When my brother graduated college he told the family he no longer wanted to live in New York.
Our home state isn’t really great. Everything is expensive, restricted and the whole state is going to shambles. It also is just horrible weather wise. Basically all year long it is winter. New York winters are colder than Iceland, fun fact. The sun comes down in feet and comes early. I remember trick or treating and hunting for Easter eggs in the snow. I had one year in college that I had to wear winter gear the entire time. When my brother landed in Spokane Washington, everyone was confused. I figured Washington would be just as cold. He moved four hours away to have the same problems? That made no sense. Well my brother has lived in Washington for a year and just loves it. His winters are cold, but not like ours. He gets no lower than 25 degrees in the dead of winter. In New York I have dealt with -25 degrees before which is a big difference. The summers in New York are a joke. It is basically a bit of humidity in the morning followed by cold nights. In Spokane my brother actually gets a summer. He enjoys high 70s and 80s for a few months out of the year. He actually owns an air conditioner and operates it. Our family has never owned a cooling system before. There was really no point. He actually gets to experience all four distinct seasons and enjoy them. I want to move to Spokane now.
