Well, each to their own, but my observation is that people leave CT/NY metro on retirement:
a) for the weather
b) to cash in on home values

Personally find many things that culturally the NE states offer that is missing elsewhere...so if I get to that point, maybe b) will apply and perhaps I'll head to VT or a small apartment in Boston :-)

Then it'll be VT, because a small apartment in Boston won't be any cheaper than your digs in CT

Excellent point :-)

But at least I wouldn't need to do my own snow blowing, and might even be able to walk a few places....between April and November at least...OK, so perhaps I'll end up retiring to AZ or FL after all...

Because I'm absolutely crap with money so having $500 or $1000 available when an annual bill is due would be unlikely. If it's taken out of my wages I don't notice it.
