Me too. Maybe you’ll like my picture of Rockford Park in Wilmington, DE taken on Saturday:

Yes, that it what I am talking about! So gorgeous! I lived up in the Northeast for a while and loved the quietness of the parks in the winter. No one around, snow covered trees, so gorgeous and underrated!

Denver is a nice city weather wise with lots of great recreation nearby. Definitely would consider it if they got more cloud coverage throughout the year and more rain! Can't stand the dry weather - waking up parched every morning and worrying about carrying extra water on the trails.

Well said. Give me some rain.

Agreed. Heat, thunderstorms, and rain are awesome. Cold, snow, and ice, not so much.

Many (perhaps most?) northerners hope each year for a white Christmas. My work friend and got a kick out of someone from San Francisco who said it didnít feel like Christmas unless it was raining.

I meant throughout the year, not necessarily Xmas.

Didn’t assume you did. I like a broad variety of weather, hence my preference for a 4 season climate. The one thing I miss about Houston weather are the epic downpours and thunderstorms that fire up quickly and move on. I’m not sure I’m missing it so much any more, however. Houston has had serious flooding in each of the last 3 years and conditions are in place that favor more in the coming years.

Flipping things, it rare that Houston has a rainy day. Those I missed. Rainy days are a good days to stay inside and read or practice some other form of lethargy. As I said, it’s generally all sturm und drang then it moves on about as quickly as it came.

You know what actually does suck about winter up north? Static shocks!

Those dark stormy days change the overall mood. I love reading a good book, having an old-fashioned board game day with my husband, or simply enjoying the storm from the deck. The simple things in nature are most valuable, and thus, the appeal of moving out of Phoenix! The changes in weather really make the entire year more exciting and give you more to look forward to. I want to see different sights throughout the year, look forward to new activities, and look forwarding to changing weather patterns. I want to go to a park in the summer and have it look completely different in the fall and winter. Heck, I even love seeing barren winter trees.

Fall is an incredible time of year. I love crisp cool days where the sunlight makes the golden and red foliage stand out even in more in comparison to the green leaves. A perfect day of hiking in cool temps (cool enough for say a light North face jacket) followed by a a trip to a local coffeehouse for a cup of tea or coffee by the fire. Oh do I miss that!!
Give it some time. Phoenix gets cold at night in winter. Expect many nights in the 30s.


The best part about winters here? No snow to shovel. No slippery roads. No rusted cars. No frostbite. No black ice. No gasping for air as sub zero wind chills suck the air out of your lungs. No scraping ice from car windows. No slipping on ice.
