With the holidays behind us and visions of gumdrops a thing of the past, staying up north for the next several months just might not be worth it. Especially if you Snowbirds have a property to retreat to down south.
Unfortunately, when the weather can be unpredictable and with gas prices so high, actually getting to your oasis down south can be quite the hassle. Which is exactly what Cars Transport is here for. We aim to get your vehicle where you want it, when you want it. So all you have to do is hop on a flight, and meet your car where it’s most convenient for you.
So whether you plan to ship your car to another state, or brave the frozen tundra that is the north, we’ve come up with some reasons why winter weather may not be worth it; as well as reasons why moving south for a few months may just be the best move.
Why Cold Winters Are Just Not Worth It
Reason 1: Lack of Vitamin D
A lack of vitamin D and exposure to sunlight can cause depression, fatigue, muscle soreness, and other symptoms that relate to overall feelings of weakness. So if you don’t get to make it down south this winter, at least get yourself a sunlamp.
Reason 2: Irritable, dry skin
Winters are dry. Your heaters are constantly working to keep you from freezing, sucking what little moisture is left in the air. The dry air causes your skin to become flaky and cracked. Make sure to arm yourself with a humidifier and lotion if you’re not planning on migrating to avoid looking like a mummy.
Reason 3: Frostbite
As if lack of sunlight and dry skin weren’t bad enough, now we have to deal with frostbite. Despite this funny cartoon, frostbite isn’t a joke. In severe cases, you can lose a limb if not treated properly and in a timely manner. So make sure you stay bundled up.
Now maybe these winter side effects seem a little more trouble than they’re worth, especially when the hardest part about getting to a warm and sunny retreat this winter is filling out our free quote calculator online, here’s a secret: it’s not hard at all.
But if you need further convincing, here are three reasons that moving down south for the winter may be better than braving the cold.
Why Moving Down South in the Winter Is Worth It
Reason 1: Longer Days
Don’t like that it gets dark around 4:00pm everyday? Think that it would be nice to not feel like it’s time for bed in the afternoon? The further south, the longer the days. This is good because more sunlight gives you more energy, and the longer days, provide a healthy dose of that vitamin D we crave. Plus, how could you get tired of a sunset like this?
Reason 2: Safer Travel
Not only is all that salt and snow bad for your boots as well as your tires, but cold weather and cars just don’t play nice all around. You’ll never have to worry about your car not starting because it’s too cold. And most importantly, you can drive with a little more peace of mind, knowing that there won’t be any black ice, slippery surprises.
Reason 3: Save Money On Winter Clothes
Every winter it seems like we need to buy something else to stay warm. Whether it’s a new, warmer pair of gloves, boots, or a coat. These things are expensive. But when you have no need for them because you’ve moved down south, you save a good bit of money that you can now spend elsewhere, like…shipping your car…or you know, buying that boat you’ve always dreamed of.
So next time you think it’s not worth it to travel down a few states to stave off the cold because you think you can brave it, take a look at our list and then decide, because we would all be down there right with you if we could.
