We are having Rolling Black Outs here in Orange County, Southern California. Where I live and down the street the power is already out and my office where I am sitting right now is just waiting for it. There where alreadt trafic accidents today because traffic lights went out without any warning.
This Sucks for a wealthy, modern place like California. They never built enough power plants for how many people and business are here and moving here every year and than when they turned power into a privat sector it really went down the drain. Everyone just wanted to make quick $$$ and did not care about the future and now we are paying for it. And let me tell you we are paying high prices for everything just to be able to live here. I am so sick of this place!!! I want to be surrounded by nature and no more stress and freeways.

yes, for vacations, me spoiled, i got two huge supermarkets within 5 minutes drive, a river across the street, acres of woods behind me, a 14 cineplex 1 mile away, 4 shopping centers with everything i need within 5 miles (at reasonable prices), and 50 restaurants close by. i can rent dvd's. my modem always works. my kids have 4 playgrounds very close by. i think you get the picture.
ok, i got the cold thing, but there aint no hurricanes. i can drink water anywhere i want & never have to think. i rarely get food poisining. my heater works well, and i got a fireplace and a 4x4. warm summers and a pool out back. spring & fall here are beautiful. ever seen the fall colors in pennsylvania?

i love AC, i would visit ever year if frank let me, but i'll live here, thank you. this view is mine and mine alone, and not intended for anything less than stating my opinion.

I've seen the fall colors in Pa... many, many times. Absolutely stunning! But the thing I miss most about Pa. are those wonderful snowstorms! Yes, 12-24 inches! Digging my car out of the parking spot... shoveling the snow and ice from the pavement!! My car sliding up and down the freeway! Kids hitting me with snowballs!! Oh gosh do I miss it! laugh

And today it's only going to 78 here in Houston... hold on while I get another margarita!

Don't get me wrong,I'm sure PA is beautiful
We TEXANS just seem to be spoiled too. Just in a different way..I myself hate cold weather,but different strokes for different folks..What is so nice about it is we can all make jokes about other peoples likes and dislikes....

I was born in Michigan moved to California as a teen ager, and have been living in the Houston/Clear Lake area since 1965. Can't imagine living anywhere else! Belize is good to visit/party but it's hard to beat the good old USA for living.I hated the looooong, coooold winters up north!!

Hey! Hey!!
There are lots of Texans on here today.
DITTO!!!!! I live in a dinky coastal town in Texas, but I LOVE Texas. The weather on the coast is just about perfect. Always a breeze, almost never freezes, no snow, pleasant fall and winter. The summers are hot, but the breeze makes it tolerable, as well as the fishing and water sports. The weather here today is AWESOME. Makes me want to go out and play, but I have to work...

hi I'm new to the board but wanted to add my 2 cents worth! I lived in California for a while as a child, basicly spent all my summers in sacramento (grandparents) and also spent a year as an adult (in Fresno of all places) I HATE it now! I always felt crowded and that the people were not friendly. I now live in Wisconsin and love it here but Hate the Winters!!!! Today is the first day of spring and it finally feels warm (48 degrees) and I have spring fever like crazy! My advise to the person in california, Move to anywhere. I truely believe the quality of life is better in other parts of the country.
