you'll feel it if you pay attention...just a riffle of breeze as the sun drops behind the mountain.

And no matter how many years I go through it, summer never gets easier.

Can't believe all these people who want to move her don't realize how this all wears on you. I have lived in a handful of other places and this is off the charts negative with zero community spirit. But there is a reason why such a large percentage who move here eventually leave.
Anyplace wears on you after awhile. Usually about 10 years in one place wears on people. But I am curious- how many people that move there do leave? I would not think it would be that many.

More importantly, how many that do move...move back?

I have heard that a large percentage of Americans die within 100 miles of where they were born. They might move around the country during their lives (who has NOT lived in California?) but eventually they end up pretty much where they grew up or were born.

I was there for about ten years and left. However it was more the horror of working for the Clark County School District than Las Vegas itself that caused me to leave. That's not to say that I didn't tire of graffiti, traffic, smog, gas prices....

I miss my friends and my house. I miss the beautiful views, the mild winters and the sunshine. I don't think I'll ever move back though as CCSD is the only game in town. I will be visiting though.

The majority of people do live and die within 100 miles of where they were born. And the other 30% of us move far far away and never look back.

If your kids are seeing ghosts everywhere you go, you are all just being haunted. It does not mean that every place you go is haunted. You have one or more ghosts following you. Like you said, negative energies attach themselves to certain personalities...

I can lick it though, I am originally from Connecticut where temperatures in the teens is normal
Yes the average high is about 55, but sometimes it can be lower. I think at least half of Dec/Jan the temperature is only at upper 40s or lower 50s.
When the wind picks up I feel much colder and that's the time I need to wear my thick jacket.

In LA, even in Dec/Jan, when the sun comes out, the tempeature in the day is at least mid-60s, most likely in lower 70s. And there is almost no wind at all. I always turned on my a/c when I was driving. I would say at least 80% of the time I wore short sleeve in the day , and and a very thin jacket at night.

People coming from Southern California should know what I am talking about. Vegas is 15 degrees colder in winter, and 15 degrees hotter in summer.

Of course they see ghost everywhere they go, ghosts are hallucinations.

We even have days here in Florida it will be 80-89 degrees in January and February if any of that warm humid caribbean air gets blown our way. I love those days

Regardless of how cold or hot Vegas gets. Im ready for whatever mother nature and the mojave desert can dish out on me

I hear its beautiful there in March, when I will be visiting
