Fantastic spring and fall weather, stifling heat and humidity in mid summer to some pretty cold weather in mid winter.
Chesapeake is a good central location for 9 months. Can go up to New England and Long Island in the summer to escape the heat amd most of the hurricanes, Then come back in the Fall and in Novemeber head for Florida and the Carribean after the names storms are not as big a threat
Chessie is a great place......so are the Great Lakes and the PNW.
