I agree San Diego's weather does put Phoenix's to shame,its more comfortable and easy to relax in in San Diego,I would rather have Denvers weather over Phoenix and maybe even Seattle,well maybe not,I would go crazy without sun all the time.

i don't think anyone in san diego has ever been killed by a shark along its coast. if im wrong, find me an article. as a matter of fact, only 1 or 2 people in the recorded history of the california coastline have ever been killed by a shark. again, if im wrong, let me know cuz im confident im not.

yes, the water is cold on many days, but the east coast doesn't have waves and you get use to mildly cold water quick especially with a wet suit on.

lastly, i've been surfing for 3-4 years now and have stepped on a couple of sting rays, but have never been stung by one, and i've lived in san diego all my life!

almost every year? try ONLY 2003 and 2007, and these events were unprecedented which means the city will be more equipped and better prepared next time it happens. so your "almost every year" comment is ignorant.

also, downtown san diego is NOT the only portion that is protected from wild fires, try almost ALL of san diego with the exception of communities in the outskirts that border chaparral along the east metro area, and that's only 1/6th of the county's population and home total, hence, which is why only 500,000 of the county's 3,000,000 residents were asked to evacuate, which i was one of them i admit (never had to evacuate in my 23 years of life, all in san diego), but most of the homes that were asked to evacuate were only for precautionary reasons, even when no REAL threat existed.

people like to use the wildfire thing as an attack on san diego's image but seriously, what city is safe these days? whether it's crime, collapsing bridges, tornadoes, airplanes into buildings, fires, hurricanes, floods, school/church/mall shootings, earthquakes, bombs, blizzards, heatwaves, deep freezes, no where is ever totally safe!

Its normally 75-80 degrees in July in San Diego. Thats perfect. Absolutely perfect. In the meantime, Phoenix is already 2.5 to 3 months into solid 100 degree plus readings with 2.5 to 3 MORE months of 100 degrees to go. Everyone knows that San Diego's weather is far superior to Phoenix's. And San Diego doesnt get nearly as cold as Phoenix either.

While not many fatalities, thats still plenty of attacks and plenty scary for me!

If anyone would like facts, rather than Steve-O's exaggerations, about 100 degree weather in Phoenix, here's a good link.
