Why Here?



I often get asked from friends around the country, why it is I chose to move here on the coast? For those of you who are from elsewhere, and for those of you who may need to be reminded of the good things here, here is a list of things that make this area stand out.

1. We are minutes from the ocean.
2. There are no major bug problems here, I have yet to see a screened in porch.
3. There are no poisonous snakes here.
4. There are no poisonus plants here (poison ivy, oak, sumac.)
5. When it's 90 degrees in the rest of the country, it is 65 here.
6. When it is below 0 in the rest of the country it is 45 here.
7. In a two hour drive you can go skiing, even in the summer.
8. We rarely ever get any rain from the 5th of July until late October.
9. There is a lot of water and most houses in Astoria have water views.
10 Drive 2 miles out of Astoria and you are in the country.

You might not want to publicise. I'm ready to head to that way, based just on this.

Okay, that PLUS it's closer to the good wine regions.

Having you as a neighbor would be funny/crazy. Think of all the stunts we could pull on all the normal folks. Now get out back and hug a tree to practice for an eventual move.
