Living in perpetually sunny Southern California, I find it humorous when they get excited about the rare 80 degree April weather and truly feel their pain when rain and thunderstorms muck up weekend plans.
This is one weekend where I wish I were back there, the Cultural Tourism Department is offering a buttload of free walking and biking tours all over the city.
The Crapitals still suck (I only say that because I'm still bitter from my time spent with them in the 80's), people continue to complain about the Metro (but they really have no idea how good they have it) and the beltway is everyone's nemesis. So not much has changed over the years, but I do wax nostalgic every once in a while and maintain the statement that if I ever move away from L.A. I'd most likely end up back from whence I came.
