My parents were born plus raised way down South, plus that is all that they ever knew.
My dad refused to transfer up North when he had the opportunity about twenty years ago.
I was just a little girl at the time, so I did not understand why my dad did not want to move. All I knew was that there was snow up North where my buddy and I could have moved, plus I had never absolutely seen snow in person before. I wanted to transfer up North so badly. Well, I ended up going to university plus meeting the person of my dreams who just so happened to be a northerner. When my buddy and I finished our degrees, my buddy and I got married plus moved up north. He already had a job secured in the neighborhood that he grew up in, so it was apparent that my buddy and I had to live up North plus not down South with my family. I do miss my family, but I entirely cherish living up North. I cherish the cool weather. My spouse plus I have never used an air conditioner in our house. It is just not overheated enough to need an air conditioner even in the middle of the summer. I just put a couple of fans in the windows downstairs, plus it keeps the condo at a comfortable temperature. My pal and I do have to use the heating system about three-ninths of the year though because it gets quite freezing here, but I cherish it, plus I cherish the snow just as I thought that I would as a little girl.
