    Just wanted everyone to know that as much as I poke fun at those of you who live near the arctic circle, or in god forsaken humid hell....that yes we in San Diego do get unpleasant weather here. It would surprise some of you how cold, or wet it gets. It might also surprise some of you how unprepared we are for this type of weather.

    Just know that what is regular weather for many of you, can actually be an environmental hell for those of us here in SD.

    Here's photo proof that we get bad weather:

    It's my fault. I'm on the left coast for a couple days. I'll be gone soon so you can go back to your regularly scheduled weather.

    Yeah, I see what you mean by being unprepared. Looks like the siding on that house back there has really started to fall off. Too bad that chick is in the way or maybe a feller could figure out what started that mess.

    It is funny though, rains in southern California are worse than a snowstorm in the NE. A little bit of water falling from the sky and people seem to forget how to function.

    A former boss told me when he lived in LV they got 2" of snow once and they basically shut down the city :crackup:

    I will gladly take 3 feet of snow and rainy days over earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis etc etc

    Too funny... A friend of mine just moved from Portland OR to "sunny" San Diego. Blame him! BTW, its been raining off and on here in the great NW since Oct 20th, but we'll be skiing by Thanksgiving.

    My brother lives in Poway. One year we visited for Christmas and at night it got down in the low 40's. He refused to turn on the heat and my wife got two ear infections. Nothing like driving an hour in the middle of the night to a Navy ER on Christmas Eve cause he refuses to acknowledge it can actually get cold in paradise.

    NCAA scheduled that game just at the right time.
  18. Why did I pay half a million dollars for a house where it rains still ? If I paid 200k I could see living where the teeth are minimal and the weather sucks but, I paid for good weather I should be getting it.

    I was kinda looking forward to the TarHoles slipping off the deck into the drink.

    Earthquakes: no warning, widespread damage, can be crippling for months depending on severity

    Hurricanes: plenty of warning, widespread damage, can be crippling for weeks or months depending on severity

    Tornados: minimal warning, spotty damage, can be crippling in small areas for weeks, severity usually measured in how widespread the damage is rather than the damage at a given spot

    Snow: plenty of warning even if the total amount of snow can't be accurately predicted, depending on local landscape damage can be range from blocked roads to total destruction of local power and telephone systems

    Tsunami: some warning, can range from a large ocean surge to total devastation of coastline

    I've been through all of those except a tsunami, and I have to say the snow is the easiest to plan for and deal with. All I need is time to put the snow tires on the truck (if they aren't already on), get gas for the truck and generator and fuel for the furnace, and food. I'm within walking distance of most of the essentials.
