I went to SC for 2 years and moved back to PA and have been here 18 additional years. Went to Penn State which has way colder winters and lots of snow, wetter Springs, not too much Summer but I loved the crisp Fall, change of seasons, and the area in general.

I missed the seasons, rain, snow and didn't like the cold desert nights...too weird a shift in temp for me.

Add the brown air to it and I don't really envision myself living in Southern California.

Now the Bay Area - very similar weather to Philly, a tad milder but was definitely more what I was used to. I could easily see myself living there...

So you should head to SF or Philly...problem solved!

Please don't call it Penna, just like Californians don't call it Cali.

Every summer when it's 91 degrees with 95% humidity, I swear I'll move to a colder place. But then the Fall comes and I decide against it.
I would never live in southern California. Visit? sure. Move there? not on your life.
Maybe Montana.....

No, I'd miss the change of season. Nothing is prettier than the leaves changing colors. However when you say Pennsylvania, realize the weather in Erie is far different that the weather in Philly.

Pennsylvanians are afraid to change their life styles.

And everyone else in the other 49 states are changing theirs?

I've lived in four other states and my experience is people are people. Some will stay in the same place their whole lives and some people will move - it's not a Pennsylvania thing. In my family and my husbands family, each of us with the exception of one sibling, has lived in at least three states.

In answer to the OP, no I would not want to live in any part of California. Great for visiting but I prefer the change of seasons too much.
