Take lots of warm clothes and a big snow shovel with you for the winters.

i can offer some general suggestions on where to live if i know more about your work location.  in general be prepared to battle annoying traffic and long commute times. you are already used to the cold, so that in and of itself will not be shocking, but the state of the roads in winter, already narrow streets becoming narrower will lead to new adventures. welcome to new england. best is to find a place that is close to commuter rail/subway stations etc and avoid driving if at all that's possible.

if you feel comfortable posting here, i will reply here. if not send me a PM.

lexington is a great school district! wellesley, weston, and newton are other options with reasonable train/subway commutes into town.  all of them though are crazy expensive.  anything inside the 128 loop or just outside of it will be expensive. depends on what size of house you are looking for, how much you're willing to spend, and what you're willing to put up with. for slightly more affordable options with just as good schools look at wayland and sudbury in the metrowest area, and westwood and medfield south of town. the real estate market right now in boston seems to be balanced, neither a sellers' nor a buyers' market.

if you live in newton there is a green line subway that goes from the riverside station into downtown boston. that is most convenient. that way you're not taking a train and then switching to a subway. avoid driving if you can at all costs. it's very unpleasant. i do it, but i have no choice.
