Visited South Carolina last year to visit my cousin. The summers was horrible. Couldn’t take the humidity.

Good thing everyone's different. I don't mind the heat and humidity. My hair and skin was too dry when I lived in southern CA, much nicer in this climate. Love the hot summers, we have a nice pool.

I'm very familiar with SB County. Unless you're up in Big Bear, Arrowhead, etc., I would get out. But to where, I don't know. I agree that you should look around at possibilities before you sell, as you could probably never come back.

This makes no sense.

We moved to E TN. Can't stand the weather. It is always damp. Mold, etc. Killing me with allergies and asthma. Leaving here next spring. 3 years was too much!! Not sure where to go back in the west. And this red clay dirt is a killer!!

I am from Southern California and live fairly close to E. Tenn. Have been here 3 years. I can't stand the weather here either. There's a reason no one ever flocked to the South or SE until now. Clouds, rain, Bugs, Tornados, violent thunderstorms, scary lightning. Not enough sun. Too much humidity. Think about that before getting stars in your eyes about how much house and property your CA sell will buy.

I've seen my area grow, undergo improved air quality, watch the value of my home double, felt temperatures get increasingly hotter and more humid, and seen crime escalate.. but not effect me or my family personally (yet). I'm semi-retired and can stay put, though moving to another state would enable me to be "mortgage free" and obviously experience somewhere new. Unlike many, I'm not politically motivated to leave. I won't diss this State. My taxes are high but not aggressively so, and the high cost of food and gasoline don't effect our lifestyle (yet). It's also nice to have a 10k' mountain just 10 miles to the North.

So why leave? Because I feel at times that despite the "island" I've worked towards and landed on, I'm just waiting to DIE.

Living near the LA County line, my area is now literally surrounded by 15 million people! My wife and I don't venture out towards LA or OC anymore because we know that the time spent in freeway traffic will last longer than the time spent at the destination. And honestly over the years, we've already been to most of the SoCal attractions anyway. During the Summer, we hibernate for 3 months in our AC cooled home like bears and I plan early morning trips to the grocery store just to avoid heat and the crowds. And in the Winter, we walk our usual paths, tend to arthritus issues and hope rain is in the forecast to make the days a little more interesting.

I feel like I'm ready for a change. However, part of me thinks I'll regret the choice because it's "California" and despite its reputation, people still want to be here. But on the other hand, it doesn't thrill me that we're all just one major earthquake away from financial ruin!

Any thoughts? What are your reasons for staying or leaving?

(sorry so long)
Try Washington State. It rains all the time and has mountains.

Several friends moved to Seattle. They can’t take the 9 months of drizzle and would love to back. Also
the property taxes more than make up for the no income tax. I’ll have to admit the summers are beautiful in Seattle.

Why does this not make sense? There are many places that SoCal residents have moved to that for various reasons are no longer desirable. Is that hard for you to understand?
