But if you really stop and think about it, there are dozens of gargantuan reasons why living here is absolutely off the hook (as Guy Fieri would say – he’s also from Northern California, by the way).

So, for those of you thinking somewhere else is way better, here’s a few reasons why you can be grateful you’re already here.
