By Gerry D : Updated Jul 20, Seriously, do not move here. It was hard at first, living in Portland Oregon, getting used to more food options, friendlier people, lack of crime, an abundance of creativeness, and all of the beer. Anyways, now that I am here living in Portland, I have realized there are many reasons not to move to Portland, so I thought I would share them with you all.
Now a days you need a gas mask! One of the biggest current reasons not to move to Portland, the local Government has no control or authority. They are spineless. They can not help you. The coward mayor has even been pushed out of his home. This is not about BLM. Many came in from out of town just for this main event, this festival of riots.
This endless party. We are only concerned about how long and how much it will get to take the police to make a move on us so we can record it and cry victim. I would not these homeless kids and heroin addicts in Portland, not a chance in hell. Occupy was about Obama and Joe Biden bailing out big banks.
Residents are fleeing big cities like Portland during the pandemic. Jobs are gone, governors are shutting down small business operated and owned by residents while supporting protestors. Soon enough Portland will be a massive tent city.
Yes, of course. And a LOT more than what is reported. As you know Portland is mostly lower to middle-class strugglers who lack proper healthcare which means they are NOT getting tested. They can not afford to take off work. Of course one could say this about every major city in America right now, so carry-on. The choice is yours. It is nothing to mess around with. The media has only told you a small portion of the truth. You might not die from it this week, month, or even year. But it will work a on your insides, even if you had mild symptoms.
I actually moved out of Portland after 2. Keep reading for details and what grand city I moved to. Or should I say dead giveaway? OK, so now you know but still keep reading because Portland sucks. No one ever told my Californian ass that Portland had dangerous poisonous spiders that can and will invade your house. The rest of these reasons just are not poisonous house invading spiders.
The end-all. And yes, it does snow. I want to say this is true, but it is not. The summer is scorching and sunny. However, the Fall, Winter, and Spring can face many days of cloud cover and lots of wet days. It might not even be real rain, just endless miserable drizzle. Spranks, endless spranks. Kind of like living in the Outer Sunset in San Francisco, perma drizzle.
Seriously, most of the East Coast gets more rain, snow, and colder temperatures. So honestly, Portland has perfect weather. No complaints here. I do miss how mild the Winter was in the Bay Area but can survive here. As far as the cloudy days go, it is said that Portland averages cloudy days a year. They lack that natural sunlight, become Anyone want to move Portland and blame the clouds.
I know someone with one, and she likes it. The earthquake that will knock part of the coast into the Pacific Ocean and crumble every old bridge from Northern California to Vancouver, Canada. A great reason to stay far away from Portland or the entire Pacific Northwest. Not cloudy, just sunny and hot.
I lived in 3 separate houses in Portland, and none of them had an air conditioner.
But, it gets freezing cold too! I felt 17 degrees who knows with wind chill for the first time in my life in December The months from November to February reach many below-freezing days and only rarely make it to a high 50 degrees in the day. And all this cold weather rarely brings snow. I did have to buy thermal underwear for the first time in my life. I became a huge fan and bought several more pairs, bottoms, and tops.
Pretty perfect comfy winter clothing. It did snow a little this Winter though. Be sure to follow me on Instagram! It snowed a whole lot in early Global cooling is starting to expose itself.
Portland is the only major US city to reject fluoridated water. Not once but 4 times since For many, this is a plus but for many others, this is a negative. How do you feel about it? Do you want the government adding chemicals to your water for your benefit? Do you trust that they would spend billions for you in that sense or do you think there is a bigger picture? The water in Portland also tastes supreme.
I wonder if it is fluoride that gives other cities that weird thick filmy taste? Meaning rent prices are skyrocketing as the supply runs low and the demand keeps growing. There is no rent control here in Portland, so your landlord can raise your rent by ANY dollar amount at any given time.
Local residents love to blame Californians for rising rents and forget the fact that it is Oregon born landlords deciding what prices to charge when renting out units. This city will push people out much faster than the gentrifying Bay Area because there is no rent control and the original Oregon based landlords are greedy. And to top it off, all of the new buildings are high dollar yupster command centers without parking garages putting more strain on the city.
We do need new units, just not these kinds. Of course, the other problem is all of these anti-transplant Portland characters refuse to let the past go. They will protest the hell out of an old janky bar with no business getting demolished when that plot of land can be used for newer, bigger, better housing units Anyone want to move Portland then cry that there are no new housing units. Pick your battles, let the past go.
The past is what holds a city back. Look at San Francisco and learn from their mistake. Build up and a lot now while you still can. Also, realize it is the business owners decision, and they own the old useless building. They are choosing to sell for a profit so they can move out of Portland and retire. Are you getting it yet?Anyone want to move Portland
