Hi, Bob spent his entire life in a place without weather, time for a change. Born in Long Beach California, spent entire life there except for a few months in Texas and the rest of my two years in the Army in Germany, and now in Lakewood. [three blocks away from Long Beach] People that I worked with said that it would be miserable to live where it snows. I told them as long as I don't have to shovel 20"s of snow everyday to get to work, I have no problem with it. [I don't have to work anymore] I drive all year long with my air conditioner running in my cars. I can eat ice cream faster than anyone who I know.

Bob, I am pretty good at finding places where it snows 20" a couple of times a week and the weather is "interesting". Four seasons to keep you active. A big chain saw to cut firewood. A big truck with 4WD so you don't have to shovel your driveway (plow optional, mud and snow tires mandatory). Lots of snow brushes, winter blades, and ice scrapers. Different outfits for each season. People always saying "it didn't used to be like this" or "we never had a storm like that!" or "it's always cloudy here" or "it hasn't rained in 3 months", or, the dreaded forecast: "golf ball size hail possible". As we age, we need more stimulating weather and to become wise in the ways of winterizing. If you move to somewhere where the weather is interesting, you can always travel elsewhere and when they complain about the weather, you can one-up them without breaking a sweat.

By the way, our house is for sale and the winters are mild for Colorado. Good place to practice winter. 30 amp RV plug installed.

For folks with or thinking of electric heaters as a supplement...check the reviews on Consumer Reports. Any heater using 120v is UL limited to 1500watts output, not very much. Heater design is important. I have been using [2] 29.95 DeLonghi heater for a couple of years and they work fine. There's no need to be spending a couple of hundred bucks.
