I came down here the first weekend in January, the one where it snowed, a lot. That, combined with people in CT don't know how to plow or drive on roads, made for a very long trip, about 20 hours to get here.
Overall I love it, the wide open spaces and mountains breaks up the monotony of the Boston area. I love being able to go for a run and have cows and horses able to come right over to me, its peaceful here, haha. Weather is a bit better than up north, we've seen a few 50 degree days down here, and then some pretty cold days too. The whole western part of the state shuts down if it snows more than half an inch, which is hilarious.
I'm down here till mid-april, then heading back north for a couple of weeks, then heading on to my duty station from there. we should try and get something together during that time.
