Re: [chat] This just in...


Hi Jesse, What Nora says re climate and location is correct.  It's inland,
quite hot (but dry) in the summer, mild and foggy and rainy in the winter.
Definitely a suburban feel, many California subdivisions, chain store
shopping areas, etc.  aThe cost of living, especially housing, will seem
very high to you.  Suspect the schools would be adequate as my impression is
it is middle class / upper middle class.  I think a lot of tech are
companies there -- is that what your husband does?  It's probably at least
an hour's drive into San Francisco.  The east bay (Oakland / Berkeley) is
closer and a cooler climate since by the bay.  Hope this helps --
--Barb Tandy, Grass Valley
