HATE THE COLD? Don't move to the tropics! Spend a year in the Far North instead! It may be counterintuitive, but after our year's sojourn in Fairbanks, winter in Nashville, which used to seem cold now feels balmy. I used to put on long johns when the thermometer dipped below forty-five degrees, but now I can actually run around in the snow in twenty- and thirty-degree weather without a coat and feel fairly comfortable for short periods of time. Not only can I handle the cold with a lot more grace now, but I also think winters in Tennessee are short-lived and sunny. There's nothing like living in cold, cold Alaska to make you appreciate winter in the South.
