HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE SNOW IN WESTERN KENTUCKY? NO? THEN LISTEN UP!
Where we live in Western Kentucky near Kentucky Lake, we only average about 10 inches of snow per year! We enjoy 4 seasons (it would get boring having the same weather all the time, wouldn't it?) but the winters are mild. In the past I have lived in Northern Illinois, Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota so I really appreciate the weather here. Usually when we get some snow it only lasts a day or two. It's enough for the children to get out of school and get cold and wet playing outside.
When I tell local people about the winter activities up north such as ice fishing, skiing and especially driving vehicles on the lakes they can hardly believe me. Yes, those are fond memories that I'm glad I participated in, but I'm also glad I was much younger. I really don't think I would like it at my advanced years. Shoot, I might fall and break a hip!
For more weather information you could check out msn.com or city-data.com. City-Data also has census information which includes employment, income, and household statistics as well as average temperatures and precipitation for each month.
However, wherever you move don't rely on statistics alone. Make sure you contact a local REALTOR® who is familiar with the local climate; whether it's the weather climate or whether it's the real estate market climate, they are very well qualified to answer your questions.
