    Yep, all depends on what part of California you're talking about. Here in the San Francisco bay area it is anywhere from 50-85 degrees on average between the seasons with occasional 100 degree days in summer and occasional 30 degree nights in winter. Like said, if you plan on moving here you better have LOTS of money because EVERYTHING is over priced in this state.

    South Lake Tahoe vs. Plam Springs, Kalifornia is a large and varied state.

    I Love So.Cal.!!!
    Long Beach
    Summer 70-100 with avg of 85
    Winter 55-70 with avg of 65
    Almost blue skies every day of year, except for the one month or so of straight rain lately.
    Oh also here in long beach we have to deal with the damn "Marine layer and coastal eddies"...Wich i hate both :mad:
    But other than that i love LA
    Deserts to the east
    Mountains to the N.E
    Ocean to the W
    Mexico to the S
    Vegas within 3-4 hours :D

    Yeah I should of been more specific. Probably more north and more east. But still close enough to the ocean... I don't know
    Thought of eventually moving somewhere...California in on the lower of the list because of how huge population wise it is, and because its so expensive...

    Thanks

    Property tax, Income tax, Sales tax (8.25 % in LA CO.), Gas ~$3 gal. Ask "Chevyin" in the Pacific Region Forum; they just came from FLA. to Pismo area. Pretty painful, but they like it here. I'm just lucky to have been brought here in '63. And when I retire, I'll probably move to someplace that gets muddy, but I will NEVER sell my property, I'll rent it. But that's what CA is about, if you can get that big nut, it's downhill from here. :wink1:

    Don't believe everything You hear Steve. The whole state is not over populated. In fact the north east has very few people and the land is not that high especially in Modoc county. Most of that area is made up of the Sierras and high desert. Temps there are pretty damn cold in the winter with lots of snow and mild in the summer. Now over on My side in the north west part we have plenty of rain in the winter with temps dipping down to the 30's but for the most part we hover in the 50's. Summers are mild with an average of about 85. Again We have a small population up here with lost of land with mostly timber and rivers. I'm only a 30 minute drive from the ocean.

    Coreys' right, N. CA is beautiful, it all depends on what you are used to. I came from Phoenix to the beach, took five years for my joints to stop the pain.

    I know everywhere wont be overpopulated. But California alone has as much, or more people than all of Canada. Cali is 155,959 sq mi. (403,934 sq km) and I Canada is 3,851,787 sq mi (9,976,128 sq km). Cali has approx. 35,893,799 people in 2004 and Canada only has approx. 32,805,041 people in July of this year. So with that little of land, and that many of people, I think it will be way different for me either way.
    I don't know yet. Does anyone have a link to a reality site in California that I can see some examples of different cities prices of certain houses? I can't relate to how expenisve it is yet.
    I will take your guys word that it is waaay expensive-will it ever go down though? The wheeling there looks great, ocean near by, lots of wommen, mountains, lakes, big cities, etc.

    Still have time to decide. Thaks for the help.
