California Does Have It's Good Points!  

Posted in ,

Well I spent an "interesting" week in Nashville. I learned all sorts of things that I'm pretty sure I won't have many opportunities to use, but it's nice to have the information available to me.

So the plane flight was for the most part uneventful. I do think that the pilot in 3 of the 4 flights had to be a complete novice. They must have been practicing take off and landing on our flights, because it was pretty rough going up and coming down except for the first flight. Now that guy was a true pro and I didn't feel much beyond the surge from the jet taking off (yeah we all liked him the most).

I say I was in Nashville, but I only slept there. I spent my days in a lovely little town called LaVergne (or maybe Smyrna). They seem to run into each other, and I couldn't tell. But it sure was green everywhere.

Downside for us California bred people would be that humidity is our true enemy. That idea was reinforced all week for me. I can't really get used to the idea of getting out of the shower, getting dressed and going outside to feel like I'm just getting out of the shower again. It was horrible to say the least from that side of it. So I think that I will stay in California unless I'm forced to go again. Or at the very least I will pick a dry climate state to visit next time.

Now if I can just find a way to get those prices to migrate to California, I'm set. $2.45/gal for gas is a dream come true. I'm hoping if I do go back that Opryland will be dry and repaired , cause I didn't find a single country star (dang it).

So Lisa Marie I give you much credit for enduring the humidity and not to mention the thunderstorms.

Beautiful place to visit, but I couldn't ever live there.....

I hear you!
My family is pretty much all in Kentucky. I'm probably going there for a reunion in July. I've done it before and it the humidity sucks....

Yep, it's like that in Texas, too. Might as well skip the shower, unless you plan to stay inside. Once you go out, all that sweet smell, doesn't smell so sweet anymore. More like Eau de Wet Dog!

It couldn't get any worse than here in Louisiana. 99 degrees with 85 percent humidity...wow it's nuts. Driving down the roads you have watch out for fish in the air, not deer. You can almost net them right out of the sky!
I'm with you, I'll take the dry hot desert climate any day.

Woahh..why didn't my comment appear?!? I wrote it 2-3 days ago!!
So I was saying that the humidity really does suck when it's hot, and it's really ugly too when it's cold. It looks like you had a great time though with your formation!:)

I agree! Love Nashville, but couldn't live there. Other parts of Tennessee, however, I could. Love the trees, shrubs, plants, weather. And hillbillies...

I don't think I could stand humidity, growing up west coast near the ocean everythign is just wet, for the most part. I've never visited any of the places you mentioned but hope to...maybe this summer after work ends!

We're sooo spoiled out here! The humidity would kill me too.

"Goin back to Cali..."

Humidity can kiss my ass. $2.45 a gallon you say? That beats my NY price of $2.95.

What are the prices in California?

they hover around $3.00/gal. That's our environmentalists saving the state...
