Every place has its own smell

Vicksburg smelled like mold.  With the surrounding forests, the swamp climate and the fact that things never really got cold, there was a constant state of decay surrounding the place, which meant that the leaf mold never stopped.

Ever.

Virginia smells....  fresh.

If it weren't for the gawd-awful taxes here, I'd consider moving here when I retire.  But I won't give that much of my income to the government, and the business climate here is, well, crappy outside of the major urban areas.  There are lots of things I love about Virginia, but in my opinion it's outweighed by the high taxes and the control of the state by liberal bat-shit crazy NoVa and VA Beach.

Still, I do love to visit my friends here.
