I'd take the cold any time over this. I can bundle up and walk around in the cold.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Maybe a poll would be helpful...

no snowflake on the street goes unpunished, the sidewalks are plowed for you so you don't have to shovel.

If 90+ with humidity thick enough to cut isn't bad then what is?
And the daily several hourlong afternoon downpour isn't fun either.

Housing may be cheap as compared to NY or LA , but I would not consider it reasonable....
I guess we have different definitions of reasonable

you can get a small (1100 sqft. house, 3700 sqft. lot) 3 bed 2 bath in PP for around 200k. sounds pretty reasonable
(and if you're willing to move a block away (Ridgeway) from the existing frum blocks, you can get a bigger house and lot for that price)

now, I'm in the process of helping someone look for a house there.
You can check zillow, but a lot of the listings are outdated (already in contract, though the prices are some what accurate)
 There is a larger house (1500 sqft not incluing the kitchen for some reason) on 6000 block of Monticello asking 375k will probably go for 350k on a mostly frum block.

August. 95+ with worse humidity.
Today is a nice day for Florida summer standards.

Being able to get away during the winter and get a break from the cold makes even very cold winters a lot more tolerable.
