LOL I spent a winter in Cave Creek once. Is the HOrny Toad and the Treehouse still around?

It's hot here.

Yeah but I'll be glad to be coming back in the fall too. The gloom of SE winters is just something I don't want to do anymore

I can't blame ya Met for wanting to be out of some of the gloom of winter. Though up here, this past winter was great, compared to what I'm use to, there was much much less snow, heck of a lot more sunshine, and all but 2 weeks, a bit milder. It was a refreshing change for sure.

I've always found the winters up there easier to take than the ones in SE. They days are shorter, but the quality of them is better....more sun, and the night skies are so much better. And I can be a bit of a cold freak; I do love -40 sometimes. The gloom of SE though in the winter didn't used to bother me so much, but anymore it really does.

I prefer Haines winters to the ones up here.

Haines doesn't get nearly the gloom that POW does. I've heard winters there are pretty okay.

I don't think i could take the Southeast. I don't mind cold and dark winters, but I don't think I could take the wet, gray, rainy weather Southeast Alaska gets...

Horny Toad is still there but the Treehouse is some touristy shop selling those god awful gecko's and kokopelli's to fat mid-westerners. What a waste. Have a great summer, I'll crack open an Alaskan Summer Ale this afternoon in your honor.
