I love the weather. Even on gray/rainy days, because they happen so few and far between I think I love them even more. (I'm a fan of rain anyway) So weather. And (kind of along the same lines) I love that we have mountains, beach, forest, desert, snow, orchards, vineyards, all within driving distance.

OMG....you are not strange. I feel the same about earthquakes. They use to terrify me when I was a kid but now, they are quite exciting. (As long as I know everyone is safe). Keep in mind I live in a very remote area in a single level home. Not in a high rise in San Francisco or LA...that would be scary!!

I love California because my kids were born here, I was born here, my parents were born here and my grandparents on one side were born here. It's home and always will be. I am within a short drive of the ocean, beautiful mountains, redwoods, etc. I am very lucky to live in such a wonderful place.

I love that we have an international reputation. California is a leader among nations, not just other states!

We rock! (Earthquakes aside, I mean!)

No way to sum it up with just 'one reason' - I love the diversity, the environment, mountains, deserts, beaches, the opportunities and the way it just feels like an optimistic place!

Hands down, the ocean. But I love Redwood trees. I love our climate, (and no tornados, hurricanes)

I think one of my favorite things about California is something I learned in Junior High - the number of completely different ecologies we have here. (Looking it up on Wikipedia, it says California spans six ecoregions.) From where I live, in less than a day's driving I can go from desert to beach to redwood forest to sierra snowpack to wine county to hilly chapparal.

I'm also a tad strange, but maybe it is being a native, because I like earthquakes. My reaction is usually excitement. Certainly they can be devastating, but so can any act of nature - and where I live we get a lot of littler ones that just remind us we have fault lines in the area.

Give me one reason why!

For me, it's the wonderfully diverse cultures! Especially in LA, everywhere you turn is someone from a different background!
