I am soooo tired of Seattle weather. We had only three days of sun last summer, and used up our three days of sun for 2012 last week.
I'm eyeing North Carolina with envy, but wondering if it's just a case of "the grass is always greener." (But we do have pretty green grass here, when it pokes through the moss - also green.)
Any 'bot fans living down that way or know much about it?
I'm thinking that the infrastructure in that area should be pretty good, with the RTP money, but worried that property prices are high for the same reason.
I'm also expecting that with three or four top-tier universities, the culture is pretty cosmopolitan.
So, anyone got any good to say about the greater Raleigh-Duram-Chapel Hill region?
Alternatively, I've heard that Austin is a great city. Being in East Texas, it's actually green and also pretty worldly. I've also heard the music scene kicks ass. So if you know about Austin, please enlighten me.
Or, if you have any other suggestions for reasonably major metropolitan areas that have NO snow and keep the rain segregated to less than half the year, but still enough rain to support plant life that doesn't need spikes - I'm all ears.
Someone mentioned Atlanta on another thread ... ?
