I smelled wildfire when I let my dog out around 11 p.m. Obviously it's been really windy in Raleigh due to the hurricane nearby so I'm guessing Irene's winds pushed the smell up from the coast. The only good thing about all the rain is it will finally put the fire out!! Now for my gripe... since I moved to Raleigh in April, I've experienced a tornado, several bad air days from the wildfires (that literally made me nauseated to go outside), oppressive humidity & heat, an earthquake, and now a hurricane hovering nearby. I was considering moving to Wilmington, but I think I might move out of the state completely now!

I suggest
QUILLAYUTE, WASHINGTON—Ever heard of it? Neither had we. In fact, it’s not a city but a location where weather data is accumulated and because of the numbers, it ranks as the number one worst weather location. It is tied with Astoria, Oregon as the cloudiest U.S city (240 days) it is the most humid (83% relative humidity), and it is second in terms of rain (104.5 inches) and number of rainy days (210)

It would be perfect for you.

It could be worse. The only thing out of the ordinary was the earthquake. Where are you from originally?

I've lived all over the country and there's something bad wherever you go. Midwest: humidity, tornados, earthquakes, flooding. West: earthquakes, wildfires, mudslides, tsunami warnings, self-absorbed people (I lived in SoCal), expensive. East: humidity, hurricanes/flooding, wildfires. There are hardly ever earthquakes on the east coast. I love living here so far because people are nice and I love the slower pace of living. This is my first hurricane and although I'm nervous, what can I do? We have insurance! I evacuated to Cary (and by the way, I smelled the wildfire, too) because my husband had to stay behind due to his job. I'll go back tomorrow and do what I have to do to get things back up & running. So, no matter where you move, there will always be something! You live in a great state!

I absolutely hate the winter and I really, really hate snow. There is nothing pleasant about being so cold that it hurts.
