If you like 9+ months of nonstop drizzle and only seeing the sun once every few weeks until the month and a half it stays during summer, then yeah, Oregon is beautiful.[/quote]
Oregon has everything. We have desert, the ocean, and snow all most all year round on Mt Hood. Yes it does rain a lot here in Portland but I love it. I’ve been to Texas and while the people are nice it’s dry and dirty as all hell. [/quote]
So does Texas. You obviously didn’t come to Houston. It’s the definition of “tropical climate”. [/quote]
I made it as far as the airport. Most of my time was spent at Fort Hood and surrounding areas. I’m not trying saying anything bad about your state. I enjoyed my time there. From what I understand you guys have some amazing beaches there and I would love to come check them out some time. I’m sure you guys have a diverse climate but I’m telling you we have pretty much every extreme here mountains, prairies, heavily forested areas, desert, snow, and beaches all withing an hour or 2 drive depending on where you live. The only downfall is that it rains pretty much 9 months out of the year.
