I have to agree. In addition, for some of us, it's not a matter of comfort,
it's a matter of health. For instance, in my family, there are two people
who, if living in a northern tier climate, or a high humidity climate (like
the Carolinas or Georgia) have no choice but to live within 30 minutes (max)
of the nearest emergency room. On the other hand, we have no trouble living
in a climate like that of New Mexico or Arizona. It's not a question of
comfort or preference - it's a question of living where the climate is not
going to kill us.
