    back to Kentucky! [​IMG]

    This winter has been so brutal on me, I think I can stand the unbearable humidity.

    Montana is a wonderful state but I am not sure if working outside at -40F is any worse then +95 with 200% humidity in Kentucky.

    Decisions decisions.... [​IMG]

But it played heck with my sinus's as the humidity at -40 was zilch......... I'd rather be cold than live with the humidity.. and I never would have thought I would say that..

    It not that-40 is that cold...but when you factor in the wind...it can be unbearable.

    never thought of that though.. With the wind it would be even worse... As it is, I am generally a baby about cold and hardly ever travel outside in the winter (unless I have to in Michigan) and come out spring-fall.

    It is the 2nd of March and our high was +5F, with the wind it was -34F......

    Will winter ever end!?*

    That would be a no-brainer for me.

    There is not enough money on the planet to pay me to live in Montana in the wintertime. I think it would be a lovely place to visit, and a person would really have to be acclimated to that climate/environment to enjoy life there. I hear the local folks love it there.

    I lived in Louisiana a while and LOVED the humidity compared to the cold. I prefer the heat over the cold anyway, tho.

    I grew up in PA and joined the military. After being on Guam for 4 years, I ended up in North Dakota. I am actually used to it now, but this year the winter just seems to be dragging... I am going to blame it on Steve for posting pictures of his daffodils!
