It's not that way in the U.S. I'm glad I'm an American

You need to rethink that last sentence.

You need to rethink that last sentence.
You need to reinterpret it less literally.

And yes, I know, Flagstaff is the second snowiest city in the US, after Buffalo. And Amarillo gets a couplem blizzards every year. But there are lots of retirement places in those stastes that are not Flagstaff or Amarillo. Places where it "never snows" means places where you look forward to the occasional snow to write home about..

In other words, you don't choose FL or TX or AZ retirement locations according to which one gets the fewest snow days per dedcade, because at all three, the number rounds off to zero. I lived in Florida for two years and Texas for ten, and never saw snow standing on the grouind more than a couple of hours.

Is there a site that utilizes factors (that you can search) for retirees vs. searching sites on each possible location to find out about costs of living? Thanks!

Love the Mayberry comment. I am 48 and watch it every night when going to bed. Gave up watching news a year ago. I sleep much better!

I'm on the coast of CA ($$$$$$$), but am ready to leave after our rains and mudslides this week. It's been tragic.

I LOVE Cleveland and do not care what others may say. I visit 8x per year and it's always busy with theatre, sports, museums, etc. HOWEVER, the wife will NOT retire there (she did say it once and I should have hit "record" on my Iphone). She is leaning to Spokane (both have water and are green), but there is just more culture in CLE.

Anyway, if there is such a site that has built in coding for retiree costs, that would be cool. If not, I'm going to have to get busy coding a new search site.

Many folks have to live for many years where there are jobs in their field, or with the same pension paying employer although they would prefer to live elsewhere. Once free from that job obligation, they wish to live in a place of their own choosing. I don't see how that is hard to understand.

I also don't think anyone is deluding him or herself that life will be perfect wherever we relocate. Yet another misconception.


I, for one, was tethered here due to my job and family obligations. With those out of the way, I'm free as the breeze to choose as I please.


As my mother used to say, "They're just jealous!"
