I do dread the cooling bills, and I doubt you're a barn animal. lol We all sweat are butts off in this summer heat, it's the devils tit. I see the "Phoenix-data squad" has shot you like a monkey in a barrel.
Most people just bare through the summer hear to enjoy the winter, those of us who can't summer in another cooler part of the country. lol The military is hard work, and I hope you find a better place to be stationed soon. I for one hope you feel free to vent on here, thats what it's for. Not everyone has been on here long enough to be sick of it. lol

My issue is the darn clouds. I'll take a high of zero and sunny over 30 and cloudy. It's cloudy well over 1/2 the days in the winter especially Jan and Feb. When it is cold AND cloudy that is really tough to take. Like anything, it wears on you over the years. I am sure hot summers wear on people in the south. At this point in my life, give me the sun!

You would love Denver, CO. 300+ sunny days per year on average. Cool, dry summers with average temps in the 70's and 80's. We get a couple of days over 90 degrees and that's it. Plus, it always cools off at night.

And despite the common myth, we have very mild winters. It snows one day and is sunny and 50 degrees the next. Sunny and warm with fresh powder snow is just beautiful.

I've lived in Phoenix and Tucson as well and I personally didn't enjoy the 7 months of summer. To each their own I suppose.

I don't mind the summer weather.. just the bills from the weather.

Do people say they love the summer actually keep their homes at 90 degrees or something?

Although I prefer temps in the 50 - 80 degree range, everyone is entitled to there own feelings on the weather here. As someone stated earlier, it's fun to watch people try to downplay the heat.

You think we should trade places then? Its a sunny 77 degrees here in L.A. now But I don't know if you'd be able to afford CA.

Sounds perfect but we will be moving back to the country in Wisconsin after retirement in a couple of years.

It's fun to watch people try to downplay the cold, snow and endless grayness of a Wisconsin winter, too.

I prefer the same range myself. That is why I want to live in San Diego (if I could afford it). I have to ask why you would want to go to a hell hole like Wisconsin that actually has a much worse temperature range than Phoenix?
