rocco I am an ole' Seattlite transplanted for the last 6 years in LA, if you can imagine! That is how desperate I was for a break from the gray and rain. This is coming from someone who mostly loved the rain and gray, but I spent 1 too many weekends with my husband down in the PS area during the year we only got 6 weeks of summer and sun and that was it--I was bitten.

Seattle is amazing, but as a runner I run year round now, which I never did in Seattle. I always started slackin' in late October then November was harder and then next thing you know no running for months and spring was a bloomin'. Seattle is also a lot of fun in the winter, but it is dreary and even dangerous downtown and in other areas. The traffic got to me. Combined with the rain and lack of light it can actually be very dangerous to drive at night as well. Can you imagine I feel so much safer driving here in LA? I do.

How is the golfing season in St. George rocco? How is it being a resident? What do you do for mental and artistic stimulation? Those would be my concerns and also the lack of shopping. But I have read excellent things about that area. Looks as though they even have a very good college.

I remember Redmond before MS. It was so rural and just nice and mellow, way mellow. Ah, it is so weird to leave Seattle. I must admit it is a tough city to shake, once it has crawled up into one's bones. But sun does have a way of making things prettier to look at sometimes. Rain? Well, it is a way of life there. You either live it or move on.

May I add, I haven't had more then 2 intelligent conversations since I left Seattle for southern California. I miss the brains of the Seattle folks. Nice people, interesting people, but also city savvy, with a bit of country about them. Interesting group of people and hard to replicate. Not much below the surface here in California, at least in Southern.

Awww come on fairweathergolfer... be nice. Not all of us Southern Californians are that shallow.. However I will agree it is nice to go to a party and not have to hear about who's plastic surgeon is better.

I have to defend my native Californians... There are a lot of very intelligent people there and have learned the hard way, that how you find them depends on the groups you associate with.....

BUT I will say this for the Seattle area... there are many, many more educated people here. Good people with heart. And not everything is always a competition here. If someone is doing something great...they share info as opposed to down there, where is is all about ME and What can you do for ME...

thanks. Hopefully I can stay awake an not join you is spirit! First night is always tough when you worked all day.

No, so far only 28,000 out, mostly on Whidbey Island which was spared for the last blast. Still early, so I may be crying by morning... holding the breath that north king county stays up and running for the sake of those who were out for a week before.

We have had a 100 year events occurr this winter wind gust equal to a catagory 3 hurricane at times more rain (close to 14 inches) in November in the recorded history of the city. I'm no meteorologist but what can all this be chalked up to??
