Heh - there were downsides. (Off-Topic)

That's so AWESOME

We were a 20-minute drive from the nearest grocery store. Forget something? Live without it until next week. (Now, I just turn around and walk back the 3 blocks to QFC.)

It snowed a LOT in the winter... and occasionally, town plows would end up leaving a berm in front of our driveway when they cleared the circle. Doesn't sound awful... until you think about the year it was 8 feet tall and at least that thick, and took me a few hours to cut a car-sized hole through it so we could leave.

Want to eat in a nice restaurant or see a show? Count on driving time to be upwards of 30 mins. (I guess that can be true in a city, as well... but we have some pretty decent places in walking distance, and some world-class places within a 10-min drive.)

Dunno. I fought pretty hard not to move, when we came out here; Becky was tired of CT, but I loved living in the woods. You couldn't get me to go back, now, though.
