For some, it is choosing the community in spite of the weather.
Where I'm at right now, it's sunny and dry days with highs just above 60. Nights dip down to low 20s, but I'm snug in bed. I don't mind it this cold, even like it. But this is my preferred lower threshold. I can tolerate snow and ice, but the key word is *tolerate*. Can't tolerate bugs at any temp, though.
