  • Cool. I love my home in the Pacific Northwest but the 7 straight months of clouds/rain/wind gets very, very old. Whether it's because I want to go fly or stare at a cool celestial event at night, sometimes it just sucks.

  • I love the PNW. However, after 31 years of gloom, I needed to get into happier, and sunnier climates, and I love where I'm at now. I can ride my motorcycle practically every day in dry conditions. There are trade offs, but for me I look back fondly of my memories of my time there with no regrets of moving.

    I'm coming for a game and a week this early September and I want to see all my friends. As soon as the schedule is announced, I will know when it will be.

  • Now into my midlife, I totally get why older people move South. I wouldn't rule out moving somewhere warmer in my golden years even though the PNW will always be "home".

    Nice to see you can joke about that now Rocket. Tough times, though.

    Indeed! One day Rocket and I will be driving Lamborghini's. Just ask him! It will happen one day. (In our dreams count, right?)

  • The ONLY thing I miss, living here in Texas, is the topography of the PNW.

    To gaze out one's kitchen window to see a snow-capped mountain range, or to look down a slope to see lush grassy fields leading to a driftwood-laden beach, or to drive through a curvy highway surrounded by pointed evergreen trees...

    Oh, and to taste a freshly-harvested Dungeoness crab cooked in Puget Sound salt water...

    Y'all need to quit your bitchin.
