No... as even i will not play hoops outside when it's above 90 but i love the hot temps for the day as it feels good in general and also i love to swim. Also it feels good to run my fan next to me at night in the summer (it puts me to sleep) as right now i freeze at night when i run my fan.

I've lived here for 10 months and I like it.
The weather is nice, the scenery is nice and it just seems like a peaceful place to live.

I used to do that too. What you can do now is run your fan but turn it the other way.

What is it like....well, I was born in Santa Fe and have lived in lots of different places.
I love the weather and the views and the food is fab, but I have had culture shock too. And I say that after living in South America and experiencing it there. NM has many great features but things are done in a very slow and inefficient manner, which makes life hard when you need something done.
I am not complaining as I have adjusted to my culture shock. To be fair, I was also warned that there is a slow pace feel and there is really no hurry (to anything).

Is there alot of "red tape" you have to go through?

So how would the culture of New Mexico differ from the culture of Indiana?

I cannot handle hot stuff myself, there are some experts in this forum who could give you chile' advice.

As for me, every time I drive by the chile' shacks in hatch, all I have to do is look at them and I get the sweats.
