Hello there! We have never been to Charleston, but my husband and I and two children were thinking about visiting, and even possibly relocating to the area. We have done some research and it sounds wonderful and lovely in so many ways! However, when we mention these plans to some of our fellow Oregonians (some of whom formerly lived in the South) we are often met with horror-stricken stares and comments about mosquitos which eat you alive, summer humidity that leaves your body and clothing drenched, and hurricanes which too often force you to evacuate your home! I would just love to hear your comments - and it would be most interesting to hear from anyone who actually moved from California or Oregon to the Charleston area. Thank you very much for any input!
