Thinking of Moving Posted On: 7/3/2011 12:04:58 PM
I am thinking of moving from Corvallis, OR to Folsom, CA. I would appreciate some advice. The main categories I am evaluating are the Economy (I just graduated from OSU with a BS degree in accounting), People (are they friendly, educated, conservative/liberal, age range?), Weather (I kindof know this one already...) and the landscape (I kind of know this one already also...).
Thanks for the advice!

Corvallis is a great place to go to school in. The people are friendly, the grass in green and the girls are pretty! But the weather is terrible! Rains nearly every day during the winter and by winter I mean October-mid June... The Summer weather is nice but the town is empty because the students have all gone home...
Overall, this is a very nice, safe place to go to school but I wouldn't live here if I wasn't a student.

Tons of Hippies, Druggies, Enviornmentalists, Obamapeople... If you are conservative you don't want to be here, trust me.
Rain!! Posted On: 7/3/2011 11:41:42 AM
On a sunny day Portland and the whole Oregon Valley is an incredibly bueatiful place. Unfortunately, the sunny days are few an between.. I would guess that on average Portland has about 300 days of clouds/rain... and by rain I mean drizzle which may not sound as bad as heavy rain but trust me after a solid month of drizzle and NO SUN you will be crazy!! On the other hand, the Summer, once they start, is amazing. It rarely gets above 95, and in the summer it barely ever rains. an average day in July is around 80-85 and sunny :). However, summer can take a long time to start. This year (2011), we set a record for portland having the fewest June days above 80 degrees with 2!!
Overall, I hate the weather here. I need sun to function at a high level... But maybe thats just me.
Hope this helps in your desicion making!
