Hmm, that's strange. Maybe your stand is shifting due to the weight.
Oh, are you a Washington transplant? My parents moved to California and they miss Seattle too. :icon_neut@jadelin - How's the weather in Seattle? I miss living up there!
I couldn't agree with you more about the benefits of living here. Although the snow is pretty rare, unless you go to mountains. (Some people would call that a good thing too, though . . .) Looks like we might be in for some good fall colors this year, as it hasn't rained too much . . .I was stationed in Puget Sound for a few years. I'm actually back home now in L.A. The sun is great an all, but I miss the grey and cold. My theory is that if it's cold you can ALWAYS put more on...if it's hot, you can only take so much off. I rather a cool summer than the summer of 2006 and 2007. It was FREAKISHLY hot! Also seeing the green trees year round, fall, snow, and Crystal/Steven's Pass/Snoqualmie were not bad perks! Oh and all those coffee shops!
