I'm in Nevada a bit over a year. Three things I don't miss about NY are humidity, winters and the flatness.
When I look out on my patio and see the mountains, I'm still awed.

Unfortunately they barren ugly mountains. When it comes to the outdoors, LV is boring in my opinion.

I wish I would have spent more time in Lake Tahoe when it had much better stuff.

You are entitled to your opinions, wrong as they are.

Maybe some Miami residents just aren't smart enough to live in better-off neighborhoods that get their needs met first, just like they aren't smart enough to avoid prison. Or, maybe it's racism. To me, it sounds like a death sentence to be unprotected in Miami with this hurricane fast approaching.



Wanna change that to Tampa? I'm evacuating to Biloxi, where they seldom have canes! Will we see you there?

About the "Women making 77 cents on the dollar compared to a man's dollar for the SAME or comparable job, there was a study that simply said,"This happens because women tend to be hesitant to ask for raises wheras a man will not be hesitant to ask for a raises."

Was that the study that concluded that 68% of studies cited on the internet exist only in the posters mind?

Not anywhere I ever lived. Tallest hill on Long Island is about 500 feet. NYC is even flatter. Went to school in Rochester. Not a hill in sight. About 100 miles to anything resembling a mountain.

43 min dead south of Rochester...



And that, minus the falls, is exactly what my backyard looks like. I can see less than 300' in any direction save one, where I can see both ontariodealer's and SOOPOO's places of employ (approx 25-30mi away as the crow flies). T'ain't the Sierra's, but all walks are hikes in my parts.

My condolences. No one should have to endure LI.

And while gazing out over the lake I assume you are eating a white hot and drinking a Genny Cream?

Way too many trees. Gross. There's a reason logging is an industry, and it's not because they need wood for construction etc. Its just the excuse to solve the tree infestation.
