    If you had to chose from moving to a hotter or colder climate, what would you choose? Why?

    I would choose hot because I can do more outdoors than I can in bitter cold.  Also, my hobbies and interest are taylored for warmer weather.

    I never liked the cold climates. Your bones ache when you get older.  In a cold climate it is like being in a refrigerator!

    I would move to a hotter climate.  I spent almost ten years down in GA before moving back north.  It seemed so much colder even in the summer after moving back up here.  I would like to move south again someday.

    I prefer colder places as I prefer indoor activities. I like spending time reading books, watching videos, so on.

    I've lived all over the place, but right now, New York state is home. If I could, I would move somewhere that doesn't ever get below 50 degrees (F). I just don't dig the cold.

      My limit is 40 but I have difficulties past 100 degrees.  Would need a place that only has upper 90's in summer and not much more.

      I can handle really high heat, as long as the humidity isn't oppressive. The temps in Texas were just about right for me.

    I'd choose colder - I like the northwoods, know how to dress for the weather and find it invigorating. Heat is harder for me to tolerate, but like most people I like mild weather. I like the change of seasons and I dislike reptiles, so north is good for me!

    I would choose to live in the cold for because I can tolerate the cold more than the heat. I get uncomfortable in the heat which causes me to stay awake for hours while in the cold I can sleep comfortably.

      I here you about the sleep but if it is zero outside I struggle to wake up and get out of bed.  Conversly, I wake up in high spirits in very warm(85 to 95) and sunny weather.

    I would choose hotter. I don't like the cold it makes me feel miserable.

    Colder. Texas and Florida are my limit of heat and I've lived in these areas for most of my life. So I would only go up.

    It's more about humidity for me. Here in Louisiana, both the summers and winters are brutal due to the high humidity.

    I wouldn't mind moving to a drier state like Texas or California to escape the oppressive temperatures, but then again, I love how often we get thunderstorms here.

    Colder, definitely! I can't stand the heat, and I practically NEED white winters.

    I just moved from Maine back to the Oklahoma/Arkansas area. I missed the sun and warmth, but I will miss the cold and snow this winter. In my perfect world I wouldn't have to chose and could travel between the two based on my current desire.

    I would choose hotter, where I live,the weather is never consistent. I prefer somewhere where it is warm all year round.

      Exactly! Here in Indianapolis we broke a record high of 100 degrees last September then was literally in the mid 60s for daytime highs 2 days latter.  Got sick for 4 weeks with a cough.

      You would probably love Hawaii then!  Hawaii is another one of my favorite states!  My parents and I used to travel a lot and of all the trips we took. the trip to Hawaii was my mother's favorite smile!

    I'll probably never leave Alabama because it's my home.  If I ever had to move, I would probably move to Arizona, which is a hot climate but not as humid as it is in Alabama in the summertime.  I used to travel a lot and Arizona has always been one of my favorite states.  I have a lot of allergies and I've always heard that Arizona is a good place for people with allergies and arthritis.

    I would choose hotter because sunshine tends to make everyone more cheerful and relaxed.  Also because tropical fruit is delicious.  Come to think of it I haven't yet seen many holiday/ultimate lifestyle advertisements that use anything but a tropical beach as a lure, must be something in it...
