It is legitimately usual for people to transfer south as they get to be retired.
The southern end of the country is warmer, with higher humidity, and virtually no change of ice and snow. I was certainly born and raised in the south, and as I got older I noticed I wanted to transfer north. I hate the high heat and humidity in the south, I certainly dislike it, so a lot of clouds and rain sounded right up my alley. After a few short stays in several small towns across the Pacific Northwest, I finally landed in Seattle, Washington, and after that I had found my true home. The weather in Seattle is not for everyone, but for me it is certainly ideal. Last year there was some amount of rainfall on 145 different afternoons, which is less than half but not a lot less. So yeah, it does rain a lot in Seattle, but that is a part of what gives the village it’s particular character. I also guess that the heavy rainfall is part of what makes Seattle homegrown cannabis the best in the world. Maybe I am blind to it because of my adoration for Seattle, but the weed they grow around here is on another level. I have never been to Amsterdam, but I would be surprised if they have as high of a grade of cannabis as both of us do here in Seattle. Maybe smoking all that killer dope is what allows myself and others to appreciate the Seattle weather so much? Since I’ll never move, I don’t know if I will ever find out.
