I would not argue about not having to shovel and snowblow snow anymore, that’s for sure!Gotta pay for services somehow. Income property, sales tax, gambling, pick your poison. Homestead exemptions help the retired with property tax, and the rest of the balance is up for debate nearly every year in the unicameral. So when you retire with a lower income, we can find a nice place for less if you are feeling crowded.
Moving there also has to also be about no snow and normally no -4 deg forecasts for the next month. We have neighbor friends who drive seasonally to AZ for that reason.
We have not had more than dusting of snow, and for every cold day, we’ve had two 55-60 deg days this “winter”. I have had my Mustang mostly out all this year without guilt beyond the dust on it.
