I have moved around a bunch for work, then my loft state was New York; I was used to snow and ocld 90% of the year.
I just hated it.
I was always chilly cold and relying on our heater; New York is horrible when it comes to restrictions, but the COVID stuff was handled so poorly in New York; You believe there are no plastic bags there anymore either? Then I got moved to FL for work. I loved the sunshine state for a few years. I then realized that I entirely hated the weatherâ€¦ Way too warm in FL. It is the opposite of New York. 90% of the time I couldn’t go outside due to the heat. I had to always be in the shade. My A/C plan ran non stop. It wasn’t worth the beaches and surf. There were looser instruction in FL, but that wasn’t always a relaxing thing. I mean nobody walks their animal on a leash and instead just lets them roam free. Now I live in Portland, OR. I have found that this is relaxing in between weather. The people are friendly and there is a lot to do. Another pro of this state is recreational cannabis. I wouldn’t have thought that OR had legal weed. New York and FL are medical only, and being able to just walk into a dispensary and get what I want is liberating. I care about that I can actually have edibles for once. With medical prescriptions getting an edible is very rare. I care about our new state and our neighborhood of Portland. I hope I stay here awhile.
