goldenstateofmind,

cali and miami are very expensive too.

i think one of the reasons is because of the "good" weather and access to beaches

I dont know if living in that expensive of a place would be worth it to me because i am would be paying for beaches and beaches as a whole dont interest me

No, I have a home on 10 acres at the base of the Superstition Mountain. My "landscaping" is natural.

However, I have owned properties with grass and such - and yes, I hired people to take care of it weekly.

My lands! Cooling down to the high 70s... I was in LA last month and it was 75-80ish and it was way too hot for me! My family from Yuma were there also and they were constantly cold.

It was over 80 here in Southern Oregon today and reminded me why I live in the Pacific Northwest. Almost never too cold or too hot to be outside and doing things. I mean, it does get over 100, but it's manageable, even enjoyable, because it isn't for very long stretches. 7 degrees for a month? 115 degrees for a month? No thank you. I have never experienced anything weather-wise that cold or hot in my life, and I'm perfectly okay with it thus far.

High 70s by this weekend? According to whom? All of the weather stations are predicting temperatures above 90 degrees until next Monday. This really isn't even record heat either. Last week we had a very cool high of only 67 degrees, this week we'll see 100. Average the two together, and you'll pretty much be on target for our average temperature this time of year, which I believe is 87 or 88.

What is everyones obsession with living in a oven for all 12 months out of the year?

Do you guys not want to have seasons?
I don't think that there are any places in the United States that are ovens for 12 months of the year. The warmest winter temperatures are found in South Florida, with most days seeing highs between 70 and 80 degrees. Southern California and Arizona can see very chilly weather during the winter, with highs only in the 50s and lows in the 30s and 40s.

Some people have a higher tolerance for the heat. I wonder why someone would want to have to bundle up just to check their mailbox. Just because someone wants warmth doesn't mean they can't have seasons. Many Southern places have 3 seasons (some even have 4, although winter is much more mild and tolerable than the North).

Where is it an oven in the U.S. all year long? I don't think there is such a place. Here in Houston it gets really hot between June and Septemper. But the rest of the year is pretty mild.

Miami fits perfectly into what I would call a oven 12 months out of the year.

EXACTLY. I do not want to live in a place that is 70 degrees in the winter.

I expect to see snow in the winter
