Winter does suck. For me what sucks more is 90 degree + 90% Humidity. You can add layers of clothing but can only take so much off before getting arrested. Then you are a slave to AC. Actually in December I am going to Charleston SC as I own a house there. 15 years ago I loved it there and was considering having the place for the winter and spend the summer in the Berkshire mountains when I retire. Maybe have two C bodies ,one in western MA and one in James Island SC. It's 10 minutes from downtown Charleston and 5 minute walk to the ocean. In the last 10 years the place has turned into a zoo. Boeing is now making the Dreamliner just north and BMW moved in. Real estate is going crazy and sooner or later as sea level rises everything is going to tank. Hotter than F#CK in the summer, Traffic is getting bad. I am outa there and selling this spring while the market is hot .
