I also like the clouds and rain and wind, people think I am bonkers. Since I am home all the time when not at work, I like being in the trees and I can see Mt. Rainier when I go out. I used to be able to see the lake right below from the house before all the trees grew up in our view. We also have two rental houses, one on the river here locally and one on the ocean in Moclips; I like water views. We finally got good tenants in the river house here in town but the tenant in the ocean house is way behind on his rent so I could not ask him to leave until he pays most of that rent. I would not mind living in the ocean house but it is so far from any medical services, not good when we get older. So I will probably stay here but this house needs a lot of work.Oh nice! You should. I hear Sequim is a good place to go for retirement, and it is pretty close to Port Angeles. It's in a rain shadow which means the weather there is a heck of a lot less harsh. I thought about going there too, but I'd miss the clouds and the rain. I want to go somewhere colder. The weather keeps warming up I notice, and I've always been a cold weather person. Maybe I should just go up into Jeuno in Alaska, but I would miss it here. Dunno! I still got time to figure it out.
I would love Alaska but because of the two rental houses it would be difficult to move so far away. Of course I could sell all of them because I am constantly getting offers. I will decide after I retire. I would never go to live in a warm climate. I like snow as long as I do not have to drive in it. Luckily in case it snows we have a city bus that comes out this far because of Yelm.
