Ever tried moving in the Winter in Boston? I can tell you this much...it's not highly advisable if you can avoid it. Not only are your fingers going to freeze carrying furniture up and down the stairs, but parking is an absolute nightmare. The Almanac.com predicts a wet winter ahead, so it'll take some gloves and some waterproof clothing to make the move more bearable.
Be smart (and stay warm), plan your apartment search by using available resources. Check your local paper and/or mycityapartment.com to find apartments for rent in Boston before you set out for that daring move. There, you can find apartments with heat included, so that you won't have to go beyond your budget every time you crank up that heat.
Have an interesting winter move story to share?
