Best places to move to avoid snow

December 3rd, 2012 - 1:22 PM

Growing up, our school district would let kids out of school for 2-3 inches of snow. Seriously! If you live in states like Alaska, Colorado, New York, Michigan, Ohio, or any other state that gets tremendous amounts of snow, you’re probably rolling on the floor laughing. Okay, so 2-3 inches was a big deal for me, but if you’ve had enough of the large amounts of snow accumulating where you live, you just might be looking to move to a place where a chance of snow will never be in the forecast!


The 5 best places to move to avoid snow

If you don’t want to see one more snowflake, it sounds like you need to move to a place with absolutely no chance of snow. Here’s where you need to go:

 Los Angeles. The average temperature is 85 F in the summer, with low 40s in the winter, so now is virtually non-existent. If you want to play in the snow, you’ll have to go a few hours outside of LA to Lake Arrowhead.

 Miami. Snowfall has only occurred twice in recorded history, so it’s safe to say that you won’t be seeing much snow. It has only snowed twice in recorded history in Miami, in 1997 and 2010. The flurries were spotted by trained observers.

Did you know that on January 12, 2011, Florida was the only state in the U.S. that reported no snow on the ground? Even Hawaii had snow on Mauna Loa volcano!

Phoenix. Snow is common around the outskirts, but is very rare to see in the heart of the city. While you may have a dust storm or two in Phoenix, you’ll never have a snow storm to deal with.

San Diego. The last time any snow flake stuck was during 1967, when a powerful storm cooled down the city low enough to stick. The most recent snowfall in San Diego was in 1967.

Hawaii. Snow covers 13,000 ft. mountains in the state of Hawaii. To play in the snow, residents will travel up the mountains to build snowmen, sled, snowboard, and ski. Then they will fill their truck beds with snow and drive back down the mountain to play with the snow in the heat.   

Of course, you can’t predict what Mother Nature will do, but it’s safe to say that these cities above will give you sunny skies and warm temps throughout the year.

When you’re ready to move, call U-Pack to get you there! We hope you love your new snow-free city!
