This is the time of the year when some of us Northern U.S. residents wish we lived somewhere else. Winter is not our favorite time of year. We could do without the snow, ice, cold, etc.

But there are many reasons why we stay, including our job, this is where our family lives, and that we love the Northeast U.S. for all other seasons of the year. We deal with far fewer extreme weather issues than many areas of the country.

If I could move out of the country, my choice could be Scotland. I've spent time there a few times turning the country, which is amazing. Maybe as a second choice, I'd choose Southern France.
