Hi, I thought I would ask where everyone lives, not the town just the state, I thought it would be interesting to see where we all are and maybe be surprised by how many of us reside in the same states.

My kids graduated from Reynolds High School and my first job was at Davis School in that district. Do you mean Mt Hood CC?

My husband and I will be volunteering with Oregon's Whale Watch program during spring break at Shore Acres State Park. When I lived at Arch CApe I helped at either Neakahnie or Ecola, but more recently we go to Cape Dissapointment. Our days are March 26 & 27. Come on over and help us spot migrating gray whales!

In my years of living in Alaska I called myself a transplanted Oregonian, and as I graduated from Oregon State University, am really out of place up here in Dawg and Cougar land wearing my brigh orange colors. I went to Medford High School, but a Portland grade school, and after marrying the first time, lived most of my life in Portland.

Such a small world! I went to Jr High and High school in Klamath Falls,OR When most of my friends were dreaming of running away to Hollywood, I ran away to Fairbanks, AK. I spent 2 years living in my friend's cabin 50 miles N of Fairbanks. I lOVED it but after 2 years got sick and sick and Alaska in 1970s didn't go well together. I came back to the lower 48 to be around Drs. I always dreamed of going back but as usual life got in the way.

My husband lived in Fairbanks and Anchorage, and I've lived in Sitka, Juneau, and Anchorage, but we didn't meet until we both retired to Seattle. Yes, until the pipeline was finished Fairbanks was rough… Alaska was rough. I (we) miss it, but I keep in touch by having the Anchorage paper delived daily via the web. And we all know the current current governor…

South of Seattle, in a 'burb known as Kent. It's warm enough to go outside and pull weeds. But it might snow (none forecasted, though) next week. I have tulips poking through!

I'm in Dallas,Texas. Years ago I went on a vacation to London. When I was there if anyone asked me where I was from all I had to say was Dallas. Thanks to JR that was all I had to say, lol.

Well I was hoping to find someone in the same state as I am at the least but it seems you are all everywhere around but here lol

We usually have cold weather here, like its 18 right now but no wind (which seems to be daily lately) have a heatwave predicted of 56 for the high today, maybe the snow will melt away today.

Thanks to all who submitted where they are. Was nice to get an idea of where you are when we chat and discuss things.

Hugs & Luv,

Unfortunately it's brutal here in Atlanta as well, altho you northerners would probably laugh at that. In single digits,taking wind chill into consideration. Painful! Very sick of it!

Diane the weather there now is like Fall here in NorthEast Ohio..lol…the wind chill now is about -11 deg…BRRRRR…how about a Convention in Florida? it's closer…lol

Florida may not be the best either. Last night they were suppose to be in a deep freeze, low's in the low 20's. Might as well stay where I am, here in WV. LOL

2009-02-05 11:05:14 -0600 Report

Yeah. Someone needs to talk with Al Gore and find out just when the "warming" starts!!!!

2009-02-05 11:15:33 -0600 Report

LOL Unfortunately, the deep freeze may mean a raise in price in oranges, grapefruits, and other produce we depend on getting from Florida. More frugal spending on our part, again!!!

Sorry you broke your wrist. Get better soon. Broken bones are no fun. I've had a couple in my time, and it definately wasn't enjoyable.

Debe Debe Debe… I leave you alone for one day and look what happens!! Just kidding.. I'm sorry to hear this. Hope it heals well and you get better fast.
