Think long and before you make the decision. The cost of living is very high. And you better like snow! And I dont mean playing in it. That evil white stuff makes your every day chores much more difficult. In our neck of the woods it is not unusual to see snow in June and September......so you may see snow 10 months of the year. And dont forget about the plowing bills, high heating, the wear and tear on your vehicle. $600 snow tires and road salt eating you car/truck. Double your comute times during winter. Unless you in town expect to drive along ways for ammenities, entertainment and even groceries.
I have had to shovel our roof 3 times this week....it SUCKS. I could go on. But you get the drift?
The summers are great but very short.
Have a nice day!
