I went there yesterday to get a water heater at Lowes, it was windy, but I stayed on the ground! Wind beats snow anyday!

New walmart is being built now opposite Lowes . . .

You can sit out in the back yard in Sierra Vista as long as you strap yourself in.
You can tell a Newbie, they put up Christmas lights.

It depends where in SV you are. Some parts are quite windy, some aren't. It hasn't been an issue for me.

That is not true. I have lived in Sierra Vista for four years. It does not get that windy. And yes, we put up Christmas lights every year and have never had an issue. I also can sit in my backyard and enjoy our pool without "strapping" myself down to anything. Yes we can have high winds, but it's not an everyday occurrence.

Thanks for backing me up. I often hear about the "wind", but have never thought it very bad. Yes, there are days/nights that get very windy, but anywhere you go will have those. I just don't understand those who paint it as a constant problem. Maybe it is because there isn't much else to complain about here

I live on the hill behind the mall and the wind is a problem here. I can't put anything out that weighs less than 30 pounds. Every Wednesday my idiot neighbors pack their recycling to overflow and since i live at the end of the street the overflow is on my lawn. I wasn't "complaining" I was responding to an inquiry, if you want to deny me an opinion then perhaps the problem is yours
