I agree that is cold for TN.
But then again it is colder here, today high 4 above zero and 25-35 MPH winds and had 6" of snow last night, I have had my stock tank heater plugged in since the 1st. Of Nov. Here in Wisconsin, would you like to trade places?
I am ready to move SOUTH !!!!!!!!
I moved south from the Philly area of PA to get out of the snow and we just entered a cold snap. The difference is that it's unusual and not the norm. It's low 20's this morning and I have to go out in a few to feed the animals - brrrrrr.
On the other hand, it's going to be in the low 60's for the weekend!! It's still the first week of January but by February, the weather starts to change for the better.
I am not sure if one ever gets use to the cold, I was born & raised here, lived in MN. For 13 yrs. But colder here, the only thing that has really changed over the years is we do not get the snow like we use to.
I spent 4 mos. On GA. 2yrs. Ago that took some getting use to (Heat & Humidity) but I'd take the heat anytime over the cold.
I drive truck also, deliver new trucks all over the U.S. And Canada and have been to every state encluding Alaska and I would pick TN. To live I think that state has it all, kinda like WI. Except for the weather.
I almost took my camper to MS. For the winter, but hard to find someone to look after the critters that you can trust, so I'll wait a couple more years and should only have the horses left to move, my last 2 dogs & wolf are all 13 yrs. Old and won't be with me much longer, sad to say.
I'd keep my farm here (paid for) and look for 20-40 acres there, that way I'd have the best of both places when I retire, maybe in the next 3 yrs. All depends on the health, I should have retired in 2011 but as long as I can work what the heck.
Delivered quite afew trucks to a dealer in Saskatoon this past summer and you also got alot of rain up there, but beautiful country, just to cold for me.
I am heading SOUTH in fact just turned down a Sacramento for a Nashville, don't like Donners Pass this time of year.
