I am sure we will hear the ongoing stories. You might remember my opinion of living in the Phoenix area for a number of years. It is a burning desert and a cultural wasteland. I still cannot begin to imagine wanting to leave northern CA for Phoenix. Summers just getting started and I doubt the monsoon humidity has rolled in yet.
They have an over 6000 sq ft home with I'm willing to bet a top of the line cooling system, a theater room and water features among other great things.
I don't think they need to be outdoors unless in a swimming pool.

I think it has more to do with ambience of the environment both mentally and physically, and the feeling of being inside a lot with burning temperatures raging outside.

Indeed they are.

Well probably bring the metal detector from the other house and go all over the property here to see what additional surprises we may find. Hopefully that day will be a little cooler.

exactly! Maybe he is an ocean/beach person and that type of environment with the pool etc is just not the same.

There was an interesting article about metal detecting. I'll have to find it and post.

I guess this proves money can't buy happiness. We're in a 1400 sq ft home in NJ and haven't taken a trip since we retired here 11 years ago. We keep it at 71 degrees 24x7/365.

Well, you can always come visit. How about next week? Looks like it'll hit 115.

Seriously, I know what you mean, and this is not the end of the world. You can't even see it from here.
