You want cold , come up north to Canada, that's were I'm from. Last winter was too cold, and extreme. I have lived in Canada now 45yrs, but originally from the Caribbean, Trinidad. My parents brought me here in Toronto when I was a kid at 3 years old. Now at 48, the body can't take the cold as much, but my new wife of 3 years is from the Philippines and we are planning to go there in early January or February of 2016 because of the passing of her father 2weeks ago and we were unable to go at this time, and also for the first time to meet the family. If it all works on the the trip there we may live there part time when its winter here in Canada.
As for Mr. Andy and the guys who live in the south, I kinda envy you guys for the warmer weather .I guess its getting time to start to think of my retirement. I will have 20yrs at my current job next week, wow time flies!

Clem.

I came from the North ( New Jersey) so I know what snow is. This is why I stayed in the South. lol Having been back in NJ in 2013 in Jan., I know I will never live in the snow again. I'm a shorts and flip flop kinda guy 365 days a year.

The farthest north I've lived is Indianapolis and that was enough cold for me to come back to Nashville and stay

Come on down!!!! The nice thing about Florida is that with it being such a big state, there are many different climates. Northern FL is much different from S. FL. The coastal areas are different from the inland areas ( where I am.) So you can pick and choose what climate you prefer and live there.

I get the extremes of both ends here in NE Tennessee. Temps reach 95+ in the summer, and have hit subzero the past few winters. I much prefer cold than hot. I can only take off so much clothing before someone is offended

Did someone say snow how many people can truly say they are looking at snow in September, I can the divide don't have much left this year but this year it was a fluk

there's been times we had 4/5 feet of snow on the ground and it's in the 80's the next day , we get both of the best worlds,
but yes I will admit I do miss fishing Spanish mackerel , off the east coast
