I'm not Seashelly but I'll see if I can answer the questions. I spent some time on the coast at a job I had a couple of years back. The south coast weather is all pretty similar. There could be a little more rain toward the south end of the state but the temperatures are about the same. No the furniture never was damp. Things are dry inside even when it's raining.

Default Weather on the Coast

Oregold knows. Our summer temps are in the 60's. A dehumidifier in the house takes the moisture out of the air.

Thumbs up Undiscovered Paradise

I really enjoy visiting the coast, crabbing, swimming, tidal pool exploration, etc. I used to sail out of Brookings quite a bit.
I was born in Pendleton, spent time in the childrens hospital in Portland every year till I was 18, Went to college in La Grande, and lived in the mountains above Cave Junction as a teen.
I have always loved the mountains, but as I grow older and my child is raised, I have been looking for a place to make my final home.
One of the factors surrounding my choice of home is population, the other; the general attitude of the population.
I have decided to move to a spot 38 miles from Christmas Valley. Really like Shara Schumway (realtor). Unsure about some of the other people we met. Cheap property.
My first choice would have been Harney County. Wide open spaces, friendly people. People in Jordan Valley are very friendly and helpful, but they seem a little too modernized for me.
The weather can be severe, but we will compensate.
I guess the most important thing about where I am going is that it is mine and it will be home.

Absolutely, without hesitation...

Astoria, OR


It's the most beautiful city in Oregon, close to great beaches, forests and shopping and did I say beautiful? 'Cause it is! I've got some pictures up on the city-data page. Amazing.

At this time I am living in Texas, and hope to return to Oregon soon. I've lived all over the state, Southern Oregon, Portland area, coast, and Eastern Oregon. So, I know what's there and know what suits me. I'd have to echo the other poster above and say I'd choose La Grande to live in. It's a wonderful outdoor playground for nature enthusiasts. The town is sitting in one of the most beautiful valley's in the world, completely surrounded by the Blue Mountains and the Wallowas. Rivers galore, alpine lakes, snow skiing, hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, birding; all within the area. I do know when I lived in Milton-Freewater, not to far from La Grande, that we did have snow, but it wasn't long lasting now did it seem very cold. The summers are dry and great for outdoor use. I'd most definately check out La Grande when I get ready to come back home.

In the Portland area of course :-)
I love the city just in the middle between the mountains and pacific coast.
I also like the really warm and sunny summers and I can stand the wet, muddy and dark wintertime.

A few month ago we had the chance to move to Boston- no thanks, no needs for this ;-)

I chose Brookings. It's the only place on the coast I could possibly live. I can deal with the rain and fog only so long as I get some summer days in the 80's and 90's with some sunny winter days in the 70's thrown in. Nowhere else on the Oregon Coast offers this sort of hide-and-go-seek Mediterranean component to the climate (wish we would get the banana belt weather everyday!). My garden has palms, tree ferns, gingers and lemon trees. In addition, the Siskiyou/Klamath range is one of the most spectacular outdoor recreation areas in North America. Great hiking in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness as well as in the redwoods and along the coast.
My second choice would probably be West Linn or Lake Oswego, if cost were no object.

We were born in southern California, (Orange county). Moved to Northern California, (Occidental-outside Santa Rosa). Moved to Selma, Oregon (Grants Pass-Cave Junction area) Moved to Albany, Oregon. Now we are retired and want to sell our home and move to La Grande or Baker City area. We love the area over there. We go to visit and camp over there whenever we can. So, that is where I would pick. Also, my mother lives in Brookings but I am never too impressed when I have stayed there. Too much traffic. Many foggy days. Days with heavy rain.
