On days like today, the climate makes me wonder why I live here. This heat is oppressive.

To the temperate regions next week, however!

It's hot just about everywhere in this nation these days. Have you seen the temps for New York these days and lets not get into the humidity and heat index levels?

I think that the weather and great areas and beautiful greenery are NOT the reasons for me to move here. The number one factor for moving should always be the economy(jobs). Everyone always saying the greenery here is hard to find anywhere but greenery and great areas doesn't pay the light bill. It looks like Atlanta puts more attention on it's entertainment industry here then getting real jobs for people. Atlanta needs jobs not more movies, music or beautiful scenery.

I complained about paying 50 cent on ga 400 until I drove on the nj turnpike. I complained about our cold nap until I went to Chicago in the winter. I took the trees here for granted until I went to tx and boy that is an ugly state
What he said...TRUTH.

Or the "smells" from the Subway or the trash on the street. Summer in New York City (especially when there is a heat wave) is about the most miserable place you can find yourself.

I actually like the smell of NYC in the summer. Yeah, it's rank in places, but it is wholly NYC.
