California is super expensive but I've found a comfortable medium up here in the suburbs of the Seattle area.

It gets cold (but not too cold) but at least there's not black ice everywhere and snow on the ground for half the year.

It's sort of tragic that my locale doesn't have a Trader Joe's or a Whole Foods market but I'll be damned if there's not 10 goddamn Starbucks within a 2 mile radius.

We had an apocalyptic snow storm in early 2012

See, I would miss the snow. Plus there is only snow on the ground here for like 4 months... not half the year like a lot of people think. I think some people believe it snows here all year round lol.

Hopefully another blizzard like that never happens again. I'd just give up and die. I hate snow that much.

Also I feel like this survey forgot a couple questions, to be honest.

Like.

"What do you call the thing you gather your groceries in?"

(I've heard some people call it a buggy, carriage, and even a basket. It's a shopping cart, man.)

I spent a large portion of my life in northern Minnesota. It would start snowing in October and there'd still be some of it on the ground as late as May. You'd start to feel the warmth sometime in April. It's miserable. You don't even feel the sun for months on end. It's almost unnatural.

Most of Minnesota is further north than where I am, and yeah there is more snow overall in those parts. Especially in Midwest Canada.

I used to live so far north that most of my customers were actually tourists from Winnipeg.
