@supremus don’t say Connecticut. Too far too cold.

@supremus Colorado (Denver, Boulder, etc.) is nice. Seattle is good too.

@pratik Colorado has been on my mind though not sure if I would like that much cold but def high. Seattle is unbearable except summer. All said & done nothing beats California in terms of everything being almost perfect location wise. Southern California in particular

@supremus Yup. I too wish we could live in California if we could afford it. Sad that unaffordability is totally artificially created.

@pratik @supremus California, really? I’d even ignore the cost consideration but, don’t want to deal with wildfires and water shortages that are getting worse by the day with no end in sight.

@supremus come to coastal Connecticut. Perfect Goldie Locks weather. Not too hot, not too cold.

@supremus really? I always thought of that area as major snow from Nov to April lol

@parag @supremus How come no songs are written about it? Plenty for California 😊

@pratik Haven’t you heard “Welcome to the Hotel Connecticut*”? @parag I’m sure it’s great there. I’d rather be there than California with the wildfires, droughts and wild costs of living.

*) PS: Always read that as “Connect I cut”.

@pratik very modest people here in the northeast. Don’t believe in false advertising like California.

@odd I was quite skeptical about Connecticut before I moved here. Took only a couple of seasons to start loving it. Especially along the shoreline in southeastern side of the state where we live. It is very green and this area is all small towns. No crowds or traffic if we stay away from the big highway that connects New York and Boston.

@parag Sounds perfect to me! If I haven’t liked it where I already live, that might be on the list.

@wrenman actually, yes. We visit the Broomall area often and yeah it’s red for sure, Philly burbs are surprisingly affordable compared to nova / dc

@supremus I don't think broomall is red. red starts way west of broomall and even then it's rich ppl red not hillbilly red
