East vs. West

By in Washington with 0 Comments

My husband grew up in Pennsylvania, and I was raised in California.  When we first met, he said some pretty funny things – he called hamburger buns, “hamburger rolls”, he asked for Hellman’s mayonnaise instead of Best Foods.  He also referred to the East coast of the country as ‘the right coast’, meaning right-hand side of the map, of course, but also a subtle dig as to the “incorrect” way we did things out West.

Now we live in Washington state – on the east side of the Cascades, and I find myself making jokes about being right!  It works here because the majority of eastern Washingtonians are registered Republicans, or at least lean to the conservative side of the spectrum.

I have been giggling for the past couple months every time I pass one of these signs –

East Side Sign

I don’t actually think the west side out-and-out stole the election, but they sure as heck didn’t win it hands down, either.

This piece from the AP, by way of KEPR does a nice job of stating the case about how some of us feel about our current Governor and potential Governor.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
