    I was raised here near Houston and here's how crazy I am... I lived in beautiful, sunny, hardly any rain, NO humidity San Diego for about five years while I was in the Navy and I moved BACK to hotter than hell, random rainstorms, humid like you would not imagine Houston.

    What can I say... I missed brisket and Shiner Bock beer.

But there is this depressed mind set that there unable to change their stars(a knights tale) and it's frustrating that their teaching their kids to give up so early in life

    Texas is great. Houston??? Not so much. Lived 18 years there and got out as quick as I could. Three weeks after HS grad I was in basic training
    Hill country is the greatest and I'd move there in a second if I could

    You've never been to Appalachia. Different folks, same strokes.

    Is Appalachia in NC or VA.. I feel like I just got gas there on my travels back to Fl

    Both. Plus parts of Ohio, Tennessee, WV, and Kentucky, PA, Alabama, NY, MS, GA, SC, and MD.

    Deep Appalachia mostly(think coal country). I lived there for 5 years while my mom was a Lieutenant Commander in the Public Health Service. Exact same issues. Just white people instead. Some are so secluded they still have slight British accents from colonial times. Absolutely fascinating.

    Yeah! Exactly.. Move on and conquer

    I've lived in extremes. Born and raised in the south but lived in Fairbanks, AK for 8+ years.  Been 110 with the high humidity of the south and have been to -62 in AK.  Loved the summers in Alaska where normal temps were in the upper 60's to lower 70's but I'll take the weather down here all year compared to the months of cold and dark up there.

    Only advantage to the cold is that you can always put more clothes on.  Can only strip down too much before the cops come and take you away (at least in the South).

    For me the greatest attraction to the south is the people and the way of life.

    This is precisely why I enjoy the 4 seasons. There is no such thing as "too cold" for me. Can't strip skin off when it is too hot. The only way I will move back down south is if I am within a 5 minutes of the ocean.

    What part of coal country were you in?  I'm a hillbilly from Appalachia and am quite familiar with that part of the world.

    Humidity is one of the reasons that Southern ladies are so beautiful. Keeps their skin from looking like leather.

    I agree with preferring cold over heat.  I moved from Maine to DC and then Baltimore 14 years ago, but have not adjusted to the heat and humidity at all.

  • Ok not to re-hash a super old posting here..but i was reminded of this post and decided to do an update.

    Florida..really is not that bad.  I have actually enjoyed walking outside and always having pretty consistent temperatures.  The beach is two hours away, disney is 4 hours away same for Atlanta.  If there's one thing i cant stand its the low economic black families.  Im not racist and I def. am not opposed to black people, my wife is from Kenya afterall(though she's white..so i dunno) But 1. I cant understand the cajun/blackaneze language. 2. there's this inherint "were still slaves" mentality.  Grow up already.

    But besides that its been an absolute blast.  It sucks being so close to a large Universtiy because everyone thinks im related to FSU somehow and if im not im obviously a Gator fan..which is also not true.
    We found a pretty cool bunch of people at church and they keep us up.  I have provided many a egg delicacies and have TONS of people hooked on egg food.  The only thing that is lacking is 1. Good BBQ restaurants, 2. BBQ stores.  I have the big stores(Lowes, Target, BB and Beyond, and Home Depot..) but nothing that is JUST BBQ like i had in Colorado.

    henapple and I were just discussing at lunch today that it was getting a little boring on here and we were due for a blow up. Well, here she goes..................

    @mountaindewbass: I think this would be a good time to say "oh my god, my account has been hijacked, that wasn't me" so we all don't think you are an ignorant asswipe.

    I'm so glad you found a church of like minded people. Shocking.

    And no, having a white wife from kenya does not make you NOT a racist. It does not make you NOT an idiot either (although the jury is certainly out on her).

    What a tool.

    correct.

    I thought education causes pc to go out the door? Mature adults maybe? OrMaybe feeble minds don't understand and that causes hostility? We shall see

    So.. Wow. This got way out of control. Sorry if I offended people that was not my intent.

    I think it's best if this thread just dies a quick death and gets lost several pages in, or is simply deleted.
