Its all what you make of it. I hated the snow, cold and season change, so I moved to FLA and I love the weather. But it's not for everyone. I'll still only visit MA in July or August and I don't miss the season changes at all.

When I moved here, my take home pay when up, it's all relative.

After about a year or so, I got used to the heat. Now when I go back to MA, regardless of what season it is, I freeze to death. Your body will adjust eventually. You just have to give it time. On a side note, Brevard County is about 30 minutes from my house, and there are alot of great places to live out there. I wouldn't mind living there eventually myself...
