Do you like the state you live in?

I think it gets too cold here. I live in Minnesota. I plan to move to Florida in the next couple of years. I moved there briefly 2 times before.

I live in Florida and don't really like it. Far too hot most of the year. State government is way too conservative for my taste. And people aren't really as friendly down here as they tend to be in other parts of the country.

I like California in terms of our politics. I don't really like it in terms of the weather or the lack of four seasons. I don't like our wildfires or the fact that the power in my neighborhood gets shut off every time it gets even remotely windy due to wildfire risk (even though we've never experienced any wildfires in my particular area). I don't like that we are constantly in a drought because it never rains. So I have my annoyances with the state, most of them not being within the state government's control. I'd want to remain in a blue state no matter what, but maybe just not California anymore. I'm thinking I would be happier in Washington or Oregon. Or somewhere in the northern East Coast. That would probably be more my scene than SoCal.

I used to live on the East Coast, but I have lived in Minnesota since 1980.

I figure a blizzard is easier to recover from than a hurricane.

[b]Florida consists of these types of people:

◾ Retirees
◾ Passholders
◾ Rednecks
◾ Racists
◾ Ratcheteers
◾ Ridiculously Rich Folks
◾ Crazies
◾ Middle-Aged Partners
◾ Snowbirds
◾ Beach Dwellers
◾ Nature Lovers
◾ Tourists
◾ Out-Of-Towners

Shall I keep going? I'm a Florida Native since 2006. So to answer your question. No, I do not like the state I live in. Can't wait until I'm 18 to move my behind out of here.[/b]
I actually love California even though the cost of living has become ridiculous.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
Yes I do! We retired and moved to Florida. We love the warm winters. 🙂
GhostPoncho · 46-50, M
I’m moving out of Cali in 4 years.
[@903658,BelovedTed] To where, if I may ask ? I may eventually have to, but not as long as my parents need me.
GhostPoncho · 46-50, M
Same situation here. Perhaps you’ve read about these small towns In places like Idaho and Montana being overrun by Californians. Not sure where we will go but might as well take our money out of the condo and get something nice somewhere? .[@328496,bijouxbroussard]

It's lovely and the car people have to keep killing it, like all the other US states. No life must be left standing! America first, work ethic and all, you know. Minnesota and Florida are great for fascists.
monte3 · 70-79, M
😳. MInnesota is God’s country! Outside of the cold and mosquitoes and tornados life is perfect here! 😊 FL is great to visit in February!
[@744413,monte3] I'm sure George Floyd would add - and the very nice police departments.

Did you figure out my question/ assertion on the other the? Since you bring up race...[@760047,MarmeeMarch]
QueenandCrown · 41-45, F
Eh. Beaches, tropical weather, year long sun, yes. Hurricanes, gators as neighbors, Amazonian insects, not so much.
I change states every 3 to 6 months usually. So if I don't like where I am at, just wait and I will somewhere else shortly.
curiosi · 56-60, F
No, getting tired of it. On the other hand we have a great governor that has really fought hard for us. For that reason I am staying.
Powderflask · 26-30, M
Love TN. It’s good for outdoorsy ppl Mild winters, river fishing, mountains,lax gun laws, no authoritarian covid measures.
Winston335 · 56-60, M
I’d love to move south one day
I’m in NJ
I hate the cold weather
I’d love to be in shorts for most of the year ☀️☀️☀️😊
Coolkid77 · 26-30, M
I agree. I love in MN too and winter sucks here. I love our Spring, Summer, and Fall. Florida sounds much better.
I think it gets WAY too cold in Minnesota.
I don't blame you for wanting to move to Florida.
alongalone · M
No I dont like it but this country is teeming with creeps so there is no escape..
Dolimyte · 36-40, M
It's ok. Not a fan of the dick in charge right now, but that will change at some point.
Pretzel · 61-69, M
I'm in florida and want to move to Washington State in a couple of years.
AndyNyguy · 31-35, M
Kansas is actually pretty decent from a “road trip anywhere” kind of standpoint.
Like the state that I live in, but can't stand the government
Trippy · F
Parts of it perhaps. Rest remains the biggest ghetto in America.
checkoutanytime · 41-45, M
Yes. I agree winter/cold is a drag at times, but it's Home for me.
JupiterDreams · 26-30
Not really... I'm ready for a fresh start
