I have moved around a bunch for work; My beach house state was New York; I was used to snow and ocld 90% of the year.
I just hated it.
I was regularly frosty frosty and relying on my heater, and new York is horrible when it comes to restrictions, and the COVID stuff was handled so poorly in New York, you assume there are no plastic bags there anymore either? Then I got moved to FL for work. I loved the sunlight state for a few years. I then realized that I absolutely hated the weather. Way too hot 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 regularly be in the shade. My AC system ran non stop. It wasn’t worth the beaches and surf. There were looser guidelines in FL, however that wasn’t consistently a good thing. I mean nobody walks their dog on a leash and instead just lets them wander free. Now I live in Portland, Oregon. I have found that this is good 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 Oregon had legal weed. New York and FL are medical only; Being able to just walk into a dispensary and get what I want is liberating. I love that I can genuinely have edibles for once. With medical prescriptions getting an edible is genuinely rare. I like my new state and my neighborhood of Portland. I hope I stay here awhile.
