Sunshine and 80 degrees on Christmas day is fabulous.

Ironic that you prefer mountains and non-flat topography, yet always rag on the Western US.

Californians don't move to Florida. Californians hate Florida.

Well, my friend and her husband have been living in SoCal for the past 2 years and can't wait to leave. They are building a new house in Florida and will be moving there in April. They're excited to move away from the arid climate and into a lush climate.

I have always said that I find the scenery and topography of the West to be very impressive.

Using that metric than why is Alaska not a top state in terms of population? Is it not the largest state geo graphically?

I seriously doubt California is hemorrhaging that many whites a year but reasons would be a low birthrate and retiring baby boomers selling their high-priced California home, taking the profits and buying a "nicer" home in flyover country and then having a half-million left in the bank.

They can afford SoCal. They purchased a condo in San Diego outright for $400K. They have about $1.1 million in cash leftover. The husband received $1.5 million in proceeds from a serious car accident or something when he lived in England. They like SoCal in general, but their main complaints were that it was a rather superficial culture and too brown/dry for them. That's what she told me.

Two years ago I almost moved to San Diego, but was starving for green landscapes within days of being there. Plus, it's ultra expensive.

Hhmm...really? I can't help but think of the countless times you've referenced the West with negative comments.

Exactly. And Texas is larger than California, too.

Yes. The wife is from New England and her husband is from England. He was in a serious car accident or something in England several years ago and got $1.5 million in insurance proceeds. So he moved to the U.S., married her, and they moved to San Diego (from Boston). Now, two years later, they want out. They chose to move to a suburb of Orlando, FL called Winter Park. They're new house will be completed in April.
