Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Climate Change

We're spending a week in the Midwest (Chicago/Madison), and I'm remembering one of the biggest "cons" of all about this part of the country - the climate. Such a contrast to Sacto, where the heat is high but the humidity is low, and that truly makes all the difference in the world. I'm not sure I'm ready for this climate change, and it would definitely make the list of unappealing features of this region as a potential relocation spot whenever we choose to leave Cali.

However, I am sort of looking forward to the thunderstorms that have been predicted for tonight and tomorrow. We don't get much of that weather in NorCal, and it's something I miss. It should be especially striking to watch from the high-rise apartment where we're staying, which is just a block from Lake Michigan and has a great view of the Lake and Navy Pier.
