Bear in mind altitude, it changes the whole equation.

You could buy a house up in Kyle Canyon, 35 miles north of downtown Las Vegas, and at 7700 feet in altitude, it never gets above 85 degrees up there.
But you'll freeze to death in winter.

Or Flagstaff AZ or Santa Fe NM at 7000 feet. Doesn't get over 85 degrees in the summertime there in either place.

And never neglect the humidity/heat/feel factor. When it hits 110 degrees here in Las Vegas in summer with 5-10% humidity and I want to "cool off" I just look at the temp's across the southern U.S. or the eastern seaboard and factoring in heat and humidity, it cools me off immediately.

And if you really want to cool off in the middle of summer for a few weeks, go SOUTH, my friend, all the way to Argentina or Chile or Australia where the seasons are reversed. Summer here, winter there, summer there, winter here.

That's what I've been saying. OK is hot, VERY hot, but the humidity is much lower than NJ in the summer. I would rather be able to get out of the heat by sitting in the shade than being unable to go ANYWHERE that you can breathe. Sometimes in NJ and other high humidity places you feel like you're swimming as you walk aroound.

Absolutely. I find it bearable here for short periods of time, at least. It wasn't at all in the humidity in SC or even Maine. And anyone here in OK talking about humidity I pretty much laugh, cuz on weather.com it says something like 10-25%, the highest I've seen is 40% I dont even think it EVER gets that low on the east coast. But anyone who makes a living landscaping or building or whatever... man, I feel bad for them! I couldn't do it. But it was the same with Maine winters, I couldn't work outside in below zero temps like my Dad has to.

I just checked weatherunderground. It's nearly 97 here now, supposed to hit 103. But the humidity is 45%. STL is only 78 degrees, but the humidity is 92%. I like this better. I don't much enjoy feeling like I'm breathing water.

Well, today the heat wave in Stillwater that I was complaining about is broken. It rained close to an inch and a half last night. And now as of the noon hour it's only 85 instead of nearly 100. Maybe if you didn't get the change in weather last night you'll have it coming to you tonight.
