Re: Wish I was in California today

[ Edited ]

Guess I'm in the minority. No way would I live in California, too congested, poor air quality, mudslides, wild fires, earthquakes. 

Too many govenment regulations.

I would still be in Minnesota if it wasn't for the long winters. I have no problem with the cold, just got tired of dealing with snow.

Re: Wish I was in California today

@QualityGal , I wish you were too! I’ve lived in CA. all my life, the last 20 years in San Diego. While our State has problems/issues, as most other states do, I wouldn’t live anywhere else! The weather today is cool, overcast, with a slight chance of rain. We’re warming up to the 70’s later in the week. IMO, the good outweighs the bad...we feel blessed!

That's ok. I would never want to be in Michigan. Too cold. Too much snow. Too short a warm season. 

 

Thank goodness we have choices where we choose to live and visit

The last time I was in California there was an earthquake that started in the next town over.  I was on a plane back home the next morning & never looked back. Have not been back since.

Re: Wish I was in California today

I was born in Pasadena.  Three great-grandparents, two sets of grandparents and many cousins lived there.  Both of my parents were raised there.  We moved to the beach in Orange County when I was in third grade.  We were surrounded by orange groves, strawberry fields, etc.  Nothing smells better than orange blossoms.  I loved it there but too many people moved there from other states and it became very crowded so in 1991 I moved on to the Seattle area and ironically that is happening here now.  At least I have never lived in a depressed area! lol

 

I still miss some aspects of Los Angeles (Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theater, shopping) still and the weather in January!

@QualityGal 

 

Beautiful weather here the last few days. As for California? Not a place that I ever plan on being.
