As a native of the Phila Suburbs, I have to ask, why are you moving here? Hope it is a great job, or girl, or whatever, 'cause yesterday it was 38 and we had a nice mix of rain and snow. Although I have had only one day this year when the 4WD on the Land Rover was really necessary, and in a bad year you'll get 1/2 dozen 4WD days. I have to add, however, that our traffic is a little easier to take than LA's, at least from my experience of a visit there a few years ago. 3 AM on a Friday night and the A10? (not sure of the route designator as I was jet lagged something fierce and going to my hotel from a wedding party) was packed with cars 3-4 lanes wide. Oh, and we get 90 degree days here too. You'll love August with 90 degrees and 100% humidity. But when you get out here, us East Coast F-Chat guys will look out for you!
