Nice. I'm not sure if we'll be flying or driving out there when my sister has her baby, my mom is flying out there, but my work schedule and my dad's work schedule may not allow us to drive out there, which will dictate what I bring with me.
It does get warm, but it's passed the timeframe for warmth in the SF Bay Area, this past summer and the few summers before that, it was cold as .... and got hot around the middle of September.
I'll be back in that general area (I hail from the North Bay) to visit, since my older sister is still there and will be having her kid in March-April, so if I have the time (work schedule permitting) we'll definitely try to chill and possibly jam if I have a guit with me.
Rain I'm fine with, as well as fog, but I have started hearing it's not as warm as I expected but oh well. As long as it doesn't go below 40's, even low 50's, I'm content. That's the point where I'll be like "THIS IS ....ING CALIFORNIA I AM NOT PAYING FOR THIS KIND OF ....TY WEATHER!"
Also, I HOPEFULLY get to keep my current job as a photo tech since there's a Walgreens right down the street from where my school is; so I'll get a raise to adjust to cost of living + the 5 years I've been with the company raises on top of that...I think.
Let me warn you that the bay area is food and foggy during this time of the year, not as file as MA or CO, but still pretty cold. There's a lot of rain, as well and it's expensive to live in California.
WHAT?! I've always loved the idea of California, and it might just be through clever marketing and bad media, but it looks beautiful...and sunny...and warm, unlike MA in the winter. I'm moving to San Francisco to attend the Art Institute with a major in Game Art & Development.
You guys totally picked the wrong time to leave the state since the party is just getting started over there
