Default Stop hating on Arizona

Seriously, Arizona is a wonderful state and people treat it like crap, oh I know why "too hot, too humid, boring, and just plain nothingness." That's not always true. In some parts of Arizona, it snows, yeah don't believe me...


Now ya see it.

Also, it's not boring, there's tons of things to do there, especially in nature. White water rafting, horseback riding, sightseeing, and plenty more.

While it is hot the rest of the year, at least it's a dry heat. Try living in Southwest Florida for 8 years in 90F temperatures and 95% humidity all-year round, after that, you'd probably be running to Arizona if it was your only choice.

So yeah, give Arizona more credit, it's an amazing state and I got accepted into college there, but decided to go to school in Georgia, but I was accepted in Arizona before I got accepted in Georgia, then I would've gone to Arizona. But who cares, that's another story.

End rant.

Thanks for the state compliments. Moderator cut: rude comments

Who says AZ is "too humid"? lol

As for FL, its not 90 with 95% humidity. In summer, peak humidity during peak temps usually floats around 55-60%, which is incredibly steamy, but definitely not 95%, that would make the heat index too unbearable to live in. And besides, Miami always has that awesome breeze off the ocean that makes it quite comfy, unless youre further inland when it turns into a sauna. Right now its a perfect 72 degrees with 80% humidity (which you cant feel that much because the temps are lower) and high today will be 81 with 60% humidity, which is how it normally is. Ahhh, what I wouldnt give to be on a beach sippin on a PBR under a palm while staring at crystal clear blue water. You just cannot beat south Florida in teh winter, its perfect. Their summers suck supreme, though.

Anyways, regarding your post, yes, AZ is lovely, one of my favorite states. It just sucks that PHX has to kill the valley though. W/o PHX, Id be half tempted to move there. It just sucks that Id have to resort to PHX as my "main city", I cant stand it. But I love many burbs there, some are heaven-on-earth (Carefree, Cave Creek, N. Scottsdale, Fountain Hills).

AZ is an awesome state - it seems to have just about everything, including whatever kind of weather you want. I love it there. Awesome picture, by the way - what part of AZ is it?

Default Just sayin'

Well, not EVERYONE likes Arizona.
I've never heard or seen anyone "treat it like crap" on this site. I've read some harsh truths, but that's anywhere.
I don't particularly love it here, but it's just not my taste.
I still pick up trash off the ground when I can (and Prescott needs all the help it can get with that, have you seen the parking lots lately? Ewww.), I support local shops, I take care of what I have here & what AZ has to offer.
BUT while I am here, I will pick out the things that I do & do not favor & I will speak truthfully of both.
