Lived in So Cal for a short while during one summer. Got really tired of the incessant/continual hot dirty/smoggy air, and the first time it rained in Oct while I was there, I went out and ran around in the rain, being from Seattle, you understand. The moss between my toes and fingers had dried out and died, lol. Luckily, I ended up going back to Seattle, and drove my Sprint GT up through Cal with the windows open, letting some rain come in. It was very refreshing for a change.
Northern Cal I can take, and some areas there are very pretty, but So Cal sucks, in my book. Well, maybe San Diego is halfway ok but the traffic from at least the Grapevine to S.D. is terrible, almost as bad as Seattle now, hah.
