What is your point?

I had good friends in Yerington for some years. It is nothing I would write home about. Some of the local pubs were neat...but that is about it. Unless you irrationally love rural it was the pits. When you drive into Yerington for urban you are in deep s**t. And the lady actually opened a store there.

I am excited to meet this nice neighbor. There are good people everywhere!
Hi,
What he did was humane and normal. We are very friendly w all the neighbors and do help each other once in a while. More if needed.
It doesn't change the overall integrity most lack here or the 5 month long 114 summers. I do hope you love it! You may.

This is my first time on city-data.
But I am a Destination expert on Trip Advisor for Vegas.
No I have not lived there--but I've spent more days in that city than OP has lived there, lol.
As with ANY city--there is the good & the bad.
As with any situation, perspective & attitude are EVERYTHING.
I am an educator & NO WAY would I teach there.
But coming from the Mid-west (and having arthritis), Vegas weather is near perfect--hot & dry in the summer, moderate to cool in the winter. I love that I can sit on my patio in LV & have coffee in the AM & drinks in the PM nearly 365 days a year. I might need a jacket in the winter, but I cannot sit outside in the winter here. I may need to wait until after sunset in the summer--but even here, the humidity can make that uncomfortable even after sunset.
Not cultured? Guess museums & the Arts District don't count.
Plenty of hiking & lakes nearby.
Plenty of shows on/near the Strip.
Plenty of suburbs for "regular" life.
It's true, Vegas in many ways is like nowhere else.
And it isn't for everyone.
I'd love to live in SoCal but not comfortable with those housing prices...

It is difficult to get an accurate view of Las Vegas without living here. There are in fact those who want to live here and those who come here for the entertainment.

And the views are very different. We sell RE in Las Vegas working the NW and the mature segments mostly...Our views will be vastly different than one working the Strip and the entertainment.

And we find suburban Las Vegas very similar to suburban upstate NY and suburban OC CA.

We came here from OC. Financially a decision that cost us at least a half million dollars. But on balance we do not regret it. Much nicer to live in suburban LV Than nice OC. And we particularly like the RNPs sometime called the ranches or the horse properties.

I’ve never lived in Las Vegas. My only experience with the city is many trips over the years to the Strip. We have neighbors who have moved to LV and they are mostly positive about their relocation. What’s going on with the water situation?

The media is playing up stories about severe drought and dwindling water sources. They call the situation historic. Is it real or just hyped up media. Is there some sense locally of what the situation is and if future growth might be impacted.

I don't see why it would be any different than Arizona or California who also have water issues.

CA is developing De-Sal plants, but we in AZ/NV can't do that, so we're dependent on the Colorado River.

No Governmental official, Real Estate Developer or Salesman is every going say there's not going to be enough water, that's a no-brainer!

If we do run dry out here, and there's a small or medium or large exodus, it will drive up prices in the Midwest and East Coast like you've never seen before.

It won't happen like that unless say Hoover Dam falls apart. Water supplies run short and restrictions get harsh. No new growth allowed. Water taken from farms and businesses before residential. It won't cause an exodus, it will cause prices to go up because still demand to live in the area but no new growth to meet it.

At this point de-salitation costs like 5 or 10 times as much as other water sources. We haven't been able to figure it out yet, in the US, on a cost effective basis. Maybe one day. Plus, if that ever really did happen then California could stop taking from the Colorado. I think we are going to be just fine. There isn't going to be a large exodus... or even a small exodus. That's simply not reality.
