Weather here or there

This is the weather this afternoon around 3 PM today from near where I used to live "up north":

Temperature: -9.0°C (16°F)
Dewpoint: -12.0°C (10°F) [RH = 79%]
Pressure (altimeter): 30.37 inches Hg (1028.5 mb)
Winds: from the NE (40 degrees) at 3 MPH (3 knots; 1.6 m/s)
Visibility: 0.50 miles (0.80 km)
Ceiling: indefinite ceiling with vertical visibility of 300 feet AGL
Clouds: obscured sky
Weather: SN (snow)

This is what the weather was doing where I live now at around the same time:

Temperature: 16.7°C (62°F)
Dewpoint: 5.6°C (42°F) [RH = 48%]
Pressure (altimeter): 30.28 inches Hg (1025.5 mb)
[Sea-level pressure: 1025.7 mb]
Winds: from the SSE (160 degrees) at 10 MPH (9 knots; 4.7 m/s)
Visibility: 10 or more miles (16+ km)
Ceiling: 25000 feet AGL
Clouds: broken clouds at 25000 feet AGL
Weather: no significant weather observed at this time

Still a little cool here, but I'll take it any day over Wisconsin. I do miss a few things about my former state, don't get me wrong...but the winter weather is not one of them.

I'm going to say cheese is one of the things you miss...and also maybe sausages.

Marvo - I miss the cheese, the lack of traffic jams, the beer, and the lower cost of living. I also kind of miss my gym there. However, I definitely don't miss my old job...and I was never really a huge sausage fan.
