It's not everyday. July and August in Phoenix still see 85% possible sun, and avg rainfall both months is 1" each

And far too many days of 110 and over temps. God awful.

Yes, but it covers everything in dust, which must be cleaned up afterwards. At least snow melts.

Here is a more serious concern.

Persons that I know who have moved to the Southwest, even the Greater Denver area, miss green.

Having lived in North Carolina and Florida, consider whether you would miss the lush greenness of the eastern U.S.

But on the flip side, we don't get the snow and cold Albuquerque does in the winter! Our COLDEST day of the winter is warmer than a NORMAL day in Albuquerque in December or January. Nuff said

I have wondered about Albuquerque too and what it would be like there. New Mexico is pretty similar to Arizona, isn't it? But now for Flagstaff, it would be greener. For me it's also about the people, and how welcoming they would be to newcomers. I guess Savannah would be a lot like here, and a place like Charleston would be too. There is that Southern Hospitality thing, but that's the surface type of friendliness. When I lived in Ohio, I found the people to be more sincere. I met some neighbors there and some people through the church choir too that always included me during the holidays as they knew I was alone. I don't know if they're still like that, but I have a feeling they are. I only visited old friends of my mom's in Scottsdale, so I didn't get the chance to mingle with people there.
