I've been tempted to purchase a piece of land in the middle of nowhere but the cold weather and snow would just make me want to die. When I was in Europe the weather was constantly bad. No matter how busy I kept myself, I felt like the world was collapsing. Bad weather is psychologically crushing. Whoever finds a way to control the weather or build dome cities will make for the most drastic quality of life change in human history. Meanwhile, I'll just continue to complain about tourists.
Bad weather is simply a matter of perspective. I love the fall, and I love winter right up until Xmas. After that I'm done with it and want the heat and sunshine again. I've never lived anywhere where it's been significantly hot and sunny all year round but I'd imagine that can become a grind too a change is nice.
The only place I ever found it to be a real problem was when I lived in Vancouver. It's really like 6 months of cold rain. It's pretty insane. When the sun actually came out it was like mana from heaven.
I dunno, I'm torn. I hate the cold and winter on the whole and love heat and sun, but I do like the changing seasons at least summer going into fall then winter. Right now this last polar vortex BS is pissing me off too as I'm so ready for sun and heat right now it's not funny. I'm building some raised garden beds and possibly a greenhouse this year and I just want to get on with it.
