Weather and climate are probably the most important factors for me when it comes time to choose the best place to live. Having grown up with the long, cold Canadian winters, now that I'm older and can choose where I want to live, I try very hard to make sure I don't ever have to shovel snow again.

When deciding where to live, think about the kind of activities you enjoy and how much weather will affect those activities. Are you a hot weather person, cold weather person or do you like a moderate, year-round spring-like climate? What about the amount of rain or snow you can withstand? Can you tolerate weeks of heat with no rain?

All these questions will help determine your perfect climate - year-round.
