Hmm.. you probably wont enjoy summertime soccer games unless they are extremely early in the AM. And you won't be walking too much here either besides to your mailbox, since everything requires a car where you can turn on the A/C too.

I would say the wooziness factor can be kept to an absolute minimum as long as you don't go "running around barefoot" LOL!

There are some positives associated with the heat, too. There's a reason elders flock to retirement developments in Arizona and Florida - that heat can feel good on old bones.

Plus, as you get older if you live in the north, you have to worry about slipping on an icy sidewalk or driveway and taking a bad fall. Breaking your hip as an older person can start a whole chain of health problems.

I speak as a Phoenix native, though. Our weather seems very natural to me - I love the heat and I love the change of cold and rainy days. In life as in music, it's all about rhythm.

When it is dry here it doesnt bother me at all but its the humidity thats bad and I dont remember arizona humidity in the 60% and higher bracket. I remember one summer the natives were complaining of the humidity and it was only 13%. I couldnt believe it. I think our lowest humidity here is in the 40% which is rare, the average is 60% or higher so the cold goes through your bones and the heat makes you whoozy...

I'm not trying to make you hate it before you get here, just take note of how 13% humidity feels when its over 100* outside. When its that hot, no humidity is welcome, and it doesnt feel so dry anymore.

You should probably be more concerned with the air quality than the heat in Phoenix.

Yep.

Gotta dust a lot here.

No carpeting for me, thank you very much.

You can't keep that stuff clean.

But, we still wear shorts at night....

No shorts here for now at 44...had to pull out an Alaska hoodie yesterday, but I still go sit outside with my coffee in the morning...amazing how warm the sun is at 44 degrees and 8 or 9 a.m. I have given up on being a dust fanatic short of once or twice a week, and the carpet is going to be history soon
