Moving to a state with a different climate can be very exciting, especially if you have always lived in the same state. Whether you are moving to a cooler state or a warmer state, Transcendent Moving & Storage would like to prepare you for your move by informing you of some helpful tips when moving to a different climate.
Moving to a Cooler State
If you have spent most of your life in a state with a warm climate year round, moving further north to a state with a more pronounced seasonal change can be a big adjustment.
Most northern states experience beautiful, warm summers with all of the perks of enjoying outdoor activities and exploring nature. Fall is a spectacular time of year with tree foliage changing to yellows, oranges, and reds. Winter, albeit cold, can also be very scenic. If you have rarely experienced snow before, you will be amazed at how breathtaking a fresh snowfall can be. Another perk to the winter season is enjoying sports that you couldn’t normally experience, such as snow skiing, ice skating, or snowboarding. This season is also perfect for hot chocolate and sitting by the fireplace. After a long winter, there is nothing quite like watching the earth come back to life during the spring. When the sun comes out and the plants start to bloom, you will want to break out that bathing suit right away.
Although most of the year in a northern state is enjoyable, we must make mention that winter is not to be taken lightly. When the temperature drops and the snow keeps coming, you should be prepared. Before your move, make sure you have the proper warm clothing. Our next biggest piece of advice: Invest in a snow shovel/snow blower and a car ice scraper. Make sure that your electronic devices can handle the cold weather by checking their manuals prior to your move.
Moving to a Warmer State
As for the warmer states, hot climates are the norm. If you are ready to enjoy the sun year round, this may be the move for you.
There are many perks of living in a warm state. For starters, the sun offers more opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle. Vitamin D is synthesized in the human body through the sun, and is important for your well-being, physically and mentally. Enjoying the comfortable temperatures year round offers people more room and opportunities to exercise more often, play sports, and enjoy nature. In addition, if you have children, would you rather have them inside playing video games or out in the nice weather playing in the yard or out at a playground? These are just a few of the great things about living in a warm climate.
Also, if you are used to having snow during the holiday season, you will be pleased to realize you may not have a need for your shovel any longer. When you move to a warm state, you will find you’re free to rid yourself of certain clothing that you will no longer have use for as well, like your huge winter coats and snow boots.
