51. You're right about spring and fall

But summer? Not too severe? Maybe if you live in Asheville. East of the mountains, it's a six-month summer. I am from here, but I much prefer the weather in, say, Michigan.

It is the "good road state", but we do need to get the Republicans out of the General Assembly before they destroy our public infrastructure, which is probably the best in the south.

There is also something I call the "California problem:" when a place gets a reputation as a good place to live, it can become a not so nice place after a while. The cost of living goes up, and poor planning can sometimes cause unforeseen problems with things such as schools. For the most part, the Democrats did a pretty good job accommodating the growth when they were in charge, but I don't trust the Art Pope crowd to do nearly so well--they are essentially looting the state's coffers.
