That's why I hope for the longshot, Delaware, it's the warmest. ;-)
Having resided in Memphis for the last half-dozen years, I sympathize with you. My skis have mostly gathered dust and rust in my storage shed over those past few years though, and I'm looking forward to getting some use out of them again. I expect there'll be less of a problem with the kudzu in the chosen Free State, too. That too will be an improvement.
Those nice warm comfy places are where many of the drones and parasites have settled in their pismire warrens. I can handle some occasional harsh weather to be rid of most of them.
