    Do you change them out in summer?

    Indeed. Totally surprised how long it did last

    In mid Spring put on summer wheels and from mid Autumn it's winter tires. I have both sets on separate rims, so I only need to swap the wheels, don't have to put on and off actual tires.

    An expense I never considered living in a cold climate.

    It's not cold climate, it's variable climate :) And you make it sound like I live in Antarctica :D
    There's summer with it's heat, then there's autumn with it beautiful golden leaves, a winter with its all white coat, and spring with its singing birds :)
    Although last winter was kinda crap, no snow whatsoever...

    Where I live it's a law to have tires changed for winter, but I think there are some countries which don't have this requirement, even though their climate is more harsh than ours...

    I as going to argue where it's cold it's variable, or if it's not, you still need winter tires. But if it's always cold, you wouldn't need summer tires now would you? So damn it, you're right this one time...:D

    Doesn't it get boring living in warm climate for you?

    Of course. Even living in this temperate/humidity climate that's the envy of the world, yes I would like more climate variations and seasonal transitions. And yes, because of weather changes we are having more less than pleasant hotter days. Still no harsh conditions to contend with like so many other places in the world. The key here is to connect to the ocean and beach life to go along with this weather. Most of my life I was going just that, but here where I live now I've lost that value that goes along with this kind of weather. So honestly, I would love to experience more changes, and how I do love the rain.

    Maybe you should relocate to North Carolina then :) Quite a bit of rain over the last few weeks and it's a really nice 30-something-degrees at the moment.

    Virginia isn't much better lately. I don't think I've had a single weekend in the past month and a half where I haven't had to deliver in the rain.

    Cost of living is low and suppose it's pretty enough, but I wouldn't call the weather a positive attribute, would you? Are the places and people interesting enough? I guess when you get older these things matter less. Vinegar based BBQ sauce so you've got that going for you. Thom Tillis tho...:confused:
