I'm from Baltimore, MD. After a combined time of almost a decade of living in various cities during my youth I've had my fill of heavy snow, blizzards, and rain "by the bucket" storms. The pleasant weather of Southern California, just took me and hooked me. I've been out here so long, that I'm now California....rized.
Unlike an earthquake every now and then, there is nothing like the given regular Hail, Sleet, Heavy Snow & Wind storms of the Northeast, the Mid West, Alaska.
....that I have been a part of for over three decades. Activity that has made me what I am & is more important than any job that I've ever held, all the money that I have made in life, any personal or real property owned or acquired, etc.

I can go on and on, because I've had quite an interesting life.
"L.A. City Council elects Herb Wesson as president" by David Zahniser, LA Times, 11-24-2011 & be sure to read the comments section.
The Black middleclass, black lawyers, & especially inept black leaders, such as Councilman Herb Wesson, etc., have been betraying law abiding U.S. born descendants of slavery for decades.
"Unsung Heroes Who Have Done More to Serve the Oppressed than Dr. Martin Luther King, the NAACP, etc."
"Elected Black Leaders and Other U.S. born Blacks, are Responsible for Oppressing U.S. born Blacks Too"
My best friends in life have been my Dad and Mom. Not only because of the fact that they have been good parents, but because they have stepped up to the plate for many other law abiding U.S. born descendants of slavery egregiously violated by government. Typically pseudo black leaders & others who fit the description have done just the opposite.
If I have anything to do with effecting change, it won't be business as usual.
