    Don't know exact temperature, but London is very pleasant in the summer (usually anyway), rarely gets that hot, and definitely not that cold either

    Bingo--the non-stop rain would be a problem.

    You obviously haven't been to College Point or the entirety of Jamaica. Even the bus drivers suddenly become idiots! [​IMG]

    Indeed. This is the beauty of NorCal coastal living.

    It's extremely dry during our abbreviated summer. July - Sept. we typically see little to no rain. Not even storms. The other 9 months of the year, yes, you're getting damp (and pale).

    If there's one thing that residents of NY, NJ and CT can agree on it's that MA drivers are the worst.

    It's been downhill since they fixed the on-ramps on the Merritt. They used to weed out the bad drivers of a Darwinian way.



    Wait until you haven't seen the sun for 90 days straight and you're scraping the moss from behind your ears.

    I've noticed that PA drivers are generally ignorant of "most rules of the road" and very unobservant drivers in general.

    Anyone ever been to the John Dory oyster bar? I think it was 28th off Broadway. Went last week. Not a bad place.
