I live where we have two seasons (spring & winter) but wouldn't think of going south. Just had another 5* of the white stuff this morning and expecting temperatures to go -7 by the weekend. I guess I just like living where nature is abundant and people are scarce.

Sorry about the snow. It's going to get cold (ha ha) here in Quartzsite for the next several days. Hi's in the 50's, lo's mid 30's. Just like the nice Autumn days in Kansas.

In 1998 I retired from the phone company in Chicago and headed south. We live at the north end of the tropics, around central Florida, can't head to much farther south from here. Tried to get into the state CG's in the Keys during January, no dice. Filled with snow-birds. Did get a spot for a week near Naples Fl in January. Better than nothing.... We follow the snow-birds NORTH for the summer (Blue Ridge Mts) June-October, after 2 weeks in Nashville TN, for the country music program in the beginning of June.

That's totally acceptable coming from someone on Michigan's UP. I love it up there, but only after fly season until the first frost - which isn't a lot of time. Some years ago I remember one of the towns on the west side had received more lake-effect snow than usual, and recorded more than 400 inches for the year. That's a reason to go south for me.

Okay, here's a choice. You can go to Grant Village CG in Yellowstone NP:http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...A#.Up6L08go4y4, or go south.

I hear you. Born and raised in Green Bay.

Got some land in Mercer, WI. For sale and now you need a snowmobile to get to it.

Lots of snow and cold temps in North Idaho. Glad I'm not there.
