When you get older typically you move south and get a beach house.
You then are called a snowbird.
You stay in your cooler area half the year and then go south when it gets cool. My wife and I are the opposite. What are we then? Beach birds? The two of us have never liked heat. Our kids moved south like 100 years ago and we followed. We stick around as long as we can to help our kids and babysit the grandkids. After a bit though, we need to get away from the heat. The two of us actually have a house in Libertyville Illinois. We have a couple of friends that live there and the two of us have always liked Illinois. There are plenty of things to do for senior citizens. Tons of bus trips get arranged to see the state and sometimes go to the casino. The two of us really stick around for the weather. It is nice getting to experience the actual cold. We have always enjoyed snow as well. We don’t really go outside too much so why would ice and windchill bother us? As long as we have good heating, there isn’t a problem at all. My wife got the HVAC contractor to install a gas fireplace in the dining room and then we have our own electric heater in the bedroom for added warmth if need be. It works perfectly and looks very nice. There is something so soothing about drinking hot chocolate, sitting by a fire and watching the snow outdoors.
