That's what my friend from Texas used to tell people, when they were surprised that she liked the Canadian climate.

Thus my caution to close the front window curtains.

Just for the record, I'm a California boy and I'm not suited for colder or hotter climates. No Chicago and no Phoenix in my future...

No matter what anybody can say about Southern California, it has one of the greatest climates in the nation, in terms of year round moderate weather and temperatures, and lack of hurricanes. Although we do have earthquakes....

Everybody has an attachment to where they live (or lived) and it's the best for them.

While you like the year-round moderate temps, I enjoy the changes of seasons. To each his own.

Did the earthquake trip when I visited me mother in LA as she was attending the "baskin robbin cake school". (a must do after signing the contract with corporate). I think I was 8 or so. Earthquakes suck; you can't hide from them. I've been in a few tornados and let me tell you, give me 5 or a 6 on the the scale any day above a tornado. It's all terrifying, though.
