"Ah, but Saratoga Springs is warm in the winter. Lake George is an hour north of here and higher altitude.

Lots of great eateries and the downtown is warm and lively through those cold winter nights.

The Saratoga Spa park has cross country skiing and ice skating!

Fun winters.

Hey Donna...I spent 4 years in Troy NY. It got down to 25 below zero..and Troy NY is 40 miles south of Saratoga Springs.

It's friggin' cold up that way in winter..days are 'short' due to the northern latitude.

Yeah, downtown Saratoga is 'active' if you can get there in the ice and snow......and find a place to park (hard).....

My parents/mom always bugged out before the snow started to fly in November.

Heck, I remember snow storms in October up that way..and May is still barely 'spring' up that way.

You can have it!

And you better check your geography - Lake George is at about 353 feet AMSL at the Lake Shore where my sister's house is. Saratoga Springs is at 300 feet. Wow....50 foot difference in elevation.

You can have your 8 months of cold, miserable, dark winters with snow and ice and sub zero temps.The older I get the less and less I like winters.
