Absolutely.  I feel the only people who really get this are in this. 

By the way I’m originally from Oregon. Born and raised in Klamath. 

Move to Ca in 79, Stockton area, the to Az in Feb 18. I retired in 11/17 but Tom did not want to and was working from home for the company he worked for in Stockton. Unfortunately he died 6 months later. My older sister and mom live here, and he really wanted us in Az Incase anything ever happened to him. We never had kids, and I had no family in Ca. After my post on Tuesday, which I always share will all the friends in Ca, one said yesterday you should move back. Well, that will never happen
