Does Anyone Live In Wisconsin?

Well, we are moving yet again and not into a house like we wanted. My brother is being transferred to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He brother works for an apartment management company and the company lost the contract with our current apartment complex. The new company will take over December 1st. We have to move around the 30th of November and it is all happening too fast for us. Whenever we have moved in the past, we always knew way in advance. We are both trying to stay positive but are not really looking forward to moving so far north. I am not a fan of the cold anyway and although I do like snow, I know that Wisconsin gets a ton of it. But, we are trying to have a positive attitude about all of this especially since we have no choice if my brother wants to keep his job. So, does anyone here live in Wisconsin or has anyone ever visited Wisconsin? We are trying to get an idea of what to expect so any input would be appreciated. I lived in Wisconsin briefly when I was a child but I remember nothing about it.

Maybe you should check the website of the town where you are going to move to. YOu will find a lot of phone numbers where you could get some more info.

Wow, moving again? This is evidently not good news that you want to hear....I'm sorry you and your brother have to put up with it. I know that Wisconsin is an industrial place, nothing more. Maybe searching the net and seeing its official pages would help. Just move with the flow and try to remain calm headed and positive, everything will work out, sure. Don't be too upset.

No, it's not good news for us. Neither of us have been that far north before and I'm not looking forward to below zero temps.

My impression of Wisconsin is positive. It has that Midwestern friendly sensibility (which I miss, living in California). But the accent is slightly unusual, and quite distinctive. Like Fargo with a dash of Brooklyn. I had a girlfriend from the Milwaukee suburbs. Pretty, bright, and sweet.

We will probably stick out like sore thumbs because we were both raised in the south. I have a southern drawl that is also quite distinctive...lol.

@TheHorse I hope so. I'm saying prayers because there is a slight chance that we might not have to move after all. We will know for sure today.

What we really dislike is it will affect our Thanksgiving. It's kind of hard to have Thanksgiving when you are trying to pack to move.

@simone10 I understand that completely. It spoils the holiday season and all the activities associated with it.

@sofssu Yes it does. I am hoping that my brother gets that call we will be waiting for today.

My sister in law and her husband live there. It can be a winter like here in Michigan. lots of snow. But from what I hear it's a good state. Lots to see. At least he gets to keep his job so that's a good thing.

We found out that we might be able to stay but I'm not counting on it until we know more on Monday. I have heard that they do get a lot of snow and temps can get below zero.

I lived in the Mpls St. Paul area when I was a kid- went over to Wisconsin in the summer for floating down the Apple river. Cold. Yep. Very cold winters. Short summers. Green.

It doesn't seem like 5 minutes since you moved to where you are now, does it? Good luck with the move.

It sure does seem that way. We just moved from Memphis to Jonesboro in February.

I was born there and now I'm in Alabama. For myself, the only good thing I can say about Wisconsin is the fall with the leaves turning. Very pretty. You may like it though. Good luck with the move and glad your brother still has a job.

I don't like cold weather and although I do like snow, not as much as they get.

Sorry I can't help you but I do hope the move goes well. It is usually a bit stressful to have to move so all the best.

One of our BB friends is originally from Wisconsin but lives in Charleston, SC now. I am not sure she has come over here. Her name is Betty and she is a teacher. I visited Milwaukee once and it has lots of great things to see and do. I think it will be fun but a much different climate.

Yes, that is what I am afraid of...the big difference in the climate.

I visited Wisconsin once, but it was during the summer and not very close to Milwaukee. You can try looking up their weather on the internet, some sites will show what the average weather for any month is. Good luck with the move and try not to stress out too much about it. I've moved a lot in the past, so I know that it won't be easy to not stress about it too much.

We have moved quite a bit over the last few years and I hate it. But this move is the first time I have been really upset about moving to a new place.

It really does suck as we were both born and raised in the south. We do get cold weather and snow here but no where near as much as up north.
