​IMG]

    I tremble at the thought of leaving the confines of the Northeast elitist/intellectual culture.

    You went to college at a middling state school in the midwest.
