Can you offend anyone else? So, you live in AZ but your favorite place to live would be San Diego. Please don't come back because, if you do, we are sure to have an earthquake here after you rented because you couldn't buy.
I have never written anything like this before (so you mods can delete it if you think that I am over the top) but I just could not believe how you took a tragedy and turned it into your own soapbox about where you cannot stand to live.
I apologize to any TCS members I may have offended. mrblanche - I have never been to AK and I always wanted to go. Maybe someday.
Err, i said I didn't like the humidity. by the way AK is Alaska.
And that's what I meant about Houston. I also made it clear it wasn't the people it was the humidity in arkansas which is the whole point of what I said.
referring to other places was because it showed I wasn't use to the humidty. there is none in those other places. Arkansas and Houston are the only two places that have it bad and that was my point.
And I can also tell you that those dixies you refer to are CONSTANTLY complaining about the humidity
But I certainly wasn't referring to the people, the way of life of the actual locations. I hate humidity. That's all. If Houston had weather like Austin I'd love it there.
As for Utah? I liked the weather there. coming from Montana it was nice to still have seasons but not stifling cold. the temp fluxuates from 20 below to over 100 and a 120 degree swing in temp is simply too much for me.

I grew up in Denver. Then my mother moved to Arkansas, so I know what you mean about the humidity. But it's something you CAN get used to. However, unless you're in the health field, you'd never get $150K for any job there. Great place to live, terrible place to make a living.
I think Ike will just be a few hours of heavy rain and wind gusts in Hot Springs.
Yeah SD is getting bad, but it's not as bad as it could be. I owned my house there, and when I left I rented it out instead of dumping it thinking I'd return. that just didn't happen.
I think I'm WAY more succeptable to humidity than some. I can't get use to it. 4 years in Houston made that pretty clear, and the other couple years in Hot Springs. I ended up not going outside unless I had to.
