The best of both worlds. It's been hovering around the 30's at night, some light snow, and the 50's or 40's during the day. A bit nippy, for sure-but tolerable. It's only a few months anyhow...

Here's why:

1. Hoas. Seems like the greater phoenix area have been buffalo'd by hoa groups. I don't like hoas, i don't like hoas, i don't like hoas!!! Period!! And won't ever live in one.

2. High auto insurance costs. Up to 4 times what it costs in florida.

3. Speeding harassment via speeding cameras and speed traps.

4. Matchbox communities. I'm buying a 1600 square foot house on 5 wooded acres in florida for 120k. Couldn't find anything like that in phoenix.

So, for now, i'm saving a visit to phoenix for just that, a visit. I think the quality of life in phoenix is not what i thought.

ok
