It's -30 to -50 here in Vermont right now.

bleh.

Do NOT be discouraged!  Last winter and this winter are the worst Vermont has seen in several decades.

That CAN'T be right!  I have been told we are experiencing "global warming" by many people.

Yeah, probably by the same people who say that carbon dioxide, which kills no one, is worse than smog, which kills 200,000 people per year across the globe.  Under this logic, a Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Diesel Injection engine is good for the environment because of the higher gas milage, even though it gives off 50-times more smog than my Honda Insight.  :)

If there is global warming, I want to know what globe they are talking about.

Now, I'm at 1230 feet altitude at the moment, so I'm a bit above the snowline. I hear the lower elevations are snow-less and a bit warmer. However, it is so cold today that my Labrador does not like going outside just to pee. Labs were bred to LIKE the cold.
I normally have to keep her on a leash when we go out, else she will run off and have fun all day, get in trouble, etc. Today I had to keep her on a leash to keep her out long enough to do her business.

Here in Dover it was a balmy +1 degree F when I went out for lunch. The sun felt nice, though.  8)

And here in Fullerton, California, it's 62 degrees.  And folks around here consider that "cold".

Honestly, the weather in NH is the main reason people I know look at me like I'm crazy when I say I'm going to be moving to New Hampshire.  It's very difficult to leave this beautiful weather behind.  I know that NH has it's own beautiful seasons, but for someone accustomed to temperature ranges of 50 to 100, it's a frightening proposition.  Our blood is not prepared for the shock of a long, cold winter.  It will take quite a bit of time (I surmise) to adapt.

But liberty is worth it.

Larger Canadian cities have thought of the answer to winter. Most of their downtown buildings are connected by walkways and underground tunnels. It's very easy to spend an entire winter indoors without ever putting on a jacket.

No reason why the same thing couldn't happen in New Hampshire.

Well, we do dress warmly and stay inside as much as possible. Eventually you get used to it, esp if you get into winter sports like skiing and/or snowmobiling, hockey, etc.
Just crank up the stove and stay indoors.

I heard on the Weather channel that it was going to be colder than -100 with the wind cool on Mt. Washington (-25 in Manchester) today.  Is there any time of year when people can actually climb Mt. Washington?

I guess the FSP should put out most of its ads in the Spring, Summer, and Fall and do mostly planning in the Winter.  In Memphis it was 62 yesterday and the next couple days are 50 and 57 for highs.  Much of the country is even warmer.  I could not imagine moving to NH in the Winter.

If nothing else, the cold winter weather will hurt the FSP's ability to recruit from the large pool of poor urban anarchist that often move from city to city.

Sure, people climb Mount Washington throughout the year. Hiking can be done in the winter. One of the nicest hikes I ever did was a trek up Mount Major last February. The temperature was about -5 degrees that day, and windy too, but I had a great time anyway. Dress properly and you're good to go. (Those who do not dress properly often perish on Mt. Washington, though.)  :o

Having been born in MA and lived in RI and now NY, I am used to the seasons.  I enjoy them, though I do spend most of my days indoors in the coldest of the winter.  A walk to the post office with my dog is enough of the cold weather for me.  Seasons come and go fast, like life, but most of the year is very, very pleasant here in the Northeast!  If you care more about weather than freedom, don't move, or you could just wait for freedom to spread...maybe it will reach CA by 2050!

Nah, California will have fallen into the Pacific ocean by then. Or covered in 10 feet of volcanic ash when the state of Wyoming explodes.  ::)
