Just a quick note, I do think as many people as possible should leave California for anywhere.

But regarding Georgia summers. My mother grew up in Georgia, married and moved to California. She won't go back to Georgia in the summer, for any reason.

My son and I spent part of a summer in in the southeast, we wanted to visit Civil War battle fields, we did so, from inside the air conditioned car.

Summers in the Georgia and the South East are near intolerable for anyone accustomed to the dry air of the west.

The idea of showering, putting on clean dry clothes, walking outside and being soaking wet inside ten minutes is not appealing to some.

Clarks, when was the last time you were in GA? No, no one gets soaking wet during the summer and it is not the entire summer that the humidity/heat is persistent people tend to over exaggerate a lot (I've experienced out days and longer heat periods in So. California). For the most part June & but mainly July are the hottest and most humid months in GA. Other than that it is pretty darn lovely all year round. To the other poster I hope you get an opportunity to visit the place.

I spent my first 25 years in West LA and now live in the Atlanta area. When I first got here, I couldn't handle the heat. I HATE being hot, and I nearly passed out half a dozen times because I underestimated what my not-so-acclimated little body could handle.

I still despise being hot, but I can't lie, even though I contemplate moving back to CA, GA weather is pretty easy for anyone. This past spring was very mild (I have allergies, had them in CA, had no problems this year), the summer was mild too, and nothing in coastal CA compares to the beauty and feel of a GA fall. I'm not even a tree person, hate camping, but it's breathtaking and a joy to live in. Sure, my first spring here my allergies tried to kill me, and my car was yellow for about a month, but CA weather isn't exactly 365 of perfection either.

I am glad to hear that ya'll like Georgia, now if you can get 10 or 20 million Californians to follow you, that would be really cool.

When my mother was a girl they had two wood cook stoves, one inside for winter, one outside for summer. The girls picked greens in the woods, the boys brought home squirrels and possums and such. They was po'

She likes California.

Who cares as long as we're among the 20 million? Let everyone with their hand out fight over the scraps.

Fighting over the scraps is going to be great fun to watch. All those enviro nuts, business-hating socialists, $150K/yr gvt pensioners, and the few people who actually work on a productive (non government) job are going to have quite a battle for the table scraps.

I love this stuff, don't these guys have an education? The Global Rank number is Forbes world ranking by company, not bank size, notice that 9 out of the worlds 10 largest are from those socialist countries, including [oh my gawd] the French and the Chinese Commies.

And the world's largest company is from one of those business hating socialist countries, who'da thunk?
