    no different than Illinois. The wackos generally stick to the cities. There are regular Americans in most of the region, which is covered up in ducks....also top notch craft beer and Dungeness crab try that too when you are out there.

    Do they still have the 55mph speed limit? The whole can’t pump your own gas? Like most of the left coast I thought it was a pretty area.....and that’s it. Other then that I didn’t care for the state. BUT I would take it over Illinois.

    Place is still awful. The beer is great and Dungeness crab are the best though.
    Got Antifa on every other street corner, homeless folks on the other.
    Rains 100” a year.
    I’m about ready to move to Mo, Ark, or La and bring my Liberal ways with me. Talk about the Mecca of waterfowling! Bo, it’s epic down there.

    That said from someone from the land of George Floyd. Yea, I know, you aren't from the Twin Cities, but we are both from a land where our metropolitan areas overshadow the rest of the state.

    There was a time when only small grains such as wheat, barley and rye, were grown in the dakotas and south central Canada. In the past 25-30 years, soybeans and corn have taken their place. The latter need more rain.

    Our snowstorm has started up here, the rain started last night. There is anywhere from 10-25 cm forcasted for next two days. Ducks and farmers need all of that and more.

    For sure the driest spring ever while hunting snows the last few weeks.
