The only difference is we don't get anywhere near as many below zero or below -10 days here as we did back in OH. The trade-off comes in summer - OH isn't as humid in the summer.
You do have to remember Mass. is on the coast and when the breezes are coming in off the ocean, it is bringing the humidity with it.

Addie we aren't close to the coast. Probably a good 50 miles in any direction to hit sand. Lived 20 miles from Lake Erie with winds blowing across it from MI or Canada and I have as much humidity at our home here in the sticks as I had when I worked downtown and had a view of the lake all the way from my busstop to the office door. Was a real bear waiting for the bus in the winter too - miniskirts were in style and our office wasn't allowing women to wear pantsuits yet.

Weather is...weather. Ain't much you can do about it but complain, right?

Lake Erie in the winter? My sympathies.

Back 1969 I worked in one of those offices. Remember the pantsuits with the tunic tops? I wore one of those one day. When I was reminded that women weren't allowed to wear trousers in the office, I took off the trousers and just used the tunic top as a very short mini-dress. The boss changed the dress code that day.
