Are one of the main reasons why people move to our area. The next reason is more and likely the temperature during winter when it’s 50 to 60° here it is will 5 to 10° below zero up north. The best part about our area is when it does drop into the 30 and 40 it is first thing in the morning and only lasts for a few hours or so then it starts to climb back up to the 50 and 60s by mid afternoon most of the time. A lot people find it funny that you see the locals in long pants and jackets while the people from up north are in t-shirts and short pants and going to the beaches. If you like the idea of living here Please let Tamure assist you in finding your dream home. You will not be sorry.
