There are a lot of things people complain about here in Norther California. The cost of living is very high and we don't have those great seasons ya'll do in other part of the county. It has some great pay off though. For example, on the day after Christmas this year, when a record blizzard was hitting NYC, we were playing on the beach. Not in bathing suits exactly, but not snowsuits either. The kids had a fabulous time!
