    I don't want to live somewhere that it rains all the time either. The whole point is wanting variety. The same damn thing every single day get rather boring. I enjoy rain, I LOVE thunderstorms. I miss thunderstorms.

    The reason people love California is because it's good weather all the time. Not a lot of rain, not a lot of snow, but depending on where you are, you can get to any climate you want in an hour or two.
    Depends on what you consider "good" weather. Boring weather is more like it. LOL

    And I can't get to any climate I want in an hour or two. I can get to the desert in an hour or two, that's about it.

    Back home, however, there are places I could live where within an hour's drive are: Great lakes to boat, jet ski, or scuba dive in; 2 class v rivers, a couple class III and IV and one class VI to raft, boogie board, or kayak down year round; fantastic rock climbing cliffs with hundreds of routes; great caving areas; mountain bike areas and trails; horseback riding trails; and two ski resorts. And I can actually live in ONE spot - not travel - and experience all four seasons.

    With NC, I don't have to worry about earthquakes that could take my state off the map. NC has hurricanes and tornadoes, but where I would prefer to live, neither is a huge threat. Weather is perfect here, all the seasons with windy, rainy spring, shorts and tanks summer, cool, colorful fall, and snowfall almost every winter. NC has a lot longer history. I'm more of a down home, country type. I have always preferred the Appalachian mountains to the Rocky mountains. The Rockies are bigger, but the Appalachians are prettier. Better food ha. We have sweet tea, the best bbq, fish jams, country gravy, and more.

    I also have personal reasons to prefer the east coast such as this is where most of my family lives. Disney World is on this coast.

    Hmmm. Tough call.

    Mountains/Hills - NC > CA. By a lot.
    Ocean - CA > NC.
    History - NC > CA.
    Countryside / Small towns - NC > CA.
    Seasons / Climate - CA > NC. Seasons suck.
    Food - NC > CA.

    But you guys are arguing about two of my favorite states. Either of them are better than pretty much everywhere else.

    I love Massachusetts.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Florida and Ohio have something in common in their drinking water, I think. I'm not sure what it is but if you're aged 18-34 and you're from either of those states, you've got a fair shot at being half retarded. Mainly I'm talking about the over-abundance goth/emo nerds and rednecks, but I'm sure it applies to other folks as well. Plus, driving through Ohio has got to be the single most depressing thing I've done in recent memory.

    My girlfriend calls Ohio "The Hellmouth," lol.
