Headaches and itchy eyes is not I call a healthy lifestyle. You obviously have higher tolerance for dryness.

The IE doesn't seem coastal at, all. its very similar to San Fernando Valley, no coastal feel to it, they just feel landlocked with mountains on three sides.

Lol. That's funny. Because when I was much much younger I used to look at the mountains and think that all land ended there and there was just one big ocean past it or space or something.

But we will go with Arizona.

It's March for God's sake. Let's give it a rest already since this has to do with 2 months ago.

It's hard to explain, but the dry weather puts you, at least me, in a different mindset than in a humid tropical climate. I was born in Tampa, spent my whole life there, I know the lifestyle and people all too well.

When you go outside on a clear desert night and see thousands of stars, you can't help to wonder what the heck is going on in the universe. You ponder questions that there are no answers too. I only wish I had some hallucinogenic materials to help me gain some knowledge.

Florida, it's more about relaxing, don't think too hard. Just enjoy your pina colada and steel drum music. Although 22 years ago in Boca Raton I scored some decent LSD, went to the beach at night and climbed into the lifeguard stand. Man I just zoned out! It was nice.

I'm sure they are different places. Just saying that low humidity in the air is uncomfortable to me.

So thread seems to have died. Much closer than I thought the original outcome would be. I thought for sure the snowbirds would have voted Miami way further ahead.
