I wasn't saying that the winter would be a problem for the original poster. It's just a problem for me. I'll be back in Richmond around Thanksgiving. It should be rather pleasant at that time of the year.
Virginia is winter land when you talk to someone that lives in Central Florida. I went to the Virginia/Virginia Tech game last year in Blacksburg and had to deal with temperatures in the 20s and freezing rain. At home, it was a balmy 80. Now, you see why I haven't move back to Virginia...
