more like 24/7 rain, gray and cloud in the winter, kinda like some parts of the UK...I lived in the PNW and have a best friend in OR....persoanlly I could not take it, to me it felt cold because of the dampness, I just couldn't get warm even inside...summers were also too cold for me (in the Seattle area)

No it was not a boring question at all, and I also wish you luck. I wish I could help you with places, but I have more than enough trouble finding them for myself.

You've all been very helpful - many thanks indeed.

It's the humidity that gets me more than anything, I can handle heat if it's fresh and maybe with a light breeze but I can't barely move on a humid day - you know that claustraphobic heat where you sweat even sitting down?!

So, to recap . . .

Blazing sun is not a requisite, neither is a near-total lack of rain.

High humidity (summer or winter) and heavy snowfalls are definite NOs

I also seek somewhere where grass and shrubs can grow, not total desert.

Maybe they didn't discover "my place" yet!

There is no place in the U.S. that fits your requirements. There is the climate you seek in California, but not the home set-up, at least not in the same place.

I do know one place that would have everything you want: Nice, or anywhere around it. But Nice is in France.

Don't even consider Florida... Too hot and humid in the summer. Wonderful winter weather though. Right now Florida is on SALE.. (very low home prices) Good Luck in your search..

Las Vegas offers the driest of the dry. The 2nd driest city in the country.
Drier, less humidity than Phoenix and Tucson. And you can have your plants and bushes here as well. If you want your extra acreage, you might try Pahrump, 58 miles from Las Vegas, a community of 30-35,000.
