Moving to Portland
I currently live just outside Washington, DC. It has it's advantages, 3 airports, a lot of jobs, history, the Smithsonean and a very diverse population.
However, it has it's disadvantages. Humid Summers and cold winters, traffic, cost of living, crime (as you get closer to the city)
I am thinking about relocating to Portland. I have relatives in Seattle and San Francisco so a point in between.
I guess the big question is the weather. Can I survive in a moist atmosphere after all this time in Hot Humid. Is this something that deters a lot of people? Are there activities to keep dry?
