The temperature here likes to make camp in the low seventies and stay there for most of the year. Sunny and beautiful, especially after light rain, which is rare but always light. We got ten minutes of hail this year! What a treat!

I live in an area where there are so many acceptable lifestyles. One can make any safe choice they want to, and not be judged by the community. It is also a great location for someone young like me, because I can travel to LA, West Hollywood, and other fun locations.
People are friendly, neighborhood is pretty.
