My fiancee  would never want to move to a cold and snowy climate.

If she would then I would most likely  move to the adirondacks.  

I spoke to a cop in Cooperstown and he said that there  are about 10 cops up there. 

The price of living is unbelievable.  I priced a 2 family house up there for 99k.

2 family house here in NYC  is around 600k-700k.

Where? That's a bargain.

Okay maybe 700k-800k

Idk, before moving to Florida a couple years ago my parents sold a 2 family in really rough shape for $780k. Really rough shape....new owners completely gutted it and redid from top to bottom inside and out. I cant even imagine what they're into it all together.

It's insane

You have to be rich to afford the houses.

On my block in historic Cobble Hill ( some of us old timers still refer to it as postal zip 10031, Red Hook) a row house ( I don’t refer to them as federal brownstones ) was sold for over six million. A smaller building at the end of the block went clearance last year at 2.3 million. The new owners then gut the place and put in as much or more than they paid for it. All that and you still have no parking. The area seems to attract celebrities. My daughters tell me about the famous who live on, near and around. I know the nice folks in the Kane Street Synagogue next to me and the fine family on the other side. I have a nodding acquaintance with folks up and down the block, other  than that I am happy to preserve their anonymity, as I am my own. Anthony, Uncle is right, in 112 neighborhoods where the base row house price is seven figures, I still wouldn’t be comfortable walking at night unless I was dressed in your work clothes. As always ....

I'm a sales rep and travel all over the state, there are some unbelievably affordable spots and many of them are in serious snow zones. The hill towns south of Buffalo and the western Fingerlakes towns south of Rochester are just plain cheap places to live. Problem is persistently wet or white and grey and windy conditions are the norm but the good days are superb. Big snow in the winter making for great skiing and fat biking so if you can handle the cold you're good and beautiful continental influenced days in the summer with incredible skiing, mountain biking and fishing. The people that are making a living out there really seem to enjoy where they live, unfortunately that's getting harder and harder to do.

No, wound up turning down that job as my wife couldn’t pull the trigger on moving to Maine.  I’m in financial services and have been fortunate but still envious of the climate and lifestyle up there.  You in law enforcement?

Nope.   I'm a criminal.

Chris, that was my greatest snow squall ever- it snowed here at varying rates for 7 hours, from 4 PM to 11 PM and all the roads were snow covered!  Have you ever seen anything like this before?

Is such a thing even possible?!

well all the roads I could see with my eyes ;-) lol

the funny thing was that it would snow hard for like 20 minutes then cars would come through and you could see tracks, and then another snow squall would come through and bury the tracks again, this happened several times between 4 PM and 11 PM, the last one started around 10, snowed hard to about 10:30 and lower rates of intensity after that until it petered out by 11.

The first one that everyone was talking about wasn't the one that  laid the snow cover on the roads though, it was the ones that came after that.  I guess it was still too warm when the first one came through?

On vacation with some leisure time to scroll through the channels.  Stopped at TWC's AMHQ.  Listening to the hosts talk about travel conditions across the country, region by region, for minutes on end, reminds me of a kid stretching 50 words of content into a 250 word essay.

Anyone finance a car ? I'm thinking of doing it for my next car.

Good strategy is to get financing from someplace other than the car dealer - like a credit union.  The car dealers always try to make money on the financing.
