Quoted from calfdemon:
Ugh... SoCal born and raised and 6 years from retirement. Sorry, but great weather does not make up for everything else. This state (along with the rest of the "left coast") can fall into the ocean for all I care and the world would be a better place. While I wouldnt want to live in the snow, I think there are plenty of places in the USA, including Wisconsin, that would rank a lot higher than So Cal as a place to live.
While I don't live in SoCal (NorCal), having lived in other states in the US, I can't even imagine living anywhere else than CA having lived here now for almost a decade. That's simply my opinion and not meant to suggest that CA is superior than any other state for all people at all times, I just prefer it here over anywhere else I've been/lived. To each their own... I wouldn't want to live in WI but that doesn't mean it's a bad place or not a good place to live. People get to make their own choices and the political jab you took, the "left coast" BS, is wholly unnecessary. I always wonder why some people who live in CA complain about it so much, why are you even here then? We're grossly overcrowded as it is so... Yeah...
