I live in southern Minnesota close to the Iowa border. I've been here since I was a child, but it didn't seem as cold when I was young as it is now. All the snow and cold make it so I don't even leave my house some days even though I really might need to. It is getting nicer now which I have to say is a wonderful change, especially seeing the buds on trees and flowers starting to come out of the ground. I hope we only go up in temperature from now on, no more extra cold days or nights.

I lived in Michigan for 30 years then moved to the central coast area of California where it is temperate most of the year - no mosquitos, humidity, tornadoes, etc and a beautiful place. The worst I can say is we are in a drought, and have the occasional earthquake.

Someday when I retire I might move elsewhere to stretch my dollars but I wouldn't move back to the extreme cold of the Midwest for anything. I do miss the seasons and lakes and nature in general but I just can't take the overcast clouds & grey skies nor the long dark winter days.
Glad though that others can make the best of it.

I'm about an hour south of the cities and am NOT enjoying the below zero stuff. However, it is MUCH better than the 25 below and blizzard conditions that we left in Fargo last weekend.

I am in Minnesota, too. I live in a suburb of Minneapolis. I love it here but it's been too cold!

Well, I'm glad someone is enjoying the temperatures! I'm about 2 hours east of you in Wisconsin and I am NOT enjoying the nasty weather! It makes me unmotivated. But spring is next, thank goodness! emoticon
