Bottom Line

In response to 140807: I find Hawaii Cheaper Overall, posted by Mark S2 on Tuesday, 4 April 2017, at 6:00 a.m.

I'm with you Mark. Those Washingtonians aren't taking into consideration the cost of heating in the winter. And the rain!! Give me a break!! Plus, it's too cold to go in the ocean anywhere north of Moro Bay California at any time of the year. I used to live in Ashland Oregon. We had SNOW for crying out loud. I had to buy a separate set of tires with studs for the winter time. Rust? Back East where they salt the roads it's 10 times worse than here. Some people just don't belong in Hawaii. If you like snow, freezing rain, the Fall colors and hate the ocean, then the mainland is for you. Bottom line for me, if I can't go in the ocean 365 days a year, I don't want to live there. I don't care how cheap it is. I wear shorts & sleepahs to work!! Some things are just worth more than money.
