Turning the question back to you ... what do you love/hate about living in New England? :D

I've never lived anywhere else but NE, so I can't really compare it to other places. I have lived in more than one place IN NE, though.

I love it here. I don't know if I could really call anywhere else home. I love the change of seasons (especially Autumn), the history, the cynical-yet-kind attitude that seems to pervade all of New England. I like the mountains of Western Massachusetts and Vermont and the coasts of Rhode Island and Maine. I fannishly love that Stephen King is a New Englander, as was Robert Frost. *g* And of course, I love the Red Sox with a love that's probably waay too eccentric. I love Boston generally, and I hope to someday be able to live there, at least for a short period of time.

I hate New England Winters. As much as I love the change of seasons, I don't much like the approach of winter. It's cold, wet, slushy, icky and did I mention cold? Also, NE is whiter, ethnically speaking, than many regions of the country. I wish we had more ethnic diversity (although we do have a fairly large contingency of Portuguese, Italian, Irish and French Canadian).

The good outweighs the bad, and unless I'm considering leaving the country (which I am, at least for a little while), you wont see me leaving New England.
