I know what he means. After acclimatizing to 8 years in bone-dry Fontana, I can't stand Summer weather in South OC. All I do is sweat and complain, and my dog usually returns with fleas, a pest I don't have to deal with out here.

I felt this about the IE when I lived in the Mojave. Even worse, the LA basin felt like a steam room to me back then.

Interesting, and I was under the impression that everybody wanted to be near the coast. It seems to me that these inland valley areas provide better weather in a way, more sun and drier. I'm going to have to check out the IE. As you might have read in my other posts, I love dry weather more than anything. I even took a trip to Phoenix, AZ earlier this year. But the IE is not quite so hot, and you get a nice cold winter too. But the best thing of course, it puts you near the action of LA.

But then I love the hardcore urban areas of LA, like Leimert Park and Jefferson Park, south LA has a rough-edge quality that rings true with me. I also like the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood. Christ I can't make up my mind, I love all of LA!

I was, for decades, within .5 mile. Now I'm somewhere else and enjoying the elbow room.

IE is full of meth-heads, racists, religious fundamentalists, cow dung smell, and dusty air.

Make sure we continue to make that known, it keeps the riff-raff out.
