can you handle DRY COLD? I love Minnesota .. snow and cold of course and lots of it in the wintertime but the spring summers and fall are just awesome and not to humid .. jobs are here its fairly liberal and easy to find a comfort zone of friends and like minded folks ..

I'm here because my kids are but if I were in your shoes I would check this area out as well for the same reasons .. used to live in se Mo and hated the wet heat and wet cold the wet winters in the PNW were hell on my back and hips so dry climate of the north is worth the look at imo

I would keep looking in NM, maybe farther from a major city to find more affordable housing. Phoenix is nice but it does get scorching hot. I just returned home from there and I don't care what anyone says 115 is not any more bearable than 80 with 100 percent humidity. You must stay indoors either way. NM is way more liberal and offers a great art and cultural community. Northern CA would be another option for a more liberal area but then there is the CA price tag....
