How is Virginia?
Harrisonburg is apparently called, the friendly city. Damn man, they're right. Even the people who have **** jobs, like customer service, are friendly, with happy conversations, and smiles.
The weather, so far, is better than NY. It was hotter in Catskills than down here, for a while. I think summer just lasts longer here.
It's very diverse, in that Harrisonburg is a major hub for immigrants. I like that, I just feel bad because I don't speak any other languages. As a teacher, it's tough to help families because the majority of the population speaks Spanish, Kurdish, Swahili, and a bunch of others.
But do far, every family, English or not, are so damn friendly. NY, at least upstate, are surly and want nothing to do with being nice, or have basic common courtesies, and I lived there for 32 years. I'm not going back.
If you're talking the pickup, I'm not sure because I haven't had a chance to play yet. There are a **** ton of parks at every corner of the city though. James Madison University is in the city, so my guess is the pickup games will pick up once the college kids come back
