But the way things are going here politically, I may have to join you.
Just don’t know if I could ever get my temp redline over 85; dry heat or not, no matter.
As for snow, forget about.

Maybe I will try to stick it out in the land of fruits and nuts just a bit longer.
Wish me luck.
Sure doesn't look good with the earthquakes lately. A big one might be just around the corner.

After spending most of my life split between southern California and Northern California, I know the petrifying fear instilled by that first sensation of ground movement knowing you may be in the Pacific in seconds. Don't miss that one bit. We don't really have any big ones here in Upstate NY, well maybe that opposite sex one but one has to admit, they do come with an upside, the big question is how long it lasts...

For some reason the actual earthquakes have never bothered me, but the aftermath was something one just has to deal with. I was working in Los Angeles the night of the Northridge quake, felt it for sure but it didn't cause me any anxiety. Any maybe two or three other quakes happened while I lived there.

Yeah, that upside is the only thing going for them, otherwise I'm staying far away. And the rest don't bother me. I think natural disasters are afraid of me, I can't buy one to come visit.

I was in a refinery in the Bay Area (Shell Martinez) when Loma Prieta hit. Not a good place to be but, thankfully, little issue. North Idaho today. Should be about 10 degrees higher.
