1. Locals grew up composting.
That green bin you drag to the sidewalk is state mandated for compost. Oh, you didn’t grow up composting at home and at restaurants? You must not be from California. Californian locals have been composting their banana peels for years and are waiting for the rest of you to get your act together.
2. Transplants miss the leaves changing and the first snowfall. Locals say, “huh, seasons?”
Sure, it snows in some parts of the state, but most of California is exempt from real seasons — unless you count June gloom or the months that are more foggy than others. It’s sometimes hard to track time without changing leaves or snowfall…but only if you’re not from here.
