Default From a mud hole here I come!

I am happy to say that I will be moving from the cold, cloudy, rainy city....Seattle, to Las Vegas this summer. This weather has finally gotten to me, so bad in fact that I am depressed and angry, think I might have SAD. I will be coming to search neighborhoods and get ideas on where I want to live. I've been reading numerous posts here re: others relocating. Thank you all so much for the input, it has helped me. I am looking forward to living in the sunshine!! That's all I can think about

Pink is wise to caution you in general about the summer heat.

And in particular I will add that I moved here in mid-June. Not the best time to do so, and it only gets progressively hotter through September. The heat this past summer was consistently intense. Just so you know...

Other than that, glad your psyched about moving into the sunshine. Your entire outlook will change for the better. Good for you!!

Yes, the summer heat wears on you... From mid-May through mid-September, we had only two or three days with highs below 100, with most days breaching 110.

Doesn't the Pac NW has the highest rate of suicide? I hear its because of the lack of sunshine.

We have about three months of over 100 degrees. When that 3rd month rolls around you can't wait for the cool down. Now in the middle of January, I can't wait for the big warm up!

In Sunrise Manor, there were MANY days over 112 and ones that hit 117 or 118. Mind you, other than regarding the freakin' electric bill, I'm not complaining. I'm just saying that the East Washington area seems to be one of the hotter ones.

Looks like Nv holds yet another distinction: Google Answers: Suicide rates per state for last 5-10 years

I knew that Las Vegas was the highest in suicide and divorce. I think what I read was Seattle had a high number of depression cases. I do not remember where I read that but it was some sort of study.
