I retired from the Air Force in August and moved my family here to be closer to my sister and her family.

We live in Duluth. I was surprised by the diversity of the area and my wife ho is Japanese loves the fact that she can get some of her favorites from home here.

I like it. Crime is a concern we have on our minds considering where we just from (Japan). But other than that we haven't had any issues.

A lot of us southerners don't care for sweetened tea at all. Served by request only in our family.

What Gilah G. said does not really seem to need anymore explanation as the poster seems to be saying that those items are the reason why they moved to the Atlanta area.

Yes,, those were what we discovered we liked upon moving here in Oct.
Moved because husband had a job offer he couldn't refuse. The change has been good for our family.
There are some negatives, but that's another thread.

The Winter Solstice (shortest day of the year) is just a week away, on December 21:

ATLANTA: Sunrise 7:38 AM / Sunset 5:33 PM / Total daylight: 9 hours, 54 minutes
WASHINGTON: Sunrise: 7:23 AM / Sunset: 4:49 PM / Total daylight: 9 hours, 26 minutes[/quote]

^^^ In winter, Atlanta gets about 30 minutes more daylight than Washington because the sun sets about 45 minutes LATER in the afternoon.

The Summer Solstice (longest day of the year) is on June 21 next year:

ATLANTA: Sunrise 6:27 AM / Sunset 8:51 PM / Total daylight: 14 hours, 24 minutes
WASHINGTON: Sunrise: 5:43 AM / Sunset: 8:47 PM / Total daylight: 14 hours, 54 minutes[/quote]

^^^ In summer, Washington gets about 30 minutes more daylight than Atlanta because the sun rises about 45 minutes EARLIER in the morning.
