You obviously don't know N.H. weather! I did my undergrad time there and still go back to that state to see old, dear friends.Kentucky weather is a walk in paradise,compared to winter (which often starts in early OCTOBER)in New Hampshire.
And I bet you have a Kentucky accent.Anyone, ANYONE,without one of the regional N.H. accents is suspect,by the natives.Once they accept you, they can be as cold as a January night on top of Mt.Washington.
Then,there's food.Oh yes, and if you're one of FR's regonalists, who keeps trying to re-fight the Civil War,claiming that " THE SOUTH SHALL RISE AGAIN",you'll be about as welcome there,as the black Mayflies are. :-)

(The darkness will come. It will find you,and it will scare you like you've never been scared before.)
Now, wait a minute. New Hampshire weather isn't all that bad. I have been here about eight years, and the winters are much better than the ones in the Midwest. The temperature and humidity here are very tolerable compared to when I lived in the South.
I'm not sure what you mean about the food. We have a lot of small venues for grocery shopping where you can get excellent produce, a lot of it locally grown in the late summer/fall. There are many pick-your-own berry farms and apple orchards, as well. The place abounds with great restaurants.
It's getting harder and harder to find a New Hampshire native, and I definitely did not experience the cold reception so many people describe. I have more friends here than I have had anywhere I have lived. I found South Carolina, for instance, the worst place I have lived for welcoming outsiders who have a regional accent.
