It's just weird. I grew up near Oakland and never once heard anyone, anywhere, refer to it as the Pacific Northwest. And I've lived in the Northwest since 1996 and everyone knows you don't include any part of California in that description. You're talking OR, WA, ID, MT and maybe WY, depending on who you talk with. No one in their right mind calls any part of California the Pacific Northwest; it's the West Coast. Just thought it was funny.
