I can't wait to hear about your first winter! I'm in CT and we've had 2 frosts already
I'll be joining Meo for my first winter here in Tucson, not too far away, but with roughly half the altitude,to compare it with 22 winters in Las Vegas. I just pray to God it's not as windy, with winds up to 60-70MPH which I painfully experienced in Las Vegas, and you do know about windchill, it gets down to the high 30's at night and throw a merciless wind behind it and? Being I worked the nightshift for 17 years in Las Vegas, out and about during the coldest times of the night, I wore long underwear up there from November thru February. As long as it doesn't get windy, I can handle nighttime temp's in the 30's without long underwear. This should be interesting!

A big part of my retirement happiness here stems from my cutting the umbilical chord to Las Vegas. If I was physically able, I'd do cartwheels every day to celebrate! I now know the feeling of those that jumped the wall from East to West Berlin, decades ago!

Not being aware of the frequent very strong winds in Las Vegas, I investigated on the internet after reading your post above.
Interesting!

Wouldloveto, I was looking at the Cookville area. Check on the Tennessee forum. Lots of good info and wonderful people.

I would say I feel bad about not going there but I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason.

It would be helpful to know where you moved. Not everyone has been folllewing your every post
If you look at the info at the top right of someone's posts, it shows where they live, if they choose to publicize that - which she does.

Vegas - The Windy City
For those that like to veer away from windy cities, you can also Google Windiest Cities In The Country, highest average annual wind speeds, Cheyenne, WY, L.A and Phoenix tied for last place at 6.2MPH. If I recall the average annual wind speeds for the Tucson area, perhaps mistaken, is around 8.0, better than 9.2MPH in Vegas.
